Chris Helding

NEXTGEN PASTOR

As a child, Chris dreamed of becoming a professional soccer player or astronaut (or both). But God had other plans for him. After giving his life to Jesus as a college student in his home state of Wisconsin, he knew he was called to ministry. Chris graduated from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School and pastored in Kansas and Wisconsin before coming to MEFC with his wife (Morgan) and two kids. He still enjoys soccer and hasn't ruled out a future career as a space pastor.
