About Chris Giddens

In a nutshell...

I’m a native Texan who loves technology, gets excited about solving problems and experiences life in partnership with the Holy Spirit. I’m married to the love of my life and best friend, Stephanie. We have two teenage daughters, Delaney & Averie, and live in Austin, TX.

When I was younger, one of my favorite movies was The Matrix. There’s a scene when Trinity jumps into a helicopter and doesn’t know how to fly it. She then gets an immediate download from her operator with the necessary knowledge on how to fly aircraft. This flow of knowledge reflects how I tend to figure things out with the Holy Spirit. It’s from this place that I write, create and design solutions for whatever is thrown at me.

On the professional side, I spent 5 years working as a software developer and then in management for another 5 years, all for a great company that served the financial needs of the military and their families. And then God took us on a whirlwind tour. We left our lives in San Antonio, moved to Australia and finally landed in Austin a year later. It was a tour that challenged our faith, drew us closer as a family and instilled us a calling to build His kingdom.

Today, we’re both in leadership at Bethel Austin, a thriving and growing church in Austin whose mandate is to passionately pursue the Presence of God. We love building community and seeing people step into who they’re called to be, regardless of their past or present situation.
