Chris Webb was born in Kansas City, Missouri, but raised in rural western Kansas. He attended high school at Enterprise Academy in Enterprise, Kansas, and then continued his education at Union College in Lincoln, Nebraska. He began pursuing a major in Communications with a final goal of becoming a journalist, but after serving at Maxwell Academy in Nairobi, Kenya, as a student missionary assistant boys’ dean, Chris decided instead to pursue his real passion—teaching.
Within a week of returning to the United States, he changed his major to English Education, earning his diploma in May of 2009. He is now in the process of acquiring a Masters Degree in Educational Technology from Boise State University.
Chris and Lisa met at the wedding of a mutual friend in Denver, Colorado. Chris likes to brag about how when he met Lisa for the first time, he liked her so much that he immediately dropped everything, including the girl that he was dating, to pursue the woman he knew he would end up with. Lisa likes to respond to this by rolling her eyes.
Chris and Lisa dated exclusively over the phone for almost an entire year, seeing each other 4 times, until Chris persuaded Lisa to move from Chattanooga, Tennessee, to the bustling metropolis of Lincoln, Nebraska. They lived there for 2 more years before getting married July 12th, 2009.
Within one month of walking down the aisle, they left the United States and headed for Taipei, Taiwan, to teach at Taipei Adventist Preparatory Academy, a Seventh-day Adventist high school, where they are now in their 4th year of teaching.
