Meet The Rev. Christopher Lee and Family

Chris, Brandy, Erin (7), and Jordyn (2)

Chris is a championship tennis player and enjoys working in the yard when he’s not cheering on his favorite football team.

Brandy teaches English, is a gifted singer, likes to cook, and is looking forward to the warm Texas weather.

Their two girls, Erin and Jordyn, ages 7 and 2, are absolutely adorable and are excited to be moving to Texas.

What Chris Says

"I believe God is calling me to a ministry that seeks to engage with Christ as Christ is working in culture, unafraid and unashamed in welcoming strangers, engaging in theological discourse, and embracing the "tough" questions that culture, life and Scripture presents."

"I seek a community that values both theological and cultural diversity, communal connectedness, unwavering hospitality, creative outreach, genuine mission, and dynamic worship focused on our Risen Lord."

"The first thing my wife said to me when she read about the position at Canyon Creek was, '"Chris, that’s got you written all over it.'"
