Chris Lazo

Lead Pastor

Chris is the leading pastor of Reality Santa Barbara, directing the church through preaching, vision, and overseeing the staff.

Chris has lived in Santa Barbara since 2004, when he first moved here to go to school. After (reluctantly) attending Reality, Chris experienced a powerful conversion of his heart by God, and hasn’t left the church since! He is married to Brianna (who he also met at church through a powerful conversion experience), and together, they have two kids, Abigail and Jude.

Director of Operations

Allen oversees the major operations of the church, especially teams and Home Groups, which are a part of our pathway of apprenticeship. Allen is married to Janine, and together have three grown humans.

Fun facts: He is the CEO of a communications company, and helped win a championship for USC as an offensive lineman. Today, instead of pummelling people, Allen propels them. You can often find Allen outside by the connect table.

When she’s not working with kids, she is a (full time) marriage and family therapist. She’s married to Ryan who works in the medical industry, and they both have a dog named Rue.
