Chris Steubing -
I was born in San Antonio, TX and grew up singing in the choir of my small, country church as a kid. That led me to sing in choir and musical theater during college at Texas Lutheran University. Over one summer working as a camp counselor when I was 20 years old, I learned how to play the guitar. I’ve been writing songs and performing ever since, from singing cover tunes in bars for free beer and pizza to leading worship in church praise bands.
12 years ago, I left my job as a church youth minister and tried to make a career as an independent musician. I recorded a CD on my home computer, gave concerts at churches, and led music for youth events. I was just getting started, but it didn’t last very long.
After 6 months, the bills had piled up and other important things took over…
·I got married
·My wife and I moved from Texas to Minnesota
·I went back to working at a church and attended seminary to become a pastor.
·Then came babies and parenting…
·My first and second calls as a parish pastor…
All along I kept singing and writing songs and getting feedback from folks that my music was a blessing and an inspiration to them.
And then, in the summer of 2012, a singer-songwriter I’d met 11 years prior was in Minnesota for a house concert. My wife and I went and took a couple friends of ours who left that night intent on getting me to play a concert at their house. Ever since then, I’ve been thinking and praying and preparing for this moment.
This past September, I finally played that house concert in my friends’ home with my band and we raised over $800 for the charity HopeKids in one night. I'd love to be able to do more of inspire people with a message of hope and the love of God through my original music that, I believe, can impact the world in a big way. I need your help to make that happen!
Today, I live in Rosemount, MN with my wife Amy and children Ameya (7) and Asher (4). I am pastor of Hope Lutheran Church in Minneapolis, MN.
