Hi! My name is Christopher Simonton and I am the Student Pastor here at FBC. My calling as a pastor is to introduce students to Jesus and walk with them through the big questions of life and faith. I grew up in Houston, Texas and received an English degree from the University of Houston and my Masters of Divinity from Truett Seminary in Waco. I was called to serve at FBC in 2017 and have loved getting to know and work with the youth and their families.
I married my amazing wife Sammy in 2019 and we have a small dog who loves to go for long walks. We watch tv and love cooking together. I love to read, exercise with weights or running, play video games when I have the time, and spend time with family. I am also a published author of one Christian science-fiction novel and am working on others. I am starting work on my Doctorate of Ministry in the Fall of 2021.
