Rev. Dr. Chris Pritchett joined MOPC in June of 2020 in the middle of the Corona Virus Global Pandemic. Pastor Chris' first year was spent preaching to a relatively empty sanctuary that was broadcast live on Facebook. In June of 2021 we were finally able to worship as a church family within our church building with Pastor Chris teaching the Gospel.
A native of Southern California, Chris received his undergraduate degree at Westmont College in Santa Barbara, California and his Master of Divinity degree from Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, California where he received an award for overall excellence. He has also completed a Master of Theology in Preaching (Th.M.) degree from Princeton Theological Seminary, where he was the recipient of an award for excellence in preaching. Chris has just completed his studies for the Doctor of Ministry degree at George Fox University in Oregon.
Chris’ other pursuits include contemplative spirituality, health and wellness, supporting his kids’ soccer, spending time outdoors with Devon, hiking, surfing, running, gardening, and, skiing and snowboarding.
