Chris Cornett is our Children’s Pastor. It is his prayer that each child that enters into our Children’s ministry will first of all, come to accept Christ as their Savior, and then surrender their lives, fully and completely to the Lord. As the world is nearing Christ’s return, Chris believes if we are ever going to reach them with the gospel of Christ, we must do so during these younger years!
When Chris was 19 years old, he accepted Christ as His personal Savior, changing his life forever. On July 6th, 2010, the Lord placed the call to preach on his life. Through this calling, the Lord has opened the door for Chris to serve as our Children’s pastor since 2015.
During this time, Chris met his wife, Ashley, who was also serving in children’s ministries at her own church. Marrying in 2016, the Lord has now allowed them to work side by side with the youth at Wahoo Baptist Church and in their community. Chris and Ashley are both teachers in our public school system, allowing them to take the light of Christ into a place where kids are searching for hope! Chris says, “Our whole life revolves around kids. We currently don’t have children of our own, but we have about 40 kiddos that we get to love on each week at church. Those are our kids!”
Chris and Ashley realize the great responsibility that has been given to them, to show these kids that serving Jesus is the BEST life! They want each child to learn that the Bible is so much more than a book of “do’s and don’ts”; rather, it’s a love letter from the One that was willing to lay His life down for them. Chris and Ashley pray that, as they minister, each child would fall in love with Jesus and serve Him with their whole heart!
