Chris Beard PhD.
Minister of Leadership & Vision
I have been honored to serve Christ Covenant Church since 2010. Over the years I have seen Christ Covenant Church be transformed in heart and mind, and I'm proud to be part of a congregation who cares so deeply for God and others. In addition to serving at Christ Covenant Church, I'm involved in Christian Higher Education, serving as the Director of the Master of Arts in Organizational Leadership at Lincoln Christian University, and as affiliate faculty for the School of Business and Public Leadership at Johnson University. I've been married to Kerri since 1996, and we have four kids, two dogs, and an unhealthy obsession with the Kansas City Chiefs.
Minister of Engagement & Equipping
My family moved here because Christ Covenant understands that we're to be intentionally joining God's mission where we're planted. I have been married to my wife, Olivia, since 2010 and we have five children: Daniel, Becca, David, Anna and Asher. During the last 5 years I've served as the minister for three different churches in Tennessee, Kansas, and Virginia. Before that, Olivia and I served together as staff at a Bible camp in Tennessee. We love our Covenant family, and we hope you'll consider joining us!
