Chris Schoon

Pastor Chris has been serving here since 2011. Chris contributes regularly to our discipleship through preaching, worship, and other teaching times. Chris extends pastoral leadership within our Council and ministry committees, and participates with our elders and deacons in extending care within the congregation. Chris also mentors people preparing for ministry, engages in our True City and Classis Hamilton partnerships, and occasionally contributes to campus ministry efforts at Redeemer University College and McMaster University. 

Alongside his pastoral work, Chris earned a Doctor of Theology (Wycliffe College/University of Toronto), occasionally teaches mission and leadership related courses at Redeemer University College and Calvin Theological Seminary, and is a regular contributor to Reformed Worship and The Banner. When he can, Chris loves hiking on the Bruce Trail, firing up his backyard BBQ, and playing a wide range of board games.
