Chris Davis Pastor

About my family nucleus:
I met my wife when I was fifteen years old at the movies with friends and thought, “WOW, she’s gorgeous”. I met the Lord two years later and then she and I became best friends. We started dating at 18 and married at 25. We have one son, Daniel, and a baby girl on the way.
Salvation Experience:
When I was 17 years old, some friends attended an Encounter Retreat hosted by City Church. They shared with me how real the power of God was. Until then, I’d considered myself to be a Christian but my life contained no evidence that Christ lived in me. To be honest, I didn’t know much about the Bible. In fact, I had this strange thought that you couldn’t read the Bible. I remember praying this simple prayer, “God if your real, reveal yourself to me… If you do, I’ll serve you.” When my friends told me about the Encounter retreat (now Freedom Weekend), for some reason, I determined to go without being asked. That 3-day weekend literally changed my life. I experienced freedom through the cross, was filled with the Holy Spirit and have never been the same since.

I believe that God has given each person an incredible amount of untapped potential and that He’s given us the Holy Spirit to help us live the life that Christ died for us to live.

What was one of the most profound or impactful moments that you’ve experienced in life?
Our first family vacation, to Washington, D.C., deeply affected me. My wife, son, and I toured the capital, visiting the Martin Luther King Jr. monument and the African American history museum. While these sights really spoke to our progress in light of current difficulties, I began to realize that D.C. was the last city that my mom visited before she passed.I began reflecting on that, the history of our nation and being there with my first born child, I suddenly felt a deeper sense of responsibility as a father, leader and role model. It showed me that though we’ve come a long way, we need more influencers like MLK and other great leaders who have gone before us to rise up and make a difference in our world because we don’t have as much time as we think.
Where is your dream vacation?
My dream vacation is to spend a couple of weeks in the Fiji Islands or some remote tropical place.
