Lead Pastor of Blackhawk Brader Way
Originally from Waunakee, WI, Chris met his wife, Amy at the University of Wisconsin-Madison where he received degrees in religious studies and political science. Before joining Blackhawk staff, the Kopps spent six years in Denver, CO where Chris earned a Master of Divinity degree from Denver Seminary and served as a pastor in two local churches. In 2018, they moved back to Madison and Chris joined Blackhawk Worship Arts staff. In 2021, Chris began to serve as Lead Pastor of Blackhawk Brader Way.
Chris and Amy have two kids, Adalie and Micah, and a golden retriever named Maddie. When they’re not out walking around the neighborhood, at a park, or watching Doc McStuffins, Chris enjoys following Wisconsin sports, trying to keep up on Greek grammar, reading, writing, mountains, and music.
