Pastor Chris Faylor came to Big Spring Heights in Newville in October of 2014. Prior to that, Pastor Chris served and ministered in Manns Choice PA, Pittsburgh PA, Claysburg PA, Arcadia FL, Nothwood OH and Gassaway WV. Pastor Chris earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Pastoral Ministry from Lee University in Cleveland, TN in December of 2000. Much of his ministry was focused and dedicated to youth and children’s ministry prior to becoming a Lead Pastor. Pastor Chris has served on the Youth and Discipleship Board for the Pennsylvania Church of God and is actively involved in the Newville community.

Pastor Chris is married to Sarah. Sarah has a Master’s in Social Work and works as a Hospice Social Worker. She serves with her husband in the church ministry and gives leadership to SISTERS, the Ladies Ministry Group.

No one is immune to the challenges of this world but the Faylor’s choose to live by Romans 8:28

“And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.” NKJV.

Although Pastor Chris loves to teach, preach and sing, he truly enjoys building relationships! God has given him a simple cause: that he and the church are #ForNewville. For spiritual health and growth. For family strength and support. For community care and service!

Caleb attends High School, runs media and plays guitar at the church. Hannah attends the Middle School and helps in the church nursery and Evan is enrolled on one of the local elementary schools.

The Faylor’s also have four furry family members; Megan, Daisy, Samson and Dash.

Pastor Chris invites YOU to come be a part of the wonderful faith family at Big Spring Heights.
