Chris Carmona was saved at Hillsong Church in Sydney, Australia at the age of 14. He started attending Hillsong Youth services and it was there where the call of ministry began to stir in his heart. In 2003, he enrolled in Bible college where Chris and Audrey met. Shortly after finishing Bible college, they got married and were selected to be a part of a launch team that would plant a church in the Gold Coast of Queensland, Australia. Chris and Audrey were a part of that church for 5 years. During that time, God began to press a call in their hearts to plant a church in Chicago.
With the blessing of their pastors and leaders, Chris and Audrey set out to plant People Church in Chicago in April of 2012 with the partnership and support of ARC. In early 2018, People Church expanded its vision and planted People Church in Toronto, Canada. Today, Chris and Audrey lead and serve as Senior Global Pastors of People Church, and are planted in the Chicago campus. They are parents to Cruz Pheonix, Madden Jax, Kingston Stone, and River Eve.
