Youth Pastor


Chris Kaczmarek, our Student Ministries & Missions Pastor was born in Elmhurst, Illinois, but grew up in Phoenix, Arizona, while his wife Staci grew up in Shipshewana, Indiana.  They met in college at Anderson University where Chris majored in Bible and Religion while Staci majored in Nursing.  After being married for 2 years God called them to the mission field in Kampala Uganda to work with an organization called Sixty Feet.  After that time they moved back to Indiana to serve us at SMDCOG.  Chris is a huge sports fan, just stop by his office and you can see he is a Cubs and Bears fan.  Staci loves to bake for people.  She is an amazing cake decorator!  Chris and Staci both have a passion for both student ministry and mission.
