Assistant to the Pastor
Chris grew up in Rockingham, North Carolina. When he was seven years old during Sunday School his teacher explained how Jesus had died for our sins to provide salvation and if he would accept this free gift he could know Christ as his personal Savior. At the age of 16 at a summer camp he felt that God was calling him to be a preacher. After graduating high school in 2015, he moved to Knoxville, TN to attend Crown College of the Bible. In May 2009 he graduated with a bachelors degree in Pastoral Theology and in that following June he married Crystal who had graduated from Crown with a degree in Elementary Education.
In July of 2009 the Hill family joined Eastside Baptist Church and in 2010 Eastside voted for Brother Chris to become the Assistant to the Pastor and Youth Director. God has blessed their family with three daughters, Abigail, Emma, and Olivia.
