Chris was born and raised in middle Tennessee and came to know Christ while on a Fellowship of Christian Athletes retreat in college. After graduating from Tennessee Tech University in 1987 with a B.S. in Business Administration, he moved to Chattanooga and worked in public accounting for three years as a C.P.A., his forty years in the desert.
During this time, two wonderful events took place in his life – God’s call to ministry and God’s gift of a wife. Chris and Kim married in 1990 and promptly moved to the Los Angeles area for him to attend The Master’s Seminary. He chose TMS because of their strong stand on the Scriptures, sound doctrine and expository preaching, combined with their focus of training men for pastoral ministry in a church setting. Chris graduated in 1994 by the grace of God and loving support of his wife.
Prior to moving to Kerrville, he served Calvary Bible Church in Joelton, Tennessee as Associate Pastor/Elder. While there he helped in all aspects of a new church and likes to call this the perfect follow up training to seminary. Chris began his ministry at KBC on July 2, 2000.
He enjoys watching the Spurs win championships, the Steelers play football, coaching his youngest, playing in the Hill Country rivers, fun time with their kids Caleb, Katie and Carson, date nights with Kim and reading, lots of reading. Being a husband, father and pastor are dreams come true for Chris. By God’s grace he wants to be faithful to his calling in all three areas.
The McKnight’s count it a great privilege to serve the body of Christ at Kerrville Bible Church and just being part of this family. They love living in Kerrville, “holding forth the word of life.”
