Chris Turner

Chris Turner is the communications director for the Tennessee Baptist Mission Board. It was quite a 25-journey to get there. Although his aspiration in life was to either be the Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s beat writer for the Atlanta Braves or a presidential speech writer, the Lord had other plans. Chris migrated from sports writer, to overseas correspondent living in Panama, and then to overseas communications director for the International Mission Board while living in England. He then went on to serve for seven years as media relations manager at LifeWay Christian Resources. He loves baseball, Formula1 racing, obstacle course racing, and sitting in the garage drinking coffee with his golden retriever, Dakota (although Dakota doesn’t drink coffee; he just lays there while Chris does). However, the two of them would both prefer sitting on the porch of a cabin at a secluded mountain lake. Chris, his wife, Michelle, and daughter, Madison, live in Franklin, Tennessee.
