Hey! I'm Chris. My kids are the fifth generation of our family to call Wyoming "home". Both Jenni and I are proud graduates of Wyoming Park High School (1994) and we live in the northwest part of the City of Wyoming.
I have the privilege of leading Newhall and Elevation as we move into a new start together.
Along with my wife since 1996, Jenni, "Team Hall" also includes Luci, Wyatt, Carson and Kairi. We've been blessed by foster care and adoption. Oh yeah, I can't forget the furry, canine team member: Minnow. Also, we love exploring the greatest state in the galaxy: Michigan. Rumor has it we have a special affinity for ice cream.
I cheer for the Lions, Tigers, Pistons, WMU Broncos and, of course, the Wyoming Wolves. Before pastoring, I did some work at Habitat for Humanity of Kent County, helped start Grand Rapids YouthBuild, and served as Executive Director of the nation's first statewide green home certification program, Green Built Michigan. I was a lobbyist way back too. But don't hate on me. Affordable housing, green building, nonprofits. That's been my thing.
