Christian grew up in Davis, California and spent his summers as a camper at Camp Hammer. At 12 years old, he put his faith in Christ at Camp Hammer and knew then that he wanted to be a part of the ministry that brought him to Christ. Starting at age 15, he worked five summers at Camp Hammer as a counselor and kitchen assistant.
When God called him into high school ministry, he spent three years as the High School Ministry Associate at Twin Lakes Church in Aptos, California, where he met his beautiful bride, Lacy. They were married January 9, 2009, and immediately packed their bags for Fresno to start the middle school ministry at The Well.
Christian is a graduate of Fresno Pacific University and he loves student ministries, rugby, movies, media, and local coffee shops.
