Youth Pastor

Chris Fortner

Chris graduated from Pensacola Christian College in 2004 where he met his beautiful wife Tina, who is from Pittsboro, NC.  From Pensacola, God brought the two of them to Atlanta, Georgia, where Chris is originally from.  While in Georgia, he and his wife became Group Leaders at Georgia Baptist Children’s Home.  God led them from there to a program where Chris became a Journeyman Electrician in Atlanta.


When Chris and Tina first got married, they planned to return to North Carolina.  Finally, four kids and 15 years later, they moved to Goldston, NC in 2019.  Chris has a heart for Bonlee Baptist’s youth and seeks to strengthen their relationship with Christ.


Chris and Tina have been married for 19 years and have four boys and more animals than you would believe.  When Chris is not serving as Youth Pastor, he enjoys his full-time job, writing, leatherwork, archery, camping, and spending time with his family.
