Chris Shook, along with her husband, Kerry, founded Woodlands Church outside of Houston, Texas, in 1993. Since then the multicampus church has grown to an attendance of more than 18,000 people and is recognized for its ministries to the poor and powerless. Woodlands Church also has one of the largest fair-trade/direct-trade stores in the country, with the goal of lifting generations out of poverty by empowering their lives with hope. Thousands of people in more than two hundred countries tune in weekly to Pastor Kerry’s televised broadcasts. The Shooks’ first book, One Month to Live, is a New York Times bestseller. Kerry and Chris have been married for more than thirty years and have four grown children.
