Hi. My Name is Chris Chase. I am a husband, dad of two, pastor at a really cool church, and an overall work-in-progress.
Welcome to my personal blog. Because it’s a personal blog, it will focus on things that stand out to me in the areas of family, personal growth (which includes embarasing stories), pop culture/technology, and at times, God and leadership. I’ll also from time to time write stories or make lists based on random thoughts.
My hope is to grow as a writer while giving friends and visitors an avenue to have honest talks about where we are all at in our lives while being able to laugh and learn together. If you’re looking for that, then this blog will suit your fancy.
I typically blog once to twice a week, with breaks in between with due notice. To make sure you don’t miss my newest posts, you can subscribe via RSS or e-mail by clicking on the “sign me up button” on my blog page.

Before getting married and having kids, I was a son and big brother living in Montreal, Quebec. I moved to Ontario as a young adult to pursue my religious bachelor’s in youth ministry at Master’s College and Seminary. It was at this school where I met my friend, then girlfriend and now wife Rebecca. While in my last year of school, I was offered the job of High School Pastor at Agincourt Pentecostal Church, then-and-currently led by Pastor Keith Smith.
I was High School Pastor there for four years before being invited to become student ministries team leader of Agincourt, a post I have held since 2009. During that time till now, Becca and I have had two children, Eliana and Liam. Both are unique and beautiful gifts of God who keep us laughing and learning.
In my free time I love hanging with the kids and wifey (as she is often referred to in my posts), writing, reading books (especially biographies and books on basketball), watching movies, learning about pop culture, attempting to get in shape and finding the humor in the most dire of situations.
The thoughts expressed here in this blog are solely Chris Chase’s ideas, observations & opinions. They do not represent in any way Agincourt Pentecostal Church (his place of employment), its staff or its congregation.
I am also growing my beard for fun. Check out some of my pics here.
