Chris Short

Executive Pastor

My Family: My wife, Sara, and I have four daughters.

My Story: I was born and raised in Sagle, Idaho where my parents still live today. I grew up in a great Christian family, but truly decided to follow the Lord while on a mission trip to Honduras as a Junior, in High School. I attended Boise Bible College and while there I fell in love with ministry. I met my wife Sara in college and we took our first ministry job in Meridian. After having our first child, we felt led to come back home to be near family, so we moved back to North Idaho. I took a job with our children’s ministry in 2007 and love being a part of what God is doing here.
