Pastor Chris was raised in Coral Gables, FL. At the age of twenty-four, he received Christ as His Savior. Shortly thereafter, he married his beautiful wife, Silvia. God has blessed them with three amazing children... Bryce, Mia, and Nico. Pastor Chris is a graduate of Palm Beach Atlantic University and Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary.
He has been involved in ministry for over twenty years and looks forward to all that God has in store for both the church and the community. One of his favorite passages is:
I Peter 2:9-10 - "But you are A CHOSEN RACE, A royal PRIESTHOOD, A HOLY NATION, A PEOPLE FOR God's OWN POSSESSION, so that you may proclaim the excellencies of Him who has called you out of darkness into His marvelous light; for you once were NOT A PEOPLE, but now you are THE PEOPLE OF GOD ; you had NOT RECEIVED MERCY, but now you have RECEIVED MERCY."
Pastor Chris' desire is to proclaim Christ & admonish His church so that we fulfill our purpose in making fully committed followers of Christ.
Miami Shores Baptist Church began in 1947 as a mission of Central Baptist Church of Miami.
Dr. C. Roy Angell, pastor of Central, guided several members from Central to start a congregation in the Miami Shores area. On September 7, 1947, a group of people met at the Miami Shores Theater, and 24 of them declared themselves a new “Miami Shores Baptist Church.” Reverend Clarence Eiland began the work, and on June 19, 1949, Miami Shores Baptist Church was chartered and became a reality with 157 members. In time, a chapel with an educational building was built.
Miami Shores Baptist Church has stood for many years and, as we follow God, we know that God will continue to build His church.
