Chris Deckert

Director of Language Strategies at Jesus Film Project

Chris came to Christ through Cru his freshman year at Virginia Tech. But it was during grad school that he felt a tug on his heart to reach the nations––specifically those who have never heard the gospel. After learning about the JESUS film at a Christmas conference, Chris decided to use his computer mapping degree to map out the trajectory of the gospel in unreached places for Jesus Film Project and other ministries, like Finishing the Task and StoryRunners®. Chris has been on staff with Jesus Film Project since 1994, but he’s worked directly with the Script Translation Strategies team since 2013. Prior to directing the Language Strategies team, Chris also led the Translation team.
