Pastor Chris & Lauren Powell

Chris & Lauren moved to Haven in May of 2019 with their three foster children. Many things have changed in the 2 years they have lived in Haven! One of the biggest changes is that the Powell's no longer have foster children! We were blessed to adopt our three kids in October of 2020. Baby Porter, the newest addition to the Powell household, was born on February 3rd, 2023. We feel very blessed and fortunate to have such a wonderful family. (Children Left to Right: Deacon, Porter, Everett & Starr)


Chris enjoys all things Kansas City Chiefs, coffee, a good piece of meat, and his family and cruising around the big city of Haven on his golf cart.


Lauren loves her family, a good blanket, and teaching at Haven Middle and High School.


The Powell's feel very blessed to live in Haven, to attend Haven Schools, and to be a part of the growing ministry at Haven Baptist Church! We look forward to many more years of wonderful ministry in the Haven community.
