My Journey - Pastor Chris

Thanks for what you shared Linden. I am looking forward to hearing from the rest of our bloggers. Since I am one of the bloggers I will give you a little of my story.

I was born in Southern California to Paul and Karen Reinhard. As a child we lived in Glendale, Sunland Tujunga, Fresno, South New Jersey, and finally ended up in San Bernardino where my dad came to pastor Calvary Baptist Church, now NCF. 

I attended and Graduated from Pacific High School in San Bernardino. In the summer between my Junior and Senior year I acknowledged God's call on my life for ministry. After graduating high school I headed off to APU where I recieved my Bachelors degree in Biblical studies. 

During my sophomore year in college I was offered a Youth Pastor position at Bethany Baptist Church In Montclair, Ca. I Pastored at Bethany through college and after for a total of 7 Years. Bethany is also where I met my wonderful wife Shannon. 

After Bethany I spent some time attending NCF, travelling and doing magic. About 4 years ago NCF offered me a part time position as Associate Pastor, I obviously accepted. I am blessed to be able to minister with my family. 

In order to subsidize my income I worked part time for a glass company driving trucks. About 6 months ago the company closed it's doors, and I purchased all the equipment and started my own company, Premier Glass Products. (

While at NCF my wife and I have had 2 Kids, Luke and Zoe. It has been wonderful ministering and raising a family at NCF. I love our vision of doing life together and making disciples. Our life group has become much like extended family. 

God Bless
Pastor Chris
