Chris Chadwick accepted Christ as his Savior at the age of ten. Eight years later, while attending Pacific Coast Baptist Bible College, he committed his life to serving God as a full-time vocation. While in college he met and married his wife, Debbie. Since then, God has blessed their home with two wonderful daughters.

Pastor Chadwick became Youth Director at Calvary Baptist Church in San Dimas, California, and served there until he graduated from college with a Bachelor of Arts in Theology. After that, God moved the Chadwick family to Amarillo, Texas, where Pastor Chadwick served as Assistant Pastor of Central Baptist Church. God used this time to prepare the Chadwick family to move to San Diego. In 2002, they packed up their Ford Escort and headed west to start Canyon Ridge Baptist Church.

Over the next decade and a half, Canyon Ridge grew into a thriving, Christ-centered local church. God has continually increased Pastor Chadwick’s love and vision for CRBC, and he is excited to see what God will continue to do in the future.
