Wayne Chasteen answered the call of ministry in 1985 and was a full time pastor for ten years. In 1996, he founded the evangelistic ministry Rhyme and Reason.
Today Wayne is a highly sought after Bible conference speaker and evangelist. He and his music team, Rhyme & Reason, travel extensively around the world singing and sharing the message of Christ. In 2001 Rhyme & Reason became Artist Associates with the Christian humanitarian organization, World Vision. Since that time, the ministry of Rhyme & Reason has affected more than 25,000 lives around the world through procurement of child sponsorships.
In 2012, Wayne Chasteen and Rhyme & Reason once again answered the call of God to expand their ministry adding CHRIST FIRST CHURCH to their ministry effort. Together, Rhyme & Reason, World Vision, and Christ First Church have the potential to effect change in the world through the work and help of the Holy Spirit.
