Christian was born and raised in San Antonio Texas and attended Texas State University where he earned a Bachelors of Music and went on to attend Dallas Theological Seminary where he earned a Masters Degree in Biblical and Theological studies. Christian’s heart longs to see those who don’t know God come to know him and for the image of God illustrated in Christ to be fully formed in himself and every believer. Christian came to know Christ at an early age through the ministry of his parents and has served the body of Christ in different capacities including: Small Group Leader, Musician, Music Director, and as a Youth Minister. Although he has served in many roles Christian particularly enjoys being able to express himself through his creative gifts including music, video and film production. In May 2020, Christian founded the Record Label Matheten Music and began releasing music under the name “Matheten” which means “Disciple”. Through music and film, Christian desires to “Inspire Love and Express Truth” as a way to shine the light of God within him. When he is not recording music, writing a song, or editing a video he enjoys playing basketball, watching sports, movies, and building community with family and friends. Christian currently serves Family Life Austin as Productions Team Lead.
