Chris is a native of South Carolina, and was raised in Summerton, SC near the banks of the Santee Cooper lakes. He is a graduate of Clarendon Hall Academy, Francis Marion College, and attended Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.  Chris was saved at a young age, and was called into the ministry while attending Francis Marion College. In college Chris discovered he had a gift for communicating the gospel to young people, and has served several Churches and organizations in youth ministry for the last 15 years. While doing Youth ministry God began to allow Chris to speak extensively to a variety of audiences all over the country.  As he began to pray about this he felt God leading him into a full time speaking ministry. In 2004 after much prayer and counsel Wellspoken Ministries was created.
