Christopher's joy and calling is to strengthen, encourage and comfort the Body of Christ (1 Cor. 14:3) and to help people of all generations come to see the greatness of God.
Born and raised in the Philly suburbs, Christopher and his college sweetheart, Jeannie, currently reside in Exton, PA with their three adult children. In 1988 they were blessed with a special needs daughter who was unable to walk, talk, or eat--except through a tube. Amanda's brief 15 years on this earth taught Christopher much about God's love, sovereignty, and what matters most. Her profound impact on his life caused him to worship Christ like he never had before, and inspired him to write songs that flowed from a grateful, broken heart.
In order to comfort others with the comfort he and his family received (2 Cor. 1: 3-4), Christopher answered the call to full-time music ministry in 1995 and founded Blessed Hurricane Ministries, a concert and worship ministry which has taken him to churches, camps and conferences all around the world. As a musical missionary with The WordFM, Christopher leads worship for various functions of the radio station including local and global missions trips. This year (2016) they will be serving in Huaycán, Peru, working in partnership with Peru Hope to help improve the standard of living for families in extreme poverty, with special emphasis on desertion and the welfare of children.
Whether leading 80,000 in worship at Creation Festival ('04 & '05) or a handful of missionaries and families in remote places with the WordFM, his contagious passion for making much of Christ remains the same. Having also served ten years as a pastor of worship, he enjoys coaching worship leaders and their teams, helping churches in transition.
Christopher has recently been assisting a number of churches with their worship ministries, including Calvary Chapel of Delta (Delta, PA), Goshen Baptist Church (West Chester, PA) and Brandywine Valley Baptist Church (Wilmington, DE). His songs can be heard on his own indie projects as well as on major label recordings by Integrity Music, Maranatha! Music, CFNI Music, and Sovereign Grace Music.
