We are excited to welcome Pastor Chris Dunaway as settled pastor at MSBC!
Chris Dunaway is a native of Richmond, VA and was educated at Davidson College in Davidson,
NC. After several years as a carpenter with Habitat for Humanity, where he both built homes
and taught volunteer crews and homeowners how to build homes, he sensed a call to serve as a
full-time Christian pastor. Having recently completed a Master's degree at Gordon-Conwell
Theological Seminary in the North Shore of Boston, he and his wife, Jaime, hoped to remain in
New England, which quickly began to feel like home, according to Dunaway.
