As she is known affectionately within C3, “Momma Chris” is a mother, wife, author, friend and incredible communicator who has been active in ministry for over 30 years. Chris is mother to Bek (married to Matt), Dan (married to Leah), and Joe and Nanna to Finn, Sonny, Rooney Bea and Goldie Jean and wife to Phil for 40+ years.
With kids in tow and a few good friends, Phil and Chris moved from New Zealand to Sydney with a dream to see God’s church built. Phil and Chris were high school sweethearts and have walked the entirety of their Christian journey together – from living in a hippie commune to finding Christ in a small Pentecostal church in Christchurch, New Zealand. They married shortly after and have been sharing God’s love and healing powers ever since. Planting the first Christian City Church – as it was known then – on the Northern Beaches of Sydney in 1980, the Pringles now oversee 320 C3 Churches around the globe, ministering to 80,000 people each week.
