west isle team

The staff and leadership here at West Isle Presbyterian Church is comprised of men and women who love, care, and pray for every single person in the church.

  • Chris Bower


    Born and raised in Mississippi, Chris was eighteen years old when he sensed a call to ministry. Since then, he has lived and ministered in 10 US states, 2 foreign countries, and has led mission teams in other parts of the US and the world. Chris is amazed by the love of Jesus, loves engaging others in a relationship with Christ, and is devoted to his family.

    Chris and his wife, Krista, are blessed with 3 beautiful children: Roman, Graeme, and Elise. The Bower family moved to Galveston just this August 2020. They feel so blessed to be a part of the West Isle family, love Galveston, and look forward to investing in the community.
