My fifth grade year, my father answered the call to Pastor in Cortez, Colorado. While attending summer Camp at Silver State Baptist Youth Camp in Sedalia, Colorado, at age 11 I surrendered to preach. Immediately following my graduation from High School in Cortez, CO, I attended Baptist Bible College in Springfield, MO, where I completed most of my undergraduate studies. While At BBC, I met my wife Lisa, and we were married in the Summer of 1995. I later received my diploma from Heartland Baptist Bible College in OKC, OK.

January 8 - Pastor, Chris Chadwick - Canyon Ridge Baptist Church - San Diego, California

About Pastor Chadwick - Chris Chadwick accepted Christ as his Savior at the age of ten. Eight years later, while attending Pacific Coast Baptist Bible College, he committed his life to serving God as a full-time vocation. While in college he met and married his wife, Debbie. Since then, God has blessed their home with two wonderful daughters. Pastor Chadwick became Youth Director at Calvary Baptist Church in San Dimas, California, and served there until he graduated from college with a Bachelor of Arts in Theology. After that, God moved the Chadwick family to Amarillo, Texas, where Pastor Chadwick served as Assistant Pastor of Central Baptist Church. God used this time to prepare the Chadwick family to move to San Diego. In 2002, they packed up their Ford Escort and headed west to start Canyon Ridge Baptist Church. Over the next decade and a half, Canyon Ridge grew into a thriving, Christ-centered local church. God has continually increased Pastor Chadwick’s love and vision for CRBC, and he is excited to see what God will continue to do in the future.
