Chris Livingston


Since becoming a Christian in 2001, my passion and will to do ministry has grown with God's increase.  Working for nearly 5 years in sales at Ken's Toyota has taught me a lot about myself and others.  It has proved to be an invaluable experience.  During that time, my gifts and passions for people formed as well as the growing desire to be in full-time ministry.  In December of 2008, I retired from the auto industry to pursue a life and career in ministry.  The following Fall marked a move to Harding University to join the Center for Advanced Ministry Training (CAMT) program. 

I graduated this last December and received a Bachelor of Ministry degree.  This opportunity has been a tremendous blessing with thanksgiving to God and His Church, who have helped to encourage, teach and raise me up in Christ.  My wife, Amanda and I love the Church and we have committed our lives to being servants of it.  Amanda is from Tianjin, China.  She graduated last May from Harding University with a Masters of Business Administration.  We are not only excited about our recent wedding but a future partnership with a loving and Christ focused congregation.
