Bearing Much Fruit

Jesus said, “If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit.” What does that mean?  Are you bearing “much fruit” in your life?  Two pastors grapple with a new vision of what bearing fruit is all about.  It’s a conversation we had several years ago that’s still ringing in hearts.  Don’t miss the challenge and encouragement you’ll hear on this encore episode of Chris Fabry Live.​​​

Chris began to seriously follow the Lord when he was 18 years old and a senior at Palatine High School in Palatine, IL. After a few years at a community college, Chris felt called to understand his new beliefs more deeply and entered Biblical Studies at Trinity International University in Deerfield IL. As he was completing his education, Chris married Krista and the two felt called to move to Mexico to work in a cafe student outreach. While in Mexico, Chris and Krista saw how many people were migrating to the U.S. and became convicted to move to Chicago largest Mexican neighborhood, Little Village. They have been living, working, and serving with New Life in the Little Village neighborhood for the last 7 years. Krista is a school teacher in the neighborhood and Pastor Chris is currently leading the congregation at Little Village Karlov.
