Pastor Christian and his family come to Bakerstown Alliance from Syracuse, NY.  A graduate of Nyack College and Gordon-Conwell, Christian earned his doctorate studying the ministry and thought of Jonathan Edwards (Ph.D. Union Presbyterian Seminary).  He has been involved in ministry as a youth pastor, Army Chaplain (reserves), Christian school teacher, and Chaplain for many of the Kenyan Olympic runners.  Besides his unfortunate addiction to books, he spends most of his spare time coaching distance runners, planning his next overseas adventure, extolling the virtues of the Boston Red Sox, and unsuccessfully attempting to get his wife to laugh at his jokes.


He has been married to his wife, Melissa, for 16 years with three children: Caroline, Ceilidh (kay-lee), and Calvin.

Bakerstown Alliance is a church with a rich history and an even more exciting future.  We seek to join with centuries of Christians who have committed themselves to a life of bringing glory to God and delighting in Christ.  We believe that Jesus actually walked the earth, died on the cross and rose from the dead to initiate a relationship with us individually and as a community.  Jesus was not merely an historical figure--he lives today and continues to lead and feed His people.
