Chris Henkaline

Lead Pastor

Chris joins Discovery Bible Fellowship with a heart to make more and better disciples.  He believes the church should be the most creative, generous and influential organization within the community by understanding our culture, connecting people relationally, making Scripture come alive, and challenging people to something bigger than themselves that offers significance. He is passionate to help people experience the radical grace that Jesus offers by making the complex simple.

Chris hold’s a master’s degree from Liberty Theological Seminary in Biblical Leadership & Advanced Theology. His greatest dream is to equip the Church to reproduce itself far past his lifetime.

Chris has been married to his wife, Laura, for more than 20 years. They have four kids; Anna, Addison, Drew, and AJ.

In his free-time, Chris loves to play basketball, run, golf, root for his kids at their sporting events, and go on dates with his wife.  Dates and ice cream are a double win!
