    Chris Philbeck

    Chris Philbeck has been the Senior Pastor of Mount Pleasant Christian Church since October 2001. Before coming to Mount Pleasant, Chris served as the Senior Pastor of Northside Christian Church in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma and Kingsbridge Christian Church (now Providence Christian Church) in Sugar Land, Texas.

    In his thirty-eight years of ministry, Chris has had the privilege of planting a new church, leading a turn-around church and now a megachurch. Chris is passionate about biblical preaching, effective leadership, helping people discover the new and better life they can have in Christ and developing new ways for the local church to make an IMPACT in the community and the world.

    In addition to providing leadership to the local church, Chris has been involved in a variety of para-church ministries. He was a founding member of the board of directors of The Solomon Foundation, the Chairman of the U.S. Board of Central India Christian Mission (CICM), member of the Continuation Committee for the North American Christian Convention, as well as other ministries. 

    Chris is a graduate of Ozark Christian College (BBL, ABS, ASL), with continuing education at Houston Graduate School of Theology, Johnson Bible College and Taylor University. Chris and his wife Sandy were married in 1982 and have a son, Andrew, (wife Kara), a daughter, Tricia, and three grandchildren: Grace, Jack and Wyatt. In his free time Chris loves to travel and play golf with his wife Sandy. He is a lifelong fan of the Oklahoma Sooners (BOOMER) and he cheers for the Indianapolis Colts and the Indiana Pacers. Chris’ favorite Bible verse is Galatians 6:9, Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. (NIV)
