Chris Florence joined the Covenant Seminary staff in 2011 as adjunct professor of practical theology. He brought with him several years of pastoral experience in varied places such as foothills Community Church (PCA) in Sturgis, South Dakota, Severna Park Evangelical Presbyterian Church (PCA) in Pasadena, Maryland, and First Presbyterian Church (PCA) in Augusta, Georgia. Chris’s special expertise in the areas of congregational care, sanctification, pastoral counseling, pastoral administration, and adult Christian education is an asset in the Academics Office as well as in the courses he teaches. Current research interests include cultivating pastoral critical thinking in graduate theological education. Chris is pursuing a PhD in higher education at Saint Louis University. Chris and his wife, Suzy, have a daughter, Bailey. When Chris is not working or studying, he and his family may be found kayaking, fishing, grilling, or watching movies or baseball.
