Chris Bechtel

Lead Pastor

Tell me about Chris?

Chris was born and raised in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and is a passionate Packer and Bucks fan! He attended North Central University in Minneapolis, MN, and received a degree in Psychology and a minor in Biblical Studies. Hannah chased him down in college and that is where they did life and ministry for 20 years before they took the leap of faith to start a church in Utah.

What does Chris enjoy?

Chris enjoys watching and playing sports of any kind, but really loves cheering his kids on from the soccer sidelines and dance floor with a coffee in hand! He loves running and one of his life goals is to qualify for the Boston Marathon! He also goes gaga over pastries… which could be why he hasn’t qualified yet.

What does Chris love most about Utah?

“Without a doubt, it’s the people. Many have a genuine desire to know, serve, and love God. Faith conversations happen effortlessly because hearts are open and eager to discover more about God. Let’s not forget about mountains… oh, the views!”
