Chris Peña is a native Texan, a graduate of Baylor University and the Pastor of Foundation Christian Ministries. Growing up, Pastor Chris was told many times that he would be a Pastor, however, he adamantly declined the call toward ministry.
In the summer of 1999, the Lord changed Pastor Chris’ heart and he recognized God’s calling on his life. After much prayer and seeking from God, Pastor Chris felt conviction in 2000 that he was to start a work in the Bastrop area.
Over the next few years, Foundation Christian Ministries would become one of the fastest growing churches in the state. Under Pastor Chris’ leadership, FCM was able to establish herself as a church that would reach beyond ethnic, social-economical and denominational barriers to reach the world for Christ.
Pastor Chris is a passionate speaker who delivers God’s message with boldness and conviction. He has the ability to bring God’s Word to life and make you live the Good News Story. With a contagious zeal for being a Christ-Like Disciple Maker, just being around Pastor Chris will move you closer to living a life completely sold out to Christ.
