It is with great joy and excitement that God has called our family to come in view of a call to FBC Owasso. We are extremely honored to have the opportunity to be a part of this great church.
I came to know Jesus at that age of eight and was grateful to be called to ministry at the age of fifteen. Four years later, I was captivated by a girl named Robin and asked her on an icy date at Falls Creek. After chasing her to OBU, I finally convinced her to marry me on August 13, 1994.
Since then, God has brought three wonderful children into our lives: Emily (13), Eric (11) and Maggie (8). I cannot wait for you to meet them.
Since beginning the journey of ministry in 1990, I have served in several churches across Oklahoma. FBC Thomas (1990-91), Council Road (1991-1994), FBC Ada (1994-1996). In 1996, we returned to Council Road Baptist Church in Oklahoma City. Additionally, I have served on the Board of Directors for Super Summer for the past twelve years.
In 2007, I wrote a book called “A Life Worth Following”, an 8 week spiritual journal built around the writings of Justin Sullivan, a young man tragically killed the day after being named Oklahoma’s, 2002 Baseball Player of the Year. This book served as the catalyst for the Ambassador Baseball ministry which continues to communicate the gospel through the game of baseball across Oklahoma, the United States and around the World. Currently, I am half-way through the doctoral program at Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.
Our family believes God is calling us to FBC Owasso. We cannot wait to come and be with you next weekend. As we have spent time with your Pastor Search Team God has clearly revealed His heart to us about this great church. We are excited come to Owasso and join you in loving all people to Christ and helping them on their journey with God and each other.
See you all next week.
Meet Chris and his family the weekend of March 4th. CLICK HERE for the weekend schedule.
