He is also a regular columnist with the United Methodist Reporter. In addition, Chris writes for the Daily Bible Study curriculum of the United Methodist Publishing House. His book on the Wesleyan ethic of love and justice bears the title, Doing Good: A Grace-Filled Approach to Holiness. His current research explores the relationship between antebellum moral philosophy or philosophical ethics and the antislavery movement. Recently, Chris has been appointed to leadership among the National Council of Churches.

For several years, Dr. Momany has combined his research and teaching with a concern for human trafficking. Today it is estimated that 27 million people are held as slaves throughout the world. Chris has been a national leader among college and church professionals in confronting this issue.
