Pastor Kris Freeman
Kris is the lead pastor and founding church planter for Revolution Church. He grew up in northern Sumner County and returned home to launch Revolution, and lives in White House with his wife Jennifer, and two children Madison and Noah. Kris and Jen have been married 21 years in 2019.
He is a marketing and business communications teacher at White House High School and serves as the school’s media coordinator and sports information director. Madison is a junior and a basketball player and part of the speech team, and Noah is a freshman tennis player and broadcaster for the Blue Devil Network. Jennifer is a payroll specialist for the Country Music Hall of Fame.
Kris serves as the public address announcer for Vanderbilt University men’s and women’s basketball and for TSSAA state championship events in football, baseball and basketball.
Kris has a B.A. in Management and Leadership from Trevecca Nazarene University and is completing his Masters in Education from Union University.
Growing up in the small community of New Deal – between Portland and White House – he has spent much of his life as a volunteer for community, sports and education. He is in his 25th year with White House High School. He received the White House Quarterback Club Award for community service in 2005, 2010, and 2012.
Kris served as the President of the White House Area Chamber of Commerce (2015) and has been presented with three press awards by the Tennessee Press Association and Tennessee Sports Writers Association for his work in media. He left journalism to pursue full-time ministry.
Pastor K has served as a church planter, senior pastor, associate and youth pastor and has served in missions in Jamaica, Niger (Africa) and locally with tornado relief to El Reno, OK. He announced his call to ministry in 1998 and is a graduate of Christian Training Institute in 2001 in Pastoral Ministries and also has a degree in communications after serving as a news and sports editor for Gannett Inc. and a broadcast journalist for Volunteer State College and WVCP-FM, where he met his wife.
He began in youth ministry at his home church, Halltown Church, before serving seven years in Kentucky as the senior pastor of Pleasant Union in Lewisburg, KY. He and his wife were certified through General Baptist National Missions and Church Planting Dynamics in 2009 to plant Revolution Church with full missions support. The church grew from launch to self-support and a permanent facility in 16 months.
He loves Vanderbilt, the St. Louis Cardinals and anything with white country sawmill gravy on it, except for lettuce which is gross. He is OCD, drinks after no one and always uses a new straw. And Kris hates the Cubs, which may not be Biblical, but knows that Jesus loves them in spite of his objections.
