Summer camp was transformative for Chris. It was at Camp Zephyr that Chris felt God calling him to serve in full-time ministry. Chris had the opportunity to serve on the Zephyr staff where he learned the joy that comes from hard work done to serve others.

Chris currently serves as the Vice President at the South Texas School of Christian Studies in Corpus Christi, Texas. Prior to coming to SCS, Chris served as the youth minister and teaching pastor at First Baptist Church in Athens, Texas. He is currently pursuing a Ph. D. in Leadership at Dallas Baptist University; his dissertation will focus on leading ministry volunteers.

The most exciting part of student ministry for Chris is the opportunity to see students learn and grow as disciples. Camp was a big part of his own growth as a follower of Jesus and he hopes that your students are forever changed by their time at Camp Zephyr.
