Meet Pastor Chris

Dr. Chris Orr comes to us after serving 5 years as Sr. Pastor at a church in Harrodsburg, KY.  A Florida native, Pastor Chris was previously on staff at CRU (Campus Crusade for Christ) and held several staff positions at churches in central FL.  Pastor Chris earned his B.A. at the University of North Florida, his Master of Divinity at New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary and his Doctor of Ministry at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary.

Pastor Chris considers his wife, Katie to be his greatest ministry asset.  A sought-after conference speaker, consultant with NAMB and published author, Katie has a heart to teach women to love God's word.  Her published materials include the Everyday series and Bible studies co-written with Chris on Philippians and Jonah (upcoming).  Chris and Katie also co-host the Focused15 podcast which equips listeners with Bible study tools and tips in 15 minutes.  The podcast and more resources may be found at

Pastor Chris and Katie will soon celebrate their 15th wedding anniversary and they are the proud parents of Kenneth, Anna and Michael.
