Biography

Chris Oberg Senior Pastor - La Sierra University Church
My name is Chris Oberg, and church matters to me! It seems like we have a couple of options when thinking about organized religion in 2009. We can complain and grumble and jump ship. Or we can roll up our sleeves and attempt to make it better. I’m of the latter conviction and this is why I’m serving at La Sierra University Church. I first joined the Pastoral Team in 2000 as Pastor for Children and Families. Five years later my family moved to the Calimesa Church so I could take the responsibility of Senior Pastor. And in 2009, we are back at La Sierra. What brought us back? Largely the opportunity to work among the next generations with a conviction that the Christian life expressed through Adventist grace-driven priorities is worth pursuing and living. My primary responsibilities at La Sierra UniversityC are Preaching/Teaching Ministry, Crisis Visitation, Strategic Visioning, and Leadership Development. I must say that the Preaching Ministry is a sacred and treasured priority. The sacred scriptures are clear and comforting, yet also confusing and challenging. Hearing a Word on target for our lives today is what I hope for each time we open the Bible together. It is especially rewarding to serve at the campus church of my alma mater. I’m a double alumnus of La Sierra University, and daily live in a grateful awareness of how this University shapes my life. My husband, Kerby, is a Physician-Scientist at Loma Linda University, where he teaches, runs a research laboratory, and collaborates on all sorts of projects interested in congenital anomalies and birth defects. Amanda and Alisa are both college-age. Amanda is studying Business, and Alisa is studying Psychology. We are the kind of parents who intend on following our daughters around along time saying, “Those are our kids!” Yes, we apologize to our children regularly that they got us for parents… I expect you to email or phone when in crisis or to report someone else in crisis. I expect you will communicate openly and regularly. I expect to learn from you as we attempt to be a church on the corner God recognizes and uses. Oh, and I expect we’ll have a lot of fun along the way.
