Pastor Chris has served in ministry for fourteen years. Pastor Chris started as a youth pastor at twenty years old in his home church in Nashville, TN. In 2004, Sonya joined him in that ministry. They were wed in their home church in 2005. While in that church they served as youth pastors, young adult pastors and worship leaders. They also headed up dramas, dances, youth band and were involved with many other ministries within the church. In 2010, they were asked to help start a church plant in South Nashville, TN. They gladly accepted the call of God to launch that ministry and moved in January 2011 to start that work. They served as associate pastors, worship leaders, youth pastors and small group leaders. In June of 2015, they were led to take over as lead pastors of Living Word Fellowship in Hendersonville, TN where they are currently serving faithfully.
Through each move and ministry transition, their four children (Taylor, Kiara, Isabella and Alyssa) have been faithful and steady. They serve right along their parents’ side and do whatever is needed to help in the ministry.
Pastors Chris and Sonya are so thrilled at the opportunity and the plans ahead for Living Word Fellowship. They fully believe that they are servants to the Lord and take their responsibilities very seriously. They believe God calls us first to Him and then to a position. They are so thrilled that God has led them to Living Word Fellowship and believe He is ready to take this church and this community to the next level.
