CJ grew up in Colorado all of his life before moving to Chicago to study at Moody Bible Institute. There he studied the Bible, was immersed in theological studies, and was further equipped for relational ministry. He received his B.A. in Biblical Studies from Moody and is now currently pursuing his M.A. in Counseling Psychology at The Seattle School of Theology and Psychology.

He and his wife, Lindsey, met in Israel and have a united passion for being involved in relational ministry alongside those who have experienced trauma and difficult circumstances in their lives. Together they love to do anything that involves the great outdoors - from camping, to backpacking, to hiking, and everything in between. CJ feels beyond blessed to be a part of such an incredible ministry and program. Go Broncos!
