MY HUSBAND, THE SPEAKER!!!!! (read his bio below)

Chris Wheeler passionately communicates the truths of God’s kingdom in fresh, simple and creative ways. His zest for life, zany caricatures, and living Biblical monologues make the Bible come to life. Add to this his beat-box skills and many various sound effects and you have a wild-haired people-magnet creating a memorable environment for the teaching of God’s word.

Wheeler, as his friends call him, has a personal life message of Grace that is inspired by his own journey through the spiritual bondage of legalism. Though his relationship with Jesus began when he was 5 years old, he often felt like God was somehow disappointed in his performance and that he could never quite be good enough for God. Through his relationship with his wife Lindsey, the encouragement of his friends, and God’s relentless pursuit of him, Wheeler’s eyes were opened to inexhaustible Grace.

Today, Wheeler wants people to know just how much God loves them and desires a relationship with them. Christianity is far more than another religion; it is the adventure of being a “little-Christ.” With energy, emotion, and deep conviction, Wheeler challenges people to become who God made them to be.His favorite quote is by missionary martyr Jim Elliot who said, “Wherever you are, be all there. Live to the hilt every situation you believe to be the will of God.”

Chris Wheeler graduated from Oklahoma Baptist University with a degree in Bible and a minor in family psychology. His ministry experience includes 6 summers at Kanakuk Kamps (K-7), attending the Focus on the Family Institute in Colorado Springs, CO, serving as Student Minister within Cleburne Bible Church in Cleburne, TX and is currently the Student Ministry Programs Director for Fellowship Bible Church, Brentwood, TN. According to Wheeler, his wife Lindsey is the greatest woman on the planet and undoubtedly his best friend. They have a Pomeranian named Polly Esther who is his little shadow.

The Heinrichs said...

This sounds awesome! I think you should make plans to speak here in Pittsburgh! I would love to finally meet you both!

Lindsey I am praying for you and your trip! I am sure Auri/Elvia wouldn't mind if I dumped out her piggy bank to help you see Eliana!

Whitney said...

I saw that Chris was at OBU, so I had to tell you that I was the black sheep of the family for not going there...everyone else was a bison! What year was he?

Also, Cleburne is not a well known place, and I grew up visiting my grandparents there (but they were at FBC Cleburne).

Praying for you all! She is amazing!

My daughter and I just heard you at Girls of Grace in MN. I think you can tell that 6-year-old self of yours (as he's practicing his 7-year-old walk in the front yard) that he can stop worrying - his life does end up making a difference! Just ask the hundreds (thousands?) of "little sisters" you have adopted out there who NEED a big brother just like you to tell them all those things they need to hear in an honest, caring, strong, convicing way! Absolutely amazing. Can't wait to receive your DVD and re-hear your message!
