Meet Chris & Lauren McComic (with Mack and Lincoln):
Chris, who is 38 years old, was born and raised in Houston, Texas. His parents Jim and Kay McComic still live in the area along with his two older sisters, Michelle and Kim, and their families. Chris has been married to Lauren McComic for almost six years and together they have two wonderful boys, Mack and Lincoln. Mack is 16 months old and Lincoln is just 2 months old. Lauren is an amazing wife, mom and partner in ministry. You will find her to be a very loving, genuine and faithful woman of God. Outside of his relationship with Christ, Chris treasures Lauren and will never fully be able to express how thankful to God he is for bringing her into his life.
Chris became a Christian when he was in the fourth grade where his dad led him to Christ as they prayed next to Chris' bedside one evening. This was the beginning of a tradition where Chris and his dad prayed together each evening before bedtime. Approximately 3 years later, while in the seventh grade, Chris received his call to serve Christ in full-time ministry. This call has been confirmed repeatedly and one in which he has never wavered.
Chris began serving in churches as a student ministries pastor when he was 18 and a freshman in college at Oklahoma Baptist University. After graduating from Oklahoma Baptist, Chris attended Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary where he received his Masters of Divinity Degree with Biblical Languages.
Since this time Chris has served churches both in Maryland and Texas. Most recently, he has served as the lead pastor for a church in the Fort Worth area. However, Chris and Lauren are both extremely excited about following God wherever He leads and are looking forward to planting their lives and serving there faithfully for many, many years to come.
Chris’ primary desire is to honor Christ with the whole of his life and model this for his wife and children. Secondarily, he desires to be faithful in his call to the ministry by partnering with and leading a church to bring glory to God with the whole of their lives. If you could sum up the focus of his ministry in one word, it might be relationship… our relationship to God first and then to our neighbor second. Because of this, Chris brings four areas of focus within his ministry and desires to see these lived out within the life of the church. They are…
Intimacy with God
Transparency in Relationships
Passion for Truth
Chris and Lauren are looking forward to meeting each one of you and look forward to what God has planned at RVCC in the future.
