Favorite Core Value: Create an Extraordinary Impact

Christopher Barron, Executive Vice President and Chief Information Officer, joined EMF Broadcasting’s K-LOVE and Air1 Radio Networks in 2018. He holds a B.S. in Engineering from the University of Idaho and two post-graduate degrees: an M.B.A. from Phoenix University and an M.Sc. in Management and Systems from New York University.

Mr. Barron started his career as an engineer, which was a great foundation for his migration into technology. He has enjoyed leadership roles and pushing himself to the limits of what can be accomplished, and says:

“One of the greatest joys that I’ve found is in taking paths that other people may not tread, knowing that I would have to stretch and reach further. The best fruit is always on the top of the tree.”

Mr. Barron brings more than twenty-two years of experience to K-LOVE and Air1. Recently, he started praying for the Lord to place him in a job where he could use his talents to further God’s work.

“I’ve never been more thankful to be at a place ... I feel the call to pour myself out for this ministry; because I believe it has an incredible impact.”

He leads the following team(s) of ministry professionals:

  • Enterprise Applications
  • Cyber Security
  • Infrastructure
  • Service Excellence
  • Studio Technology
  • Media Delivery
  • Technology Innovation

Mr. Barron and his wife, Rosa, live in Northern California with their three children Alexander, Isabella and Orion. As a family, they enjoy traveling and look forward to visiting Mr. Barron's ancestral homelands in Switzerland, someday.
