Dr. Chris Powell

Chris became our pastor in 2013.  He has served as a pastor for the last 16 years and as a minister of music and youth for 6 years prior to becoming a pastor.  He is a graduate of Hardin-Simmons University with a degree in Social Work, and also earned a Master of Divinity from Logsdon Seminary at Hardin-Simmons University. He completed a Doctor of Ministry degree at Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary in 2011. His field of study was the Mission and Evangelism track with focus upon the Missional Church.

Chris has been married to Krista for 17 years.  He descirbes her as ,"the love of my life, my best friend, and partner in ministry."  She has a heart for God, people, and the church.  They have three children, Noah, Chloe, and Bryan.. Noah is an energetic 7th grader. He loves sports and music.  Chloe is a 4th grade princess.  She loves Barbie, American Girls, picking on her brother, and riding her bike.. Bryan is 5 years old and wants to do anything his brother does! Chris loves to spend time with his family and enjoys being outdoors. A favorite family past time is camping.  Big Bend has caught the families heart!  Chris enjoys playing golf, or at least playing at golf, reading, and music.  He is the world's Biggest Superman fan.  

Chris's favorite scripture verse is Habakkuk 1.5, “Look…and watch—and be utterly amazed. For I am going to do something in your days that you would not believe, even if you were told.” He believes that God is inviting the church to participate with him in his mission, and the mission of God is beyond our imagination.  When we decide to join him in that mission we will be utterly amazed. Chris loves serving as a pastor because God’s plans are always beyond anything we can comprehend.  He has a passion for people, missions, and preaching.
