As the Education & Training Director of Outreach to Asia Nationals (OTAN), Chris has served since 2010 and is leading OTAN in doing what others "Don't, Won't, and Can't." His vision is to disciple national leaders to create their own church planting movements through targeting the least-reached people groups within closed, restricted, and limited access countries. Chris has a heart for training theological missions leaders to engage Biblical truths in effective, innovative ways that will transform both individual lives and the global church.
Chris is also Professor of Biblical & Theological Studies and Global Studies at Liberty University School of Divinity in Lynchburg, VA, where he is actively serving as a bridge between theology and missions in the college-age generation. You can follow Chris on his blog at chrisgnanakan.com.
