Chris has been married to his beautiful wife, Jaimie, since July 18, 2009. They are blessed to be members of Wildwood Community Church in Norman, Oklahoma, where they have attended since January 2007. They are eagerly expecting the birth of their first child, a little girl, sometime in late May or early June.
Chris graduated from the University of Oklahoma—where he came to love writing and theology, and also where he met his wonderful wife—with a degree in physics, and now works as a software engineer in the Oklahoma City region. In the future, he and Jaimie hope to be involved in church planting or frontier missions—likely with some time spent at seminary first.
When Chris is not busy writing for Pillar on the Rock, he fills his time on web development and design, running, reading, writing at chriskrycho.com, composing instrumental music, practicing piano for the church worship team, and spending time with Jaimie (often over an episode of Castle or Chuck or playing video games together).
Chris' primary passion is seeing all things in light of Christ and his word. From this comes his delight in worship, love for the church, and hunger for the world to truly know God.
A native Texan, PJ graduated from Texas A&M University with a degree in Computer Engineering. It was during his time at A&M that his calling was cemented—to live his life for Christ by improving his Church and equipping his people. Although he has been part of a church his entire life, PJ's love for the Bride of Christ has grown significantly in recent years. In all that he does, PJ hopes to love Christ, and his Bride, more and more.
PJ is currently taking classes at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.
By trade, PJ works as a software developer in DFW, PJ hopes to be able to use his position (and his future travel) to encourage local churches wherever he may go.
On December 22, 2007, PJ became the fortunate husband to his radiant bride, Katie. He says that it is truly a joy for him to give himself up for her. Katie is excited to be a stay-at-home wife and mom of the Kings' three adopted children. (You can read about their adventures at Adopted by the King.)
PJ and Katie are excited to be members of a small, healthy church in Fort Worth, TX—Church of Christ the King. You can read about their intense process of finding and being led to this church.
