Note: This is a new series of posts aimed at helping you get to know your church staff in a more personal way. We hope you enjoy!

If you’ve seen a new face around the hallways, your eyes are not deceiving you. We welcomed Michael Christian to the building support staff in April.

Where are you from and where have you lived? What are your family roots?

I was born in Richmond, and have lived in several different places including Hawaii, North Carolina, and South Carolina. I have two brothers. My older brother lives in Maryland and my younger brother passed away 15 years ago.

Where else have you worked?

After being honorably discharged from the Marine Corps I have had too many jobs to count. Most recently I worked for Golden Gate Services.

What are you happiest doing when you aren’t working?

For fun I enjoy cycling and reading. Currently I am reading a book on physics by Michio Kaku.

What do you like most about your work at River Road Church?

What I like most about River Road Church is interacting with the wonderful members of the Church. I look forward to coming to work each day and making sure our facilities are in beautiful shape for your ministry.
