Vance Christie was born in Indiana and raised in south-central Washington State. He had the unspeakable blessing of being raised in a loving Christian home where both his parents consistently lived by the principles they believed and taught. His father, a pastor, was used of the Lord to lead Vance to saving faith in Jesus Christ as a young boy.
Vance attended Grace College and Grace Theological Seminary in Winona Lake, Indiana. While in college, he met and married his wife, Leeta. They have been married forty-two years. They are blessed with three lovely adult daughters, three quality sons-in-law and four lively grandkids.
Since graduating from seminary (with the Master of Divinity degree) in 1986, Vance pastored churches in Michigan, Iowa and Nebraska. He most recently served as pastor of the Evangelical Free Church of Aurora, Nebraska for twenty-five years. He now devotes his full-time ministry endeavors to writing and related speaking opportunities.
An avid fan of historic Christian biography throughout his ministry, Vance has published eight books in that field since 1999. His works have been published by Christian Focus Publications, P & R (Presbyterian & Reformed), and Barbour Publishing.
