Growing up in the Ichthus Christian Fellowship as the son of Roger and Faith Forster, he is a second-generation leader, pastor and teacher. Christen has planted churches, mobilised youth teams, led congregations and served in mission contexts in the UK and overseas. He also has seven years valuable experience as an I.T. Consultant.
Christen Forster is widely recognised as an original Bible teacher who brings people into a love of and confidence in scripture. In 2012 Christen decided to start regularly teach on how Jesus was uniquely presented by every book of both the Old and New Testaments. It was a subject that had dominated his personal Bible reading and study for over twenty years and its fruit was a hallmark of his fresh, non-religious teaching style. The Bible lives when we see Christ in its pages: Jesus is the logic that makes sense of different literary styles, languages, perspectives and contexts of scripture.
Christen is married to Judith and has three adult children. In his spare time he reads, plays bridge, cycles, enjoys theatre and film and spending time with his family.
