Pastor Chris and his wife Wendi followed God's leading in 1998 to begin Wildwood Calvary Chapel. After serving in youth ministry for 10 years, Chris felt the strong call of God in his life to teach God's Word in the community of Yucaipa/Calimesa. Chris grew up in the Riverside and San Bernardino counties and so he has a real heart and connection with this area. What started as a small home fellowship in Wildwood Canyon eventually moved into the park and then into a local high school. And now under the ministry of Pastor Chris, Wildwood Calvary Chapel has grown to not only impact the local area, but has missionaries, church plants, and outreaches outside of the United States. Chris grew up a pastor's kid having a great example of faithfulness set before him. Pastor Chris and Wendi were married in 1990 and have three children, Tyler, Sawyer, and Tori.
