In order to avoid the deplorable lack of honesty, integrity, and accountability which “internet anonymity” so conveniently affords, the author of the articles on Serious Christianity wishes to introduce himself:

Christian McShaffrey was raised as a nominal Roman Catholic, converted to Christianity at the age of 21, and was called to serve as an Evangelist of the Orthodox Presbyterian Church after graduating from Mid-America Reformed Seminary (Dyer, IN) in 2003.

In 2007, the church in which he serves as Pastor (Grace Reformed Church) was organized as a new and separate congregation by the Presbytery of the Midwest (in which he also currently serves as Stated Clerk).

Christian and his wife Kelly have six children (Zechariah, Isabella, Micaiah, Anastasia, Nehemiah, and Savannah).
