Meet Our Director


Hi! My name is Chris Sturdivant, and I have served as the Area Director of CMDA Memphis since August 2023. I am a native of Memphis. I have been married for 5 years to my wonderful and beautiful wife, Jenna. We are grateful to be the parents of our precious 2-year-old daughter. Currently, we reside in the East Memphis area and are members of Eastside Community Church.

I graduated from the University of Memphis (2009) with a Bachelor of Education with a major in Human and Health Performance with a concentration in Exercise and Sports Science. After graduating, I attended Physical Therapy School at UTHSC in Memphis (2010). In December of 2010, I decided to change career paths and pursued full-time vocational ministry by accepting a college ministry job with Campus Outreach at The Village Church in Dallas/Fort Worth. For almost a decade, I worked in various ministry roles on multiple college campuses seeking to evangelize, establish, equip, and export hundreds of college students. In 2020, my wife and I moved to Memphis. Just prior to CMDA, I worked as a Pastoral Resident at Eastside Community Church in East Memphis. In December of 2023, I will graduate with a Master of Arts in Theological Studies.

I am passionate about discipleship and helping Christian professionals become further equipped to grow in their faith, live on mission, and make disciples. I'm excited to have the opportunity to serve healthcare professionals as they seek to integrate their faith with their practice. Join us as we bring hope and healing to the world through Christian healthcare professionals!
