Chris Werner

Chris Werner has been the director of music ministries at BPC since the summer of 2005.  He loves to worship Jesus and has a passion for leading people in worship, hoping to draw them deeper into a relationship with Christ.  Chris also organizes the church’s small group progam.  Chris has a music education degree from Augustana College, Rock Island and hails from Davenport.

Chris met his wife, Janna, while in college and they married following their graduation.  They reside in Davenport with their two wonderful children, Addison and Elijah.

He taught in the Davenport public schools for two years before accepting the call to ministry, and is grateful for the opportunity to serve the church.  At BPC Chris directs the chancel choir, praise bands, children’s choirs and other music groups seasonally.  He also organizes and implements the community gathering Praise on the River.  One of Chris’ favorite activities is leading a small group Bible study on Tuesday nights.

Outside of work Chris enjoys golfing, hiking and camping.  He’s an avid Bears and Cubs fan, and if you come by his office during the day you’ll often hear sports radio playing so he gets the latest updates on his teams.
