Christian has a heart to see people understand the revelation of God’s Love that has already been released to the world. In recognition of Called to Flag’s statement from 1 John 3:1 “See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are!” (NIV), Christian sees a direct connection to this Love understood in 1 John 4:10 “This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.”
You are a new creation, and have been born by Spirit. This revelation changes the way we see ourselves and allows us to fully dive into Love, and win in the battle for our hearts.
Christian was born to be a follower of Christ. His life verse has always been John 10:4 - “When he has brought out all his own, he goes on ahead of them, and his sheep follow him because they know his voice.” The goal of relationship with Christ - to become familiar with His voice.
Residing in Redding, CA, Christian joined Saara Taina on the first all-male dance team while studying in BSSM, at Bethel Church. Dance was a group-setting, focused on community, sensing His Presence, and being comfortable dancing in front of people, on or off stage.
Without the high-end tools that had yet to be developed by Called to Flag, silk scarves, free-worship, and using the body as an instrument was the beginning of his journey of dance. Without any agenda or specific plan except to simply worship with laser-like focus on God and follow His leading, Christian and his team would venture on stage during worship sessions, or into the city during regular day hours. When possible, opportunities to pray for people, pray for healing, or lead viewers in experiencing dance themselves were taken; God proved His character of Love over and over again in multiple ways.
Among many other events, a new outlet for dance called the Healing Rooms opened up. Each Saturday morning was a day to dance and pray for people to be healed; the dancers partnered with the prayers as they invited the Holy Spirit to move and see restrictions removed, illness disappear, as well as spiritual, emotional, and physical healing take place.
After 3 years of schooling, Christian transitioned out of school when he joined a ministry trip back to Canada.
He led the music and dance workshops in the Creativity Conference at the River Community Church in Abbotsford, BC. His first class was called "DUI" (Dancing Under the Influence), which is offered today.
Christian has been employed by Called to Flag since 2016, whose heart is to broadcast the message of identity in Christ and Sonship culture to people through online services and courses. Through training and technique and time, Christian has become key in expanding the world's most impactful dance ministry.
Christian now resides in Abbotsford, BC, and offers dance training and technique classes one-on-one, as well as group-setting introductions to flagging, among pursuing other forms of dance.
