Chris and his wife Lyra joined Gateway in 2012 after being Associate Pastor in a thriving church in Wembley. Both were born and raised in India and came to Britain as missionaries in 2006. They have two beautiful daughters, Eliza and Daniella, who are very quickly learning the Welsh way of life.

Chris has a particular gifting in leadership training and teaching God’s word. He serves as area Leader for AOG South Wales, part of the New Wine Wales National Leadership Team, part of the Leadership Development team for AOG GB, as well as offering spiritual support and input to various church leaders and leadership teams.
Lyra serves as Church Care Coordinator and her pastoral heart is a real example to learn from.
