The Lord used the persistent testimony of a few high school friends to bring Chris to the place where he understood and believed the gospel at the age of 17. Months later, Chris was an undergraduate student at Princeton and attended Stone Hill (then Westerly Road Church). After graduating in 1994, he moved to Oklahoma City where he was an algebra teacher and coach. He enjoyed working with students, but after teaching for 6 years he began to sense a call into full-time vocational ministry. So in 2000 he and his wife Danielle attended Trinity Evangelical Divinity School where they both earned Master of Divinity degrees. In 2002, both Chris and Danielle returned to Princeton to serve as campus ministers with the Princeton Evangelical Fellowship (PEF). They have been serving with PEF ever since in addition to attending and serving in Stone Hill. They have 3 children: Lydia, Jeremy, and Laura.
