We had the great opportunity to photograph Pastor Chris Bowman with the Manassas Church of the Brethren in order to add his photograph to the wall of the church that has all the Pastor’s before him as well. We took a couple shots typical headshot style, but they given the weather opted for a quick few shots outside and low and behold that is where our favorite one was captured!
Pastor Chris has served as Pastor of the Oakton Church of the Brethren since 2004 following pastorates in Pennsylvania and Illinois. He was ordained in 1987 and received degrees from Manchester College (1984), Bethany Theological Seminary (1987), and San Francisco Theological Seminary (1999). Bowman served on the worship planning team and delivered the message at the 2008 Annual Conference of Church of the Brethren celebrating the 300th anniversary of our denomination.He was also tapped to give the message for the Christmas Eve service broadcast nationally on CBS in 2004. In 2003-2004 Pastor Harris served as Moderator of the Church of the Brethren and presided over Annual Conference in Charleston, WVa. Chris has held numerous district and national positions in the Church of the Brethren including; 1993-1998 Church of the Brethren General Board (Chair, 97-98).
His congregation simply loves him and is pleased to have him, based off this image alone I think the feeling is mutual!
