Chris Lindberg

Senior Pastor
For over seventeen years, Chris Lindberg has served the local church as he has ministered to couples, families, teens and ministry leaders.
.
In the Summer of 2010 he became the Senior Pastor of Life Fellowship Church. Under his leadership the church has mushroomed in vibrant growth from 120 to over 700 in less than five years. As a result of his leadership, Life Fellowship is now quickly becoming known in North Dallas as a welcoming community of Christians. Guests are captured by its spirit and vision, and are enthused by the opportunity to be a part of a growing church. Life Fellowship has recently purchased property on highway 121 in Craig Ranch McKinney and will begin construction on it’s new building soon.
.
Chris has a wealth of experience in pastoral ministry, church development, growth and church planting. His work has been featured on HBO, Dallas Morning News, ABC, CBS, Fox, Outreach Magazine along with other media outlets. He travels as a keynote speaker in churches as well as providing consulting expertise to Pastors, Youth Pastors and church leaders.
.
Chris’ greatest joy comes from serving the passionate community of Christians known as Life Fellowship. However, Chris’ commitment to Life Fellowship is surpassed only by his passion for family as a dedicated father of two children and a loving husband to his wife.
