About the Author
Christ (rhymes with “wrist”) Otto has been an artist, musician, writer, teacher, pastry chef, and a lot of other jobs in between those ones. Through it all, he is learning how to be a son.
After a lot of pain and suffering, a wise priest instructed Christ to “Listen to the Lord and do what He tells you.” That simple advice has transformed his life and opened the doors to the adventure he now leads in Boston.
Christ is a graduate of Houghton College and Asbury Theological Seminary. He is the author of The Glory of a Wasted Life, An Army Arising:Why Artists are on the Frontline of the Next Move of God and is the director of Belonging House in Boston. In 2009 he spearheaded the Red Envelope Project, a movement that eventually sent 3.5 million empty red envelopes to President Barack Obama to protest his stance on abortion. This movement has spread to Canada, the Philippines, France and the United Kingdom.
From mid 2009 to early 2011 Christ operated the 333 House of Prayer in relationship with Wisdom Way. He has also served as the interim Executive Director at Daybreak Pregnancy Resource Center.
Christ lives by faith and has devoted himself to ministry to the Lord in prayer, to raising up an army of artists, and to re-establish the tabernacle of David in the earth. He is a gifted artist and worship leader, and has been seen painting at conferences and worship events across New England, including the Boston Night of Worship.
He is available for speaking, teaching, worship, and ministry engagements by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
