Chris Degen is a worship leader, songwriter, musician and Pastor. From an early age Chris has had an intense hunger for the presence of God and seeing people impacted by God encounters. “I remember singing solos as a child and asking God don’t let this just be a song but let someone come to know You, find hope and healing, see the miraculous” That’s still his heart today. “God invade this room and touch your people, bring heaven to earth”.  

Born and raised in Lexington, Kentucky, Chris has mentored and impacted worship leaders across the nation with a passion for excellence and a relentless pursuit of His presence. 

He and his wife moved to Columbus, Ohio, from the Houston area early 2018 to join the HML team. Together they have 3 children Shaden, Alondra and Princeton Degen.
