Chris Groover

Students Minister

Life Story

The Lord abundantly blessed my siblings and I by allowing us to grow up in a Christian household with a great mom and dad. While I could articulate the gospel at a young age, it wasn’t until my freshman year of college that I truly put my faith in Christ. God really used my college years to shape my faith, and eventually I felt called into ministry around my senior year.

My wife, Sarah, and I got married in 2005 and have two kids, Lucas and Emery. We enjoy spending time with our family and friends while eating Tex-Mex. I love Student Ministry and walking alongside students as they come to realize a faith of their own.

Hope for The Village Church

My hope for The Village is that thousands of students will come to know and live out their faith during and well beyond their high school years. I hope that leaders, students and families are marked by the gospel forever because of the ministry happening here. May God be glorified in all that we say and do.
