“and may the God of hope fill you with peace and joy, in believing, that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope,”
Christian grew up attending Edmond’s First Baptist Church. He accepted Christ as his Lord and Savior at the age of six, and was baptized shortly after.
In high school Christian pursued missions, but as a senior, he felt called into Children’s ministry while volunteering as a sponsor at CrossTimbers Summer Camp. He then began pursuing opportunities to serve and minister to children and their families. Christian has served as an intern under Charles Scheffe here at Edmond's First, at Quail Springs Baptist Church, and later was called to be the Children’s and Preschool Pastor at First Baptist Church Lawton. He followed the Lord’s call to move back to Edmond where he began serving as the Children’s Pastor.
Christian and his wife, Allison, met in China while serving in the mission field. She is a PE teacher at John Ross Elementary School and they now have a daughter, Parker. They are both excited to see how God will use them to grow and serve the children and families here as the Children’s Pastor.
