In March 2016, Chris moved from full-time work at TCI as Head of Partnerships and Director of NCRS to a new position at the Archdiocese of Wellington where he is now Leader: Family and Young Church Ministries.
Fortunately for TCI and our students, this role with ADW still allows him to teach some courses for TCI.
With an extensive background in youth and young adult ministry, Chris has a keen interest in the faith formation of lay Catholics. Chris’s doctoral study focused on Catholic religious identity among young adults in New Zealand. A key finding pointed to a seeming lack of connection between contemporary Catholic faith and every day life, an interface that drives Chris work in pastoral theology. Chris is married to Veronika and together they live in the Hutt Valley. They have three children.
