Chris Stull has been the senior pastor at Wellspring Church since its beginning in 2014. He and his beautiful wife Brenna have been married since June, 1989 and have seven wonderful children. Dillon, their oldest son, is pursuing an M.D. at Stanford. Derek and Caleb, their next oldest, are pursuing degrees from Dallas Baptist University and Oklahoma Baptist University, respectively. Micah and Karis are in High School. John and Mariama, their youngest, are both from Sierra Leone and joined the family in the summer of 2014.
Originally from Oklahoma, Chris moved to Arizona to serve as the Fellowship of Christian Athletes State Director in 1991. After several years of dedicated service with FCA, he came on board as the Young Adults Pastor at North Phoenix Baptist Church in 1996. He transitioned in 1998 to fill the role of Executive Pastor before following God’s call to McKinney, Texas to serve the same role at First Baptist Church of McKinney for nine years.
After a series of undeniable “God moments” that made clear God’s new direction along with God’s promise of Isaiah 43:19 on their hearts, the Stulls returned to Arizona in August of 2013 to plant Wellspring Church in the West Valley. The Stulls have already begun to see God’s promise come alive in the desert: “See I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland” (NIV). God continues to awaken hearts and bring people to Himself all across the Goodyear area and beyond. What an exciting journey this continues to be! If you wish to contact Pastor Chris, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
