Founding Board Member
Christian K. Downs is currently the WA state Regional Director for Alpha USA. Christian previously worked at The Tacoma Rescue Mission and Seattle’s Union Gospel Mission as a Major Gift Officer and a faith based addiction case manager. He has taken his earlier sales and management experience and combined it with his ability to relate to people from all backgrounds. Utilizing these unique skillsets, he encourages people to see a better life through faith in Jesus.
When Christian isn’t working to help churches with their evangelism efforts, he loves to spend time on the golf course and currently is a 4 handicap. Additionally he loves to go on hikes after church (when the Seahawks aren’t playing), play and watch sports, and go to the gym with his wife of 2 years, Kari. His passion for hiking/climbing came 5 years ago when he was introduced to the climb team at UGM Seattle while participating in their program. He then went into ministry. Christian helped lead three years of Climbing out of Homelessness programs and loves all that it represents. He now has 7 summits under his belt and is excited for more.
