Chris Gardner's life has been a remarkable journey of faith, service, and a strong desire to make a positive impact on the world. When Chris was 11, his parents felt called to be missionaries overseas. This experience shaped his worldview and appreciation for different cultures.

As a young man, Chris's leadership qualities shone through when he began pastoring a church in Peru at age 18. Under his guidance, the church grew rapidly, both locally and by starting three more churches within 18 months. Chris went on to serve as a missionary in Peru for nearly 20 years, overseeing the founding of dozens of churches, a TV station, a radio station, and businesses.

In 1996, Chris married Andria, and they have four children. The couple adopted their first two kids and later had two more. When their son Joshua was born with a cleft lip and palate, the family returned to the US so he could get the medical care he needed.Today, Chris works as a wealth and philanthropic strategist, helping high-net-worth individuals use their resources to make a difference. His personal goal is to see $1 billion invested in initiatives that create positive change.
