Chris and Andrea, his wife, met and began dating in High School. They moved to Georgetown from Southern Illinois in 2003 not really because its closer to God’s Country (Go Wildcats!), but because of the dedication of a few student ministry volunteers working on the youth environments during the largest snow storm of late December 2002. That snapshot of Georgetown Christian's heart for kids, students, and their families is expanding into a feature length film of God’s work in the lives of many families in the surrounding counties. Andrea currently works for IU School of Nursing and the National Association of School Nurses and enjoys walking, jogging, traveling, and speaking. Chris enjoy grilling and smoking meat, watching UK sports, and many aspects of the outdoors, but his favorite is kayaking. Their children Noah, Micah, Grace and often foster child(ren) attend Floyd Central High School, Highland Hills Middle School, and typically one of the local elementary schools. Together their family enjoys swimming, board games, traveling, and trips to visit the family. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
