Born January 15, 1986 in Memphis, Christopher is the oldest son of Christopher Briwder and Carla Briwder. He has been in music most of his life. By his high school graduation, he was able to play seven instruments and had a basic knowledge of every instrument family and voice. He received a music scholarship to the University of Memphis. Chris’ love for God goes back as far as his love for music. He accepted Christ at the age of four. He believes in and lives a life of holiness and sanctification. Pastor Briwder has also served in many capacities of the local, district, state and even national churches of the Church of God in Christ. In 2012, God led Pastor Briwder to start Temple of Praise. God has been blessing ever since. Chris is married to Candace Briwder and the couple has three boys: Caleb, Cody and Chris Jr.
