I am committed to Jesus Christ for the rest of my life because he rescued and delivered me from the life I had made apart from Him. From the beginning, God brought me on a path of discipleship by His Word, as pastors and mature Christians took me under their wings and discipled me. Because of the work of God in my life, I have been convinced of the sufficiency of God’s Word for meeting the needs of humankind, as well as God’s plan to use the body of Christ as Biblical Counselors. I thank God for His faithfulness in my life, enabling me to serve Him and His people in ministry. A special thanks to God for my wife, Jennie, who for over 24 years, has been the primary instrument of His counsel in my life. 

Also, special gratitude is offered to the Lord for my spiritual father, Pastor Bob Hoekstra of the Living in Christ Ministries, who encouraged me greatly in the ministry. He mentored me until he went home to be with the Lord in October 2011.

My approach to ministry is that of a pastor, for the equipping of others for the work of the ministry and for growing into the stature of the fullness of Christ. My primary desire is to explore the word of God on these great matters of counseling, discipleship, and personal ministry. I invite you to connect with me online or in person at our next event to fellowship. I am here to serve you!

I am a grateful husband; applauding dad; indebted worshiper; online course creator; and the blessed pastor of the remarkable folks at Calvary Glenwood Springs, Colorado.  

I graduated with a bachelor’s degree from Calvary Chapel Bible College and a Master of Arts in Theology from Faith International University & Seminary.

May the Lord Jesus use this website and the International Association of Biblical Counselors to enlarge our vision of Him as our Wonderful Counselor (Isaiah 9:6).

Much Love to All - -

Serving with You, for God’s Glory, by His Grace,

Jeff Christianson
