08 Jun Meet The Team: Find out more about Von and Chrissy!
We want to give you a chance to get to know the amazing group of people who are on our team here at King’s Church! Check out our blog for new profile pieces with our King’s family.
Von and Chrissy
Von and Chrissy are part of the setup and tear down team at King’s Church.
How did you two meet?
We were classmates at Cuyahoga Community College in 2008 and in passing we would cordially speak but weren’t interested in one another. Von was flirting with girls in our class. Haha! God knew he wasn’t ready for a real woman then! We formally met each other at our old church.
What do you do for a living?
Von does awesome work as a patient transporter at the Cleveland Clinic.
Chrissy is a student in a graduate program, and does some consulting work with friends who serve in the local community.
How did you get connected to King’s Church?
To “honor” your time, like Pastor Noah says, God led us to King’s, and we have been rocking out for eight months now. God used the “Love Is Red” conference to lead us to Faith Family Church. We were streaming a worship experience on a Wednesday night, which happened to be Pastor Noah’s farewell service. Our hearts aligned with the mission of King’s and what he and Pastor Stephanie were coming to Cleveland to start.
What do you love most about being part of the team?
The spirit of God is very much present within our team. We are family, and we are growing a unique bond together.
What are the first 3 words that come to mind when you think of King’s?
Pure, love and community.
Chrissy: “Trust in the Lord with all your heart; don’t rely on your own intelligence. Know him in all your paths, and he will keep your ways straight.” (Proverbs 3:5-6)
Von: “They are always thinking about how much it costs. “Eat and drink,” they say, but they don’t mean it.” (Proverbs 23:7)
Favorite Bible character?

What is the last meal you ate?
If you woke up tomorrow as an animal, which one would it be and why?
