globalLead Executive Director

The founder and current globalLead Executive Director, Dr. Chris Davis, is an experienced pastor, Christian leader, and youth pastor with over 30 years invested in ministry. Chris has worked in churches ranging from 100 to over 2200 in attendance, along with several years of experience in para-church youth ministries.

Chris has a Doctor of Educational Ministry emphasizing Biblical Spirituality and Biblical Counseling and a Master’s degree in Christian Education. He mixes academic credentials with practical experience in his passion for serving and mobilizing leaders and trainers to lead themselves, their families, and those in ministry. He founded globalLead International in 1996, where he and the globalLead staff have trained over 28,000 ministry leaders from 50 countries on five continents

Chris does the above through personal mentoring and providing soul care leadership conferences for all Christian leaders (see Heart of the Leader). Chris, along with the globalLead staff, have also written several resource books on ministry including, “Basic Training Discipleship” and “Connection Points” for leaders and “Foundations for Life,” a discipleship resource for youth and adults.

Caring for his family, Penny and Levi, playing and watching sports, reading, roasting coffee, and crocheting are some of Chris’ interests outside of the ministry.
