Chris was born in Parsons, Tennesse, but lived in Memphis since the age of two. He
graduated from the University of Memphis with a degree in Finance, and started earning
a masters degree in counseling at UM until his family asked him to come work for their
family business (Southern Concrete Products), which he did for 18 years. Chris and his
family moved to Oxford in 2000, and in 2005, he and his wife Leigh Ann (an individual
and family therapist) helped to plant Grace Bible Church with three other families. Chris
and Leigh Ann have one son, Elijah (age 18) who is a sophomore at the University of South Carolina.
