About My Family

Christopher is passionate about the gospel of Jesus Christ. Jesus saved him right after high school, and he has made it his personal life mission to further delight in and declare and display the gospel to those around him. For the last few years, he served as the associate pastor of worship in Woodland Park, Colo. Though he absolutely loved doing ministry in Colorado, he increasingly sensed a calling to plant a church in St. Paul. After over two years of prayer and discernment, Christopher believes the time to plant is now.

Christopher loves his family. He and his wife, Alex, have been married for just over four years. They have one son, Haddon, who is the joy of their home. Christopher’s dream day would include a long run, a good book, fresh sushi, half a cheesecake and lots of time with his family.

About My Church Plant

We are planting Vertical Church St. Paul. Our mission is to glorify God by making disciples of Jesus Christ. We will seek to do that through the passionate worship of Jesus Christ, the faithful preaching of God’s Word, the fervent prayers of God’s people and the bold proclamation of the gospel of Jesus Christ

NAMB Church Planting

Demonstrated Christian character is essential for missionaries and chaplains to gain credibility and build community. A missionary is a person who, in response to God's call and gifting, leaves his or her comfort zone and crosses cultural, geographic or other barriers to proclaim the gospel and live out a Christian witness in obedience to the Great Commission. The North American Mission Board supports missionaries serving across the United States, Canada and their territories. Churches are the missionary incubators and sending centers for missionaries through the Southern Baptist Convention. Missionaries serve in a variety of settings and face tremendous challenges. But the rewards are tremendous and life-changing. Missionaries have the privilege to represent their church and their Father in sharing the gospel as the primary focus of their activity. If you are interested in pursuing next steps as a potential missionary or chaplain from your church, explore the possibilities at


For churches as they prepare to send out missionaries and chaplains to push back lostness in North America. For receptive hearts among the people in communities where these missionaries and chaplains will serve. For churches and individuals to partner with missionaries and chaplains and to give of their time and talents. For the Father to send more workers into His harvest to join these missionaries.


Connect as a Sending Church or a Supporting Church with a missionary’s work. Commit to long-term missions support with your missionary partner. Be involved in supporting missionaries and their families. Pray for missionaries.
Many missionaries build a team to join their ministry in prayer, participation, and provision. These friends, family and churches support missionaries beyond the tithes and offerings given within the church plant. Visit for NAMB's policy on providing for church plants.
