    Chris Philbeck

    Chris Philbeck has served as the Senior Pastor of Mount Pleasant Christian Church since November 2001. Before coming to Mount Pleasant, Chris served as the Senior Pastor of Northside Christian Church in Broken Arrow Oklahoma, and Kingsbridge Christian Church in Sugarland, Texas.
    In his thirty years of ministry Chris has had the privilege of leading a new church work, a turn around church, and now a mega church. Chris has a passion for preaching and empowering people to serve and lead in the local church. In addition to his love for preaching, Chris is constantly working towards connecting people to Jesus Christ in extraordinary ways by showing others what we are called to do as followers.
    Discovery is essential and everyday Chris devotes his time to sharing the good news of the Lord by showing how Jesus Christ is sovereign; and how He can make a spiritual transformation within anyone who has opened their heart to Him. The energy, enthusiasm and dedication that Chris displays as a follower of Christ just shows the unimaginable opportunities that can open once you share your life with Him.
    Chris is a graduate of Ozark Christian College (BBL, ABS, ASL) and has work alongside influential people who are admired within their fields at Houston Graduate School of Theology, Johnson Bible College, and Taylor University. Chris and his wife Sandy have been married for 30 years and have two children: Andrew and Tricia.
