Chris Merz
Location Pastor

Pastor Chris Merz and his wife Abby moved from Celebration, FL to Rockford, IL in 2013 to join the City First Church team because they believed so strongly in Pastors Jeremy & Jen and their vision for Champions Club.

Chris has been lending his leadership and passion in multiple positions, but most recently has had the role of Serve Pastor. He has provided oversight of all Serve Teams for City First Church, including our God Behind Bars locations at Dixon Correctional Facility and Hardee Correctional Institution.

Chris and Abby met while serving in ministry in Celebration, FL and have been married since 2008. They, along with their two children, Kinley and Zeke, are diehard Ohio State Buckeye fans and are passionate about loving the community of Cape Coral and connecting people to Jesus!
