Raised in El Paso, TX it was no time at all till Chris found himself in a lifestyle of drugs, alcohol, lust, and trouble. Not understanding why his dad slept at one house and his mom slept at another sent him on a search that landed him at church. It was here he was invited to youth camp in the summer of 1999. This is where everything changed, all in one night, Chris received the gift of salvation, experienced the baptism of the Holy Spirit, and was called into full-time ministry.
Chris Estrada is now a voice impacting generations. His roaring excitement and ability to address current issues with solid, life-changing truth makes him a dynamic communicator for everyone that hears him. He carries a mandate: to release courage and power into risk takers and dreamers who desire divine turn arounds. Chris passionately pursues ministering the gospel of Jesus Christ, developing leaders who want to transform society, and consulting organizations to have a strategic and lasting influence.
Being a former business owner, missionary, and pastor makes him a diverse resource. In addition to serving as the Director of the Youth Major at Christ For The Nations Institute, his lifestyle of excellence, honor, and revival led him to develop The Circle - a 12 month leadership and; character intensive for pastors, as well as host the National Youth Leader Experience - a leadership gathering attended by pastors and leaders from all over the world.
Chris attended Christ For The Nations Institute in Dallas, TX. Chris and his wife, Erica, are working on getting over their addiction to chai tea lattes and they have 3 children, Elisha, who loves baseball and frozen yogurt, Jasmine, who loves dressing like a princess while drinking chocolate milk, and Carissa, who will be taking her first steps soon.
