About the Founder

Pastor Chris joined the army out of high school where he served as an infantry squad leader, using his G.I. benefits to complete a degree in sociology and education, and serving 5 years out of the Baltimore/Washington area as a counterintelligence special agent where he was awarded the meritorious service medal. Chris and Jackie moved to Northeast Arkansas to raise their son Adam near grandparents and where Chris served as a child abuse investigator for over 9 years. Serving in child protective services, Chris found God calling him to ministry. He completed the Christian Family Fellowship International School of Ministry in Poplar Bluff, Missouri and formed, "Reach Out Christ's Kingdom" (ROCK) Ministries in Piggott, Arkansas.

 

ROCK Ministries is dedicated to reaching out in God's love sharing Jesus to hurting people so God can heal them. He has also written, "It's Okay, You're With My Father" (A Child Abuse Investigator's call to the Church), which is our ministry message. He is married to Jackie who overcame abuse herself growing up. Their son Adam is completing his degree in computer network management, overcame a potentially life-threatening accident, leads worship at ROCK, and has already been on a mission trip and spoke at a city-wide crusade.
