Chris grew up watching his family quietly crediting God in their lives, but had never really connected Jesus with his own life. He first understood the love of Jesus on a late night Alpha TV documentary after a 6th form party.
Having become a Christian but not really changed much, his Brother prayed hard (unbeknown to him) for his time at Bristol University, where he spent 4 enjoyable years studying Physics and Philosophy and meeting Christians who actually loved Jesus as more than an add on. A CU houseparty on “holiness” turned his life upside down as he saw the whole bible opening up the simple problem of being a sinner before a holy God, and how far Jesus had come to save him.
After graduating, he spent a year as a “Relay” worker in Lancaster, when things he’d heard in theory became realities he enjoyed, before working with IFES in Belgium, resourcing the tiny GBU movement there. The combination of extremely enjoyable beer with the stark needs in French speaking Europe (a spiritual desert just 2 hours from London) may take him back one day…
Meantime, Chris spent the last year studying at the Oxford Centre for Christian Apologetics (theocca.org), and would love to help students understand and carry the gospel everywhere, into everything they do, in a way that makes sense. He’s a bit of a geek, and loves music that can move people all by itself.
