Pastor Chris and his family felt God calling them to start Vertical Church in 2009. The church then launched in the spring of 2010. Chris has 28+ years of full-time ministry experience serving in Lexington, KY, Indianapolis, IN and St Louis, MO.
He is married to Stephanie, his youth camp sweetheart and ministry partner. They have a beautiful daughter Haven who has been an integral part of the church planting and growing. Chris has an exciting vision for Vertical Church and the great people of this area!
Pastor Chris has served on many boards, committees and has spoken in several conferences, camps and training events. His favorite of all these things is his family and pastoring Vertical Church. Oh yeah, he’s also a Kentucky Wildcat fan.
