My name’s Chase and I’m a 1st-year Christ in the City missionary from Lincoln, NE.

What brought me to Christ in the City

I decided I wanted to become a missionary with Christ in the City by first realizing a desire to interact with the poor in my own city that I saw on a daily basis. Once I actually started to get to know them, I realized that God had placed a desire on my heart to grow in a more profound way, to come to know these people I would meet on the street, that for so much of my life, I had avoided or ignored out of discomfort. That desire turned into a small step of requesting an application for Christ in the City and needing to visit. Having visited, I then knew there was no other way I wanted to spend my next year!

What I’m looking forward to

As a missionary, I am most looking forward to growing to be the fullest version of myself while seeking to serve the Lord and help to reveal the worth of those I encounter.

A bit about me

I am a wannabe farmer, who ended up as an accountant. I love cooking and watching movies. I don’t have an athletic bone in my body. I have always had a structured plan for how my life should look, but have come to know that God has so much better plans!


everyone deserves
to be known & loved

If you join me in the mission as a monthly supporter, you will also become part of Known & Loved, Christ in the City’s monthly giving community! We are so grateful for our monthly supporters and their consistent generosity which makes it possible for us missionaries to be formed and reach out the homeless all year-long.
