Born and raised in Zimbabwe, then living in Portugal, then Connecticut, Georgia, Texas and finally Indiana. Kris considers himself a third-culture kid but perfectly at home in all the places that he has lived. Kris has a genuine heart of getting to know people and has never met a person that he has not called friend. Kris has a unique testimony of coming to faith and how God is continuing the redeeming work in his life. After serving in sports ministry for 10 years, Kris joined our team at CG West. Kris enjoys spending time with his bride Tara. Together they have two kids, Ben and Lucy. Outside of his family, Kris loves watching and playing sports, playing and writing music, and hanging out with friends. God has wired Kris uniquely for the Kingdom and by God's grace he has grown over the years. Kris praises God for His constant mercy in this journey of continuing to shape him.
