Kris attended Texas A&M University earning degrees in Mechanical Engineering and Electrical Engineering. After graduation, Kris applied his skills as an engineer in various areas of the aerospace and defense industry. Alongside his position as elder, Kris currently spends his professional time designing software for research and development equipment geared towards future space exploration.
Although immersed in the technical world, God intercepted Kris in 1994 while in college, redeeming him by grace through faith for the rest of eternity. As an engineer and software designer, Kris is keenly aware of understanding the “how” and “why” of things, all the while staying anchored in “first principles”. Therefore, he enjoys apologetics and the deepening of his understanding of Christianity. Kris enjoys reading a diversity of perspectives to gain a good view of the landscape and thus has been influenced by authors and theologians such as R.C. Sproul, James White, Sam Waldron, Pascal Denault, John Piper, Wayne Grudem, J.I. Packer, Martin Lloyd-Jones, and others.
During his studies in College Station, Kris met his bride-to-be, Jessica. Shortly after graduating, Kris and Jessica were married and have enjoyed growing together and striving to echo the biblical picture of Christ and the church through marriage. They currently have eight children and deeply desire to steward them for God’s glory and His purposes alone.
