Raised on the border of the United States & Mexico, it was in no time at all until Chris found himself in a lifestyle of drugs, alcohol, lust and trouble. Not understanding why his dad slept at one house & his mom slept at another, sent him on a search that landed him at church. It was here he was invited to youth camp in the summer of 1999. This is where everything changed; Chris received the gift of salvation, experienced the baptism of the Holy Spirit and was called into full-time ministry all in one night!

RELEASING COURAGE & POWER TO RISK TAKERS AND DREAMERS
Having an incredible talent for dance led Erica into a career as a professional dancer for the Dallas Desperados, an Arena football team owned by the Dallas Cowboys. During this season of her life, a family member shared the good news of the Gospel with her which resulted in her making Jesus Christ her everything on May 14th, 2003. She resigned from the team and left the wild life she once lived so that she could radically pursue a relationship with Jesus.
After attending Christ For the Nations Institute, she and her husband, Chris became missionaries in Sri Lanka. From there they would serve as Associate Pastors & Youth Pastors In Euless, TX and now serve on the leadership team at Church on the Hill under Pastors Adam & Jami McCain.
