Christopher was born and raised in Minnesota, and while attending college he completed several mission internships in the Czech Republic. It was during his first internship that Chris developed a desire to bring the Gospel to the many people who don’t know Jesus. Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic, has nearly 1.2 million people and it is less than 0.5% Evangelical Christian. While serving in Prague in 2012, Christopher and Magda met and were married five years later. The Piersons are committed to bringing the Good News and hope to the former communist nation.
