Pastor Chris Quiring
Senior Pastor


  Hi, my name is Chris Quiring and I'm the Senior Pastor here at DCC.  I have been married to my beautiful wife Melanie for 13 years and have 3 children. Nathaniel is 9, Audrey is 7, and Zoey is 4. 

   Melanie was born and grew up in Barrie, Ontario, and I am a Prairie boy at heart. I called Winnipeg Manitoba home for 22 years before moving to Chatham. So, what's a Prairie boy and a Barrie girl doing in Southern Ontario? Well, that's a long story of God's call and our answer... and it'll have to wait for another time. What I can tell you is this, that I love God, I love teaching His Word, and I love watching Him make people into disciples. 

   One verse that has meant the world to me is Deuteronomy 4:29: 

But if from there you seek the LORD your God, you will find him if you look for him with all your heart and with all your soul.”

 It's a cool promise, and I'm looking forward to finding out what it means for you and me here at DCC!
