 On Sunday, Jan. 18, the congregation of Christ Presbyterian Church, a church plant of the Presbyterian Church in America and first ever in Mansfield, witnessed the installation of its new Lead Pastor, Chris Gensheer.

Gensheer and his family comes to the church from Santa Fe, N.M. and "have already experienced a renewed sense of vision and purpose for the church, the community of Mansfield, Tarrant County, and beyond."

Dr. and Rev. Paul Fowler preached a sermon and charged the new lead pastor "to remember his primary calling of being a child of God and to equip the members for the work of ministry, a message that clearly resonates with the new pastor."

“Chris is very passionate about seeing everyone live out their calling before God and their neighbors,” said one member of the church. “In his preaching and ministry already, he has inspired us to simply love and serve our neighbors, to reach out and initiate friendships and seek to bless others with the love of God.”

With many new residents flocking to the flourishing area, the church hopes to offer friendship and hospitality to everyone, but especially those moving into the area and away from their support systems.

Gensheer said he wants the church to be multi-generational.

"We may be meeting in a cafeteria right now, but soon we will have a place to call home," he said. "Until then, we will continue to reach out and be hospitable with everything we have, and watch God do great things in us and through us for the next 200 years."

The church currently meets Sundays at 10 a.m. at Asa Low Intermediate School, at the corner of Walnut Creek and Debbie Lane in Mansfield. All are welcome. For more information go to or call Lead Pastor Chris Gensheer at 682-235-4383.
