Arthur diener

DIRECTOR OF CHILDREN'S MINISTRY

  • Place of birth: Kirkland, Wa
  • Year began at Christ's Church: 2012
  • Family info: My wife, Sarah, and I were married December 2012 and have two kids, Judah & Clara.
  • Education: Currently working on a degree in Biblical Studies

Personal Testimony: The Bible, church, and the gospel were a big part of my upbringing and I gave my life to the Lord when I was young. It was not long that my faith was tested and in high school I was challenged with making my faith truly my own. I dove into God’s Word in a new way and found a richness in my relationship with the Lord I had never experienced.

Ministry Passion(s): Working with kids! I love leading kids to discovering God’s truth for themselves, asking questions and watching the “light-bulb” turn on as they grasp God’s truth!

Hobbies/Leisure Time activities: I love reading, tinkering with computers and electronics, playing music, and cooking.

What makes me sad? glad? mad? 

  • Sad: It makes me sad when people believe the Gospel of Christ but fail in living out the life of joy that comes with being a hard-working, servant of God.  
  • Glad: Laughing with my wife and kids!
  • Mad: Mistreatment of children.
