There he ministered with several international worship & gospel artist. Pastor Chris attended Covenant Bible College & Seminary's and graduated with his bachelor’s degree, then began his master’s studies.

In July 2007 Pastor Chris was sent to Denver with a 5-star team to plant a multi-cultural church in Aurora. Pastor Chris became the pastor of the children, youth & worship/creative arts ministries.

2012-2019 Pastor Chris served as the Children's and Worship Pastor at The Healing Place Church where he fell in love with his first kids worker Stephanie. Stephanie is a Brighton native who received Christ in 2010 and began regularly attending church. In the summer of 2015, they got hitched and now they have had 3 children together.  


By 2020, Pastors Chris & Stephanie stepped out into the unknown to pray and seek the Lord for direction. Though they thought they were headed out of state, the Lord re-routed them to take the leadership of what was then known as Brighton Outreach Ministries or (BOM). They were installed as Pastors in September of 2020. 


In the spring of 2021, the Lord spoke to Pastor Chris along with the leadership team to change the name of BOM to Ignite Church International where the mission would be to ignite hearts from the neighborhood to the nations.

Pastors Chris and Stephanie look forward to what the Lord has ahead with the precious people at Ignite Church International and the front range region.
