We are very excited to introduce you to our new Worship Pastor, Chris Clark. Chris has been leading worship with us in a rotation of guest worship leaders over the past few months, and now we are able to welcome Chris and Emery to our team. Chris is coming to us from Bridgeway Church, a partner church in Acts 29. We are grateful for their partnership and for their heart to build Jesus’ kingdom. We look forward to the days ahead making authentic disciples of Jesus for the glory of God and the good of our world. Celebrate with us as we welcome the Clark family to Redemption.
Originally from Reno, Nevada, Chris grew up playing and studying music of all sorts. Classically trained on Viola, he spent many years playing in orchestras and small ensembles through his college years at the University of Nevada, Reno.
His passion for all types of music led him to explore and learn a wide variety of instruments which he played in several indy rock bands during a 5 year span in California. Chris married his high school sweetheart, Emery Jo, in San Luis Obispo, California in 2003. In their past 15 years together, they have served the local church with their musical giftings in many exciting ways.
In 2005, an invitation was extended to serve alongside a good friend at a church in Oklahoma City. Trusting that God had a plan, Chris and Emery moved their young family across the country and there discovered a deepening love for leading corporate worship. Feeling a strong call on his life, Chris began to ask God for the opportunity to step more fully into vocational ministry. In 2012, Chris, Emery and their 3 boys, Ezra, Myer, and Truman moved to North Edmond. There they met Pastor Jeff and Pastor Chris who welcomed Chris onto the team at Redemption Church.
Chris is thrilled to be a part of the expansion of the Kingdom of God in Edmond, Oklahoma and is looking forward with great anticipation to what God will do in this city
through Redemption Church!
Chris contributes regularly over at The Verses Project, which uses music and visual art to help people memorize and meditate on scripture.
