For over 20 years Chris has been testing, creating and practicing brain-based solutions to make relationships work. While Chris is highly motivated to develop practical resources, Chris enjoys spending time with Jen and their two sons, Matthew and Andrew. The Coursey’s enthusiastically pass on the skills they missed growing up to their sons.
In addition to building joy on the home front, Chris spends most of his time teaching, training, developing materials, fostering relationships, exercising and equipping God’s people to mature, so they live according to their faith and values.
Chris is a published author with seven books in print including his latest, Transforming Fellowship: 19 Brain Skills That Build Joyful Community which is now translated into Korean. Chris travels the world equipping couples, ministry leaders, and churches in relational brain skills.
