Chris Harris
Lead Pastor
I was born and raised in the oil fields of West Texas. I spent most of my childhood in a small church there. In my teen years, I felt the church had left me so I left the church. I wandered for many years.

Growing up and as an adult, I made some destructive choices. God began using my alcoholism and the promiscuity of my life to ultimately and graciously save me. I was separated from my bride and family due to those choices and in the midst of that destruction, God chose to save my wife and then used her greatly to reveal himself to me. I never knew the real God before that. Grace was just a word until that moment. Brandie, by the grace of God, was able to see past my failure as a husband and sin as a human and preach and pray for and to my soul. To read more click "my story"...

I'm looking forward to meeting you and hearing your story...
