Bro. Chris founded Saved by Grace, a Christian Music Ministry in Summer 2000. In Spring 2003, he expanded his ministry to include the Internet, so that he could share the Gospel and the Truth of God’s Word around the world. That Summer, Bro. Chris surrendered to the Lord’s call upon his life to leave a twenty-five (25) year career in the Information Technology industry and enter the Gospel Ministry full-time. Chris immediately began attending New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary.
Bro. Chris was licensed by his home church (Double Springs Baptist Church of Maben, Mississippi) in Fall 2004, and was ordained in Spring 2005. He served as Pastor of Fentress Baptist Church of Fentress, Mississippi, from Spring 2005, through Fall 2008.
Through the years, Saved by Grace has received many requests for assistance from other ministries around the world seeking aid in the form of Bibles, food, clothing, caring for orphans, widows, and the less fortunate, etc. In Spring 2013, Bro. Chris incorporated Saved by Grace, Inc. as a 501c3 non-profit organization making the ministry eligible for international, federal, state, local, and private grants in an effort to be able to answer these pleas for help.
Bro. Chris and his wife Stefanie enjoy living in the country and raising their many pets. He continues to devote his time and effort to Saved by Grace as he also accepts other opportunities for evangelism when presented. She loves animals and is the owner and operator of her own pet grooming and boarding business.
