Our pastor, Chris Freeman, is a Fort Wayne native and a proud graduate of Snider High School and Taylor University – Fort Wayne. He met his wife, Madison, while attending Taylor. After graduating from college, he and his wife moved to Dayton, Ohio where he served on the staff of a large church for seven years. In the fall of 2015, he felt God clearly calling him and his family to plant a new church. They weren’t sure how they were going to do it, but they stepped out in faith, and God led them to a partnership with Pine Hills Church here in Fort Wayne.

They moved back to Fort Wayne in June of 2016, and hit the ground running to get a new church launched by November of that same year. Chris and Madison both have a heart for the city, and particularly love the south side of Fort Wayne. They are thrilled to be a part of what God is doing through Pine Hills City Church.

Chris and Madison have been married since July 5, 2008 and they have two kids, Piper and Bennett. Chris loves spending time outside, hiking, running, biking, rock climbing, or doing anything adventurous and physically challenging. He loves Jesus, loves people, and loves helping people know Jesus.
