On any given day you will find 20-year-old Christian Marvin wearing his HGA denim jacket, with a  group of friends, listening music way too loud. He brings the hype to any gathering, slipping in secret handshakes, sharing hilarious stories, and spitting crazy bars. Though Christian is known as the “life of the party” his story goes far beyond this label. His resilient joy has grown from the deepest pain.

Raised in Pensacola, Florida by a military family Christian did not meet his father until he was eight years old. Enduring this along with the devastation of his parents separation brought him to a dark season in his life where battled addictions and engaged in a dangerous self destructive lifestyle. Yet, God has been with him through it all.

Revelations 12:11 speaks about how there is power, paired with the blood of the Lamb, in the words of our testimony. Pastor Mark Batterson writes in his book Draw the Circle, that when we listen to a testimony we borrow faith from others. In this candid Christian is beyond generous in sharing his faith. From near death to living a bold life for Christ, his testimony is one we need to hear over and over again. It all points to JESUS!

We also hit on the topics of battle rapping, his epic sneaker game, and heart for the local church, obviously…it’s FPC.

Christian is a close and dear friends to my husband, Chris and I. We believe in all he is committed to and I cannot wait for you to listen to this episode, it has easily become one of my favorites.

Get strapped in guys…
