Although originally a South Florida native, Chris has lived in the Atlanta area for almost two decades. Chris was a professed atheist until he encountered Jesus in college. After seminary, Chris served in numerous pastor and church staff roles in the Atlanta area. Seeing a need for the Gospel to be planted into communities in the eastside of Atlanta, Chris and his wife Leah planted Resonate Church in 2012 with a planting team. Chris and Leah have three children, Elliot, Deacon and Quinn, and live in the East Lake neighborhood of Atlanta.
