Chris Banther is a Bay Area native who graduated from the University of California, Berkeley where he received his Bachelor’s in applied mathematics and later went on to receive his Master’s in aerospace studies from the University of North Dakota. He began his career in the United States Air Force and now works full time as a subcontract program manager at Lockheed Martin. In 2009, Chris also decided to follow his entrepreneurial heart and started a real estate brokerage in Mountain View.
While it wasn’t until college that Chris first encountered the Lord, He had been preparing Chris’ compassionate, servant’s heart from a young age. Chris specifically has a heart for reaching those far from God and is passionate and excited about NBCC’s vision.
As God continues revealing more about Chris’ calling, he’s grateful to have an opportunity to launch, serve, and partner with NBCC. Chris, his wife Tonya and son Josiah enjoy serving together in a multitude of ministries, traveling and hiking.
