Hi I'm Chris

I grew up in the Rose Park area of Salt Lake City. I am a paramedic. I like helping others.

About Me

I have been married to a wonderful woman from Venezuela for more than 18 years and we have 3 children. My family is the highlight of my life. I am a sports fanatic with Golf, Football, Baseball and Basketball being my favorite sports. I really enjoy and have enjoyed coaching my children in sports.

Why I am a Mormon

I remember asking my father when I was 9 or 10, whether my family would be mormons if we didn't live in Utah. My father responded with "Yes, because we have been blessed with a good family that joined the church in the early days of its history." I am a mormon today because I love Jesus Christ. I want to follow his example of loving people and helping in anyway I can. I know that he blesses me everyday with a strong and compassionate wife, loving children and a gospel standard to live by everyday. I served a Mormon mission in Arkansas and learned to share the gospel with the people of that area. During that time I was able to come to an understanding of Jesus Christ and the love he has for me. I know that I am a child of god. I know that by following him I will able to live with him again.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving as a Bishop of my Ward. A Bishop is like a priest or a pastor of a congregation. I love to serve the members of my congregation. I am able to teach and to be taught by all of the members that attend. I would not be able to be in this position without the love of our savior as he directs my life by living the gospel that has been restored to earth through a living prophet.

What are Mormon Temples used for?

Mormon Temples are for worship. We perform marriage ceremonies in the temples that last for eternity. We recognize and celebrate the dead by performing baptisms that allows them the oppurtunity to accept the gospel of Jesus Christ. Show more Show less
