Ministry Intern

Christian serves in a variety of ministry areas as a pastoral intern. He has completed his B.A. in pastoral ministry and Bible at the University of Northwestern - St. Paul, where he is currently working toward his Master of Divinity. He married his high school sweetheart Rachel, who is studying psychology at Northwestern.

Christian spent the majority of his childhood in Rochester, Minnesota, then lived in St. Petersburg, Florida for two years. Shortly after returning to Minnesota for college in 2014, he began attending GracePoint, where he has volunteered in the junior high and high school student ministries and leads CAYAC (College and Young Adult Community). Christian’s ministry experience lies primarily with youth and young adults, but he hopes to learn from and contribute to the full range of GracePoint’s members and ministries.

In his spare time, Christian enjoys hunting, fishing, kayaking, running, reading, listening to music, and playing sports of all kinds, as well as relaxing with Rachel and having good conversations with friends.
