Chris Lantz, Pastor

Chris Lantz moved to Clyde just in time to start Kindergarten and meet Jesus Christ through the ministry of Clyde Christian Bible Church.  He was raised up in faith at the church in Clyde,Read more

and it is therefore a tremendous honor for him to be a member of the Clyde community, working with both his former church fellowship and former school environment.

He holds a Bachelor of Theology degree from Alberta Bible College (’06), and continues to be a role model for many College students when they visit Clyde. Chris has a lovely family, including his best friend, Angie, whom he met at ABC, and their two spirited and wonderful daughters, Zoey and Tegan.

Chris has many things close to his heart: drums and music; the Edmonton Oilers; chocolate; camps; mountains; football; dinosaurs; and dancing.  But closest to his heart are the Kingdom of God and the love of Jesus Christ, as experienced, shared with and offered to dear friends, faithful family, a welcoming church, and a beautiful extended community.

Chris has a gift of building authentic relationships and intentionally being and reflecting the love of Jesus Christ. Alongside the Clyde church, Chris also credits the wise and patient counsel of the many professors, mentors and friends at ABC as instrumental in his faith journey.

Chris lives and loves passionately. His childlike faith is contagious. He loves Jesus. He loves his family. He loves his friends. He loves the Church. Chris desires and strives to live a life of humble service and joyful submission to Jesus, in the midst of all the joys and sorrows life offers. 

“It is a blessing and an honor to be in Clyde, seeking and serving The Father together.”

– Chris Lantz

Servant Leadership

"For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many." (Mark 10:25)

Here at Clyde Christian Bible Church, we rely on the Holy Spirit's unique gifting of our members, and their unending desire to serve the Lord and each other. Many of our activities happen because of the servant heartedness, hospitality and engagement of our members. We believe in striving to have a Christlike heart, and in the importance of humility, patience and grace as we learn and grow together. This is reflected in many informal leadership opportunities.

 "How good and pleasant it is when God's people live together in unity!" (Psalm 133:1)
