Chris Denharder

Core Team elder

Chris is from the USA and has lived in Wales since 2004.  He is married to Becky and they have two young boys.

Vision for the Church:

I believe Excellence in Leadership honours God and my vision is to see leaders using our individual giftings and passions to the best of our ability - to serve God, the local church and our community.

Interesting fact:

I’m from California and like to tell people that I moved to Wales for the weather.

How do you relax?

Read, watch documentaries and play with my two boys, Ollie and Zach!
