Chris Canfield

I am originally from Syracuse, NY, and currently live in Webster, NY, with my wife, Ruth, and our two daughters, Eliana and Selah. Throughout the years, my family and I have had the privilege and joy of serving in our local church in the Worship Ministry, Sunday School Ministry, and Home Fellowship.

I enjoy gardening, lap swimming, playing guitar, singing, reading, and traveling. I also enjoy watching my daughters play sports like soccer and ultimate frisbee. More than anything, I love the time spent with my family!
