Christopher came into a deep faith in Jesus as a child, having been raised in a Methodist Manse and devoted family. A set of encounters with God led to significant commitment to Jesus as his Friend and Leader. This developed into a call to lead God’s people, preach the good news and then to ordination to the Word and Sacrament.  Through naturally shy and introverted, he knows that God can do amazing things despite us.

Christopher studied through Rhodes University, and completed a Masters in Missional Theology and through the University of Pretoria.

Christopher and Leigh Harrison have been married for over 32 years and have two adult daughters. 

We love South Africa and her wonderful people and see so much potential for God’s Kingdom to come and bless all who live here.
