Chris Hough

Director of Student Ministriesoffice: 703.425.3580 x205

I help set the overall vision for the Student Ministry.  This includes planning, organizing, leading and directing all ministries for our youth.  I also work closely with the Director of Kids Ministries and the Director of Connections in designing an integrated family ministry for the church.  I oversee a dedicated team of staff and adult volunteers and we have the unique privilege of walking with teenagers on their spiritual journeys and investing in their lives along the way.


I was born and raised in Richmond, Virginia.  I got my undergraduate degree in psychology and social sciences at JMU.  I then moved to Ft. Worth, Texas, to go to seminary.  While getting my Masters of Divinity degree, I worked at a residential treatment center for abused children.  I moved to Northern Virginia in 1991 to help start a church and have been in full-time ministry for the past 19 years.  I'm incredibly blessed to be married to my best friend, Linda, and have two daughters, Jordan and Kendall.
