Chris Stephens

Director of Worship Arts

I grew up in the great white north in Saint John, NB Canada. At an early age, I sensed a clear call into music ministry. I pursued that calling as a touring musician, recording artist and as an ordained pastor in the local church ever since.

My wife Megan and I met at Kingswood University (Sussex, NB) in 2001 where we started our journey in ministry together. We have three children Caleb (15), Myla (11) and Luka (1). We moved to Virginia from New York in March 2021 to join the community here at Restoration.

What excites me most about serving at Restoration is to see real life transformation happen through the work of the Holy Spirit. I love to see the church on mission, loving God, loving our neighbors, building bridges into the community and joining God in the renewal of all things.

When I’m not at Restoration worshipping together with our community I’m spending time with my family or traveling to visit family in Canada, Ohio, New York and Maryland. I also really enjoy reading, running and coffee.
