Pastor Chris

Hey! I'm Chris. My three kids are the fifth generation of 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 Elevation in preaching and teaching but not that long ago I was a lobbyist (don't hate). As a Commissioned Pastor through the Church Leadership Center, I am living proof that despite our background God can use anyone for his purposes.

Along with my wife since 1996, Jenni, Team Hall also includes Luci, Wyatt, Carson and we recently adopted our foster kiddo. Can't forget the furry, canine team member: Minnow. 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 Elevation, I did some work at Habitat for Humanity of Kent County, helped start Grand Rapids YouthBuild, and served as Executive Director of the nations first statewide green home certification program, Green Built Michigan. Affordable housing, green building, nonprofits. That's been my thing. 

I'm currently doing some work at Inner City Christian Federation, I'm part of the One Wyoming church planting movement, the Acts 29 church planting network, a member of the Wyoming Community Development Committee, and member of the Wyoming Community Foundation.

My favorite part of the bible is Romans chapter 12. Look it up. You'll probably dig it too.
