Chris Queen

All Chris Queen wanted to be growing up was a game show host, a weather man, or James Bond. But his writing talent won out.

By day, Chris is a somewhat mild-mannered church communications director, but by night, he keeps his finger on the pulse of culture and writes about it. Chris’s interests include Disney, college sports — especially his beloved Georgia Bulldogs — and a wide variety of music.

A native of Marietta, GA, Chris moved with his family as a child to nearby Covington, GA, where he still makes his home. He is on staff at and a member of Eastridge Community Church and enjoys spending time with family and friends.

In addition to his work at The Resurgent, Chris writes regularly at PJ Media, and he spent nearly a year as a contributor to NewsReal Blog. He has also written for Celebrations Magazine and two newspapers in Metro Atlanta.
