Chris Shinnick • Lead Pastor

Lead Pastor

Chris Shinnick

God has faithfully been preparing the Shinnick family for this pioneering adventure. Chris and Becky met at the University of Hawaii, where Chris played football and Becky was a cheerleader. They began doing ministry together both at their church and with Athletes in Action on the University Campus. They both have a passion to see people find themselves in Jesus, and discover their purpose for life through the Church.

Pastor Chris is an ordained minister who graduated from Denver Seminary with a Master's of Divinity degree in 2010. He has served in full-time ministry for over 14 years, seven as a youth pastor in Hawaii, and the last six years at Manna Church Cape Fear in Fayetteville, NC. He loves teaching God's Word, building up men, helping families thrive, and equipping people to change their world.

Chris and Becky have three children: Sebastian (10), Evangeline (7) and Emmett (5).
