Chris Laws, Youth & Connections Pastor

I have been in ministry for 15 years, and I love Jesus, my family, and my students. I especially enjoy helping people get connected and take the next steps of faith in Jesus Christ. I have been married to my amazing wife Karla since 2002 and we have three beautiful daughters. For fun I like to ride a motorcycle, go backpacking, play guitar, mess with technology, and go four-wheeling. Some of my favorite movies are the Star Wars saga and The Lord of the Rings trilogy. You can find me rockin’ out to Thousand Foot Krutch, Skillet, and a variety of worship music including Chris Tomlin, Charlie Hall, Matt Redman, and Jeremy Riddle. My favorite foods include lasagna, pizza, sushi, and Moe’s.

My Responsibilities:

  • Oversee and promote Jr. and Sr. High ministry. Develop leadership team to shepherd these students. 
  • Establish connections with parents to equip them as the primary faith nurturers and help them implement the milestones. 
  • Plan and implement connections with new visitors and guests. Help assimilate newcomers and link attendees to a relationship on a ministry team or pastorate.
