CU Staff Worker in our South East region.
Chris grew up in a Christian family as part of a supportive local church. Taking two years out before Uni he served as a missionary with Youth With A Mission. Here, Chris learnt more of what it looked like to follow the way of Jesus; he served in community work, helped plant churches and supported long-term mission in various contexts – including unreached people groups in Western Kenya and Northern India.
A move up north saw Chris begin studying Theatre & Performance at Leeds Uni - home of chips, cheese and gravy. In addition to meeting some life-long friends, developing an obsession for coffee and the occasional lecture, Chris got involved in the Christian Union and loved being a part of a diverse community of students seeking to make Jesus known.
Having now joined the South East team as self-appointed specialty coffee evangelist on the sunshine coast, Chris is thrilled to be working with such creative and enthusiastic students. He is passionate about students excellently, persuasively and creatively communicating the good news of Jesus.
In the summer of 2019 Chris married Juliet, who he had met at the CU weekend away five years earlier! Ten pin bowling, pancakes, obscure gospel music and coffee are some of his other passions.
