Deacon Christopher Hall

Deacon Christopher Hall

Christopher Hall was born in late August of 1983 in Phoenix, Arizona. His parents taught him Christ in song and story from birth and he cannot recall a time when he did not know the Lord. He was baptized in a nondenominational baptistic church at seven. Shortly afterward, his family moved to a small town in northern Arizona, and he attended a Baptist grammar school. In his freshman year of high school he met his wife, Heather. In 2000, Christopher began his studies at the University of Arizona in biochemistry. While living in the dorms freshman year at university, another student invited him to the first meeting of RUF (Reformed University Fellowship). For the first semester, Christopher wrestled with the sovereign God. (Praise God, God won!) And he embraced the Reformed faith and tradition. In it, he found such depths as could not be plumbed and he marvels at the faithfulness of God to his people. He first regularly attended Desert Springs Presbyterian in the fall of 2001 and became a member shortly thereafter.

In June 2006, Christopher married his best friend, whom he'd known since age 13. In 2008 his firstborn son was born and baptized at Desert Springs Presbyterian. Recently, Heather gave birth to a daughter. Christopher was ordained a deacon in March 2011, a week after his daughter was baptized.

His interests include reading (particularly systematic and biblical theology and Church history), German-style boardgaming, and gardening. He blogs at Literary Ales as well as serializes lesser-known Reformed confessions. He is also the church librarian.
