Program Director and Host | The Road Home     

Chris started at Moody Radio, in Spokane, April 2007 and originally hails from Warrensville Heights, Ohio. He has worked for Moody Radio since 1992. After a near collision between his Coast Guard cutter and a Navy ship in the Pacific brought his life into perspective, he realized, "If I would have died that night, I would have gone straight to hell, and God would have been justified in sending me there." That night he prayed for God's forgiveness and to know Him through Jesus Christ.

Chris met his wife, Gerri, at Moody Bible Institute in Chicago where he pursued a B.A. in Communications from 1989-1992. Chris and Gerri have four kids, Megan, David, Kate and Ken. He enjoys hunting, riding motorcycles, sailing and reading.
