Pastor Chris has a deep desire for children, youth, and families to grow in their love for Jesus and compassion for their community. It is his hope and prayer that all families in the Kingstowne community hear and respond to the Love God offers them through Jesus.

Pastor Chris began his pastoral call at Faith Church Kingstowne on November 1, 2020, as the Assistant Pastor of Children, Youth, and Families. Pastor Chris and his wife Lisa of 7 years are very thankful to be back on the East coast after four years in Fresno, CA where Chris served as the Assistant Pastor of Community Growth at First Presbyterian Church of Fresno.

Pastor Chris Popadich and his wife Lisa both grew up in Pittsburgh and were reacquainted with each other over a Bible study while Chris was in seminary. He graduated in 2015 with his Masters of Divinity from Trinity School for ministry in Ambridge, PA.

Chris also spent 11 months in Guinea Bissau in West Africa as a missionary and English teacher. He also worked five years for the Coalition for Christian Outreach at Kent State University in partnership with Habitat for Humanity of Portage County.
