DISCIPLESHIP PASTOR / COFFEE ROASTER
Chris (2011 18 Inch Journey alumni) and his wife Jessie (2008 18 Inch Journey alumni) are both North Carolina natives. Throughout the year, Chris manages weekly roasting and operations for Maker Coffee and co-leads marketing for the Cageless Birds. During the schools, Chris co-leads Phase II and teaches Digital Storytelling and Videography collectives where he empowers students to become effective aural and visual communicators.
