Chris and Sue McDonald have been the Pastors of Life in Christ Church since August 2008. After accepting the call to ministry in 2000, Chris and Sue with their daughter Erin, moved to Amarillo TX. While there, they studied ministry and served on several different teams. Amarillo is where they each found their passion and became leaders in their areas of interest.

In June 2008, they felt that God was calling them back to KY to pastor Life In Christ Church and to raise up a generation of believers. When God spoke to them, he told them “the land is yours….go and possess it!”, so that is what they have set out to do. They believe that everyone was born with a call and a purpose and that with the right tools, everyone can discover what that purpose is.

Today, Life In Christ Church has hundreds attending on a weekly basis. We always want to be a THRIVING church not just a surviving church. Pastor Chris has always said “Let’s not just take Jesus out of the box, LETS BURN THE BOX!” We are always praying for fresh ideas to bring people to the full knowledge of Christ. The message never changes but the method has to from one generation to the next!

Pastor Chris has a very unique way of teaching God’s word so that everyone understands.


No, dear brothers and sisters, I have not achieved it,but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us. – Philippians 3:13-14
