Chris Oakes

Life Groups Director

Chris began attending FCC full-time in 2017 and joined the staff part-time in 2018. Since graduating from Indiana Bible College in 1997, he has served in churches in Ohio, West, Middle, and East Tennessee, including pastoring for more than seven years in Greeneville. Chris excels in teaching environments and enjoys helping people discover and grow their spiritual gifts. He and his wife, Crystal, have a passion for hospitality and worship, and would love to have you over for dinner next week! They enjoy traveling with their children, Caedmon and Cate, especially if the travel speed is measured in knots aboard large seagoing vessels. Chris is also a VP at Andrew Johnson Bank in Greeneville.
