Chris Cummings is an elder at GracePoint. He loves Jesus, his wife and their sons, Batman, and giant robots. Occasionally, he crawls through mud and leaps over fire. God saved him in his late thirties, radically changing his heart, mind, priorities, affections, and worldview. He’s passionate about helping people find their identities in Jesus, and living life to the full.
In his biblical role as elder, Chris is part of a team that leads the church (as outlined in 1 Tim 5:17; Titus 1:7; 1 Peter 5:1–2), teaches and preaches the Word of God (as in 1 Timothy 3:2; 2 Timothy 4:2; Titus 1:9), protects the church from false teachers (Acts 20:17, 28–31), visits the sick and prays (James 5:14; Acts 6:4), and helps to judge doctrinal issues (Acts 15:6).
