Chris Tomlin

Biography

Chris Tomlin Quote:

“The essence of what I believe the love of Christ is is that He became everything that separates from the love of God. He became our sin; he became all of the injustice in the world. He took on all of the anger, all of the adultery, all of the jealousy, all of the rage, all of the cheating and the lying, all of the stealing, the murder, the coveting … everything … he took it all on himself and he became that in our place so that we could be made right with God.”

Chris Tomlin was born in east Texas on May 4, 1972, and he grew up listening to country music by bands like Alabama. His dad taught him to play guitar and he wrote his first song at the age of 14. Saved as a child, he always knew that God had a specific plan for him, but he couldn’t see what that was beyond following the Lord. He finished high school and enrolled in college, graduating with a degree in Psychology. It was at that point that he started spending a lot of time with Passion founder, Louie Giglio. He took a big step of faith and became involved in the first Passion conference in 1997. The rest, as they say, is history.
