Meet our Student Ministry Staff

Chris Mixer-Director of Student Ministry

Chris Mixer joined our staff on May 1, 2016. He grew up in Jacksonville, Florida, where he was Confirmed and came to know the Lord as his personal Savior. He attended the University of Florida, and graduated with two degrees (Religion and Business Administration). While at UF, he served with YoungLife and fell in love with student ministry. Knowing he was gifted and called to disciple students, Chris accepted his first full-time youth ministry position in 1998, in Panama City, Florida. After four years, Chris met and married his wife, a talented photographer named Dana. Over the next 14 years, they would serve in two more cities: Mountain Brook, Alabama and Woodstock, Georgia. In 2008, Chris and Dana welcome their first child, a lego-loving son named Jules.
