Chris Leingang

The desire to be a teacher was birthed in Chris Leingang during his 8th grade year. After graduating high school, Chris entered college with that desire still burning inside. In 1996, Chris graduated from Portland State University with a B.S. in Science with an emphasis in Chemistry and Physics and then went on to graduate from Concordia University, Portland with an M.A.T. in Secondary Education in 1998.

Mr. Leingang's teaching experience spans both middle school and high school in both the private and public sector. He has had the opportunity to teach a wide variety of subjects including General Science, Physical Science, Chemistry, Physics, Forensic Anatomy and American Government. Chris was later called into full-time Christian ministry with Lutheran Brethren Youth Ministries, where he led teams of young adults as they worked in church-planting and outreach.

Mr. Leingang's passion for teaching had not left but had been refocused on ministry, missiology and church leadership. As with most teachers, his passion for teaching is coupled with a passion for learning. Hence, it was no surprise, when in 2002, he enrolled in seminary.
