GYMN’s founder and current Executive Director, Chris Davis, is an experienced youth pastor with over 18 years invested in youth ministry. Chris has worked in churches ranging from 100 to over 2200 in attendance, along with several years experience in para-church youth ministries.
Chris mixes academic credentials with practical experience. Since obtaining his Masters Degree in Christian Education-Youth Ministry, Chris and the GYMN staff have trained over 8220 youth leaders on five continents. Chris’s passion is equipping youth leaders internationally in a practical and purposeful manner. Chris, along with the GYMN staff, have also written several resource books on youth ministry including, “Basic Training Discipleship” and “Connection Points” for youth leaders.
Sports, reading and technology are Chris’s main interests outside of the ministry. Since the age of 9 Chris has participated in the game of soccer (football, for those outside the USA). It is not a coincidence that Chris learned to play this sport when few others were playing it in the mid 1970′s in the US. Now Chris enjoys a good game of soccer when he has a short break at a training session anywhere around the world.
