CityReach Church Swissvale Staff
Chris joined the CityReach team in 2016, but has been an actively involved resident of Swissvale for over 13 years. He and his wife, Sarah, quickly became invested in the fabric of the community when they bought their home here in 2006. Chris has previously served as the chair of the Swissvale Recreation Board and the Judge of Elections for District 9. Recently, he was elected to serve on the Swissvale Borough Council.
"I never imagined having the opportunity to pastor a church in our very own neighborhood," Chris shares. "The thing I love most about my job at CityReach is that it combines my love of God and love of people with the opportunity to serve my community directly."
Chris earned his Master of Divinity from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. He loves taking the theologically complex and making it relatable. Prior to his work at CityReach, he spent 10 years working as Director of University ministry at the University of Pittsburgh. Chris is married to Sarah and they have three children.
