When asked about his time at Grace, Chris shared these memorable words with us: “My time at Grace helped to make an impact on my life and career in the sense that – even though it might sound cliche – my time at Grace made me want to be a better person in all facets of life… My mentors, Cory Jamieson, Coach Krombeen, and Dr. Mark Carroll… made me want to become a better Christian and helped me realize that you don’t have to be in ministry to do ministry.”

Chris also shared about his fond memories of Grace JV basketball and Fellowship of Christian Athletes. 

Thank you, Chris, for sharing your story!
