Pastor Christie


Rev. Christie Beckmann comes to us from Indianapolis, IN, where she was ordained as an ELCA pastor on January 12, 2019. She was then installed at Hope on February 24, 2019.


Before entering the ministry, Pastor Christie served as Director of Event Services at the University of Indianapolis for 15 years. She also has previous experience working in ministry in the United Methodist Church as an assistant pastor and youth leader, and as the drama ministry lead at a high school camp. Her undergraduate degree is in theatre, and she enjoys acting, lighting and sound design, and playwriting.


Christie is the proud mom of two sons, Vincent (24) and Marcus (18). She’s also a proud dogmom of Shadow, a 6-year-old schnoodle.


Pastor Christie is passionate about sharing the message of the gospel, and equally passionate about sharing Jesus’s message of radical welcome with everyone. She enjoys preaching, leading worship, and empowering others to use their gifts and talents for ministry.


Favorite hobbies include yoga, hiking, and biking. She enjoys reading and watching science fiction and fantasy fiction. Favorite nicknames include PC, Pastor Crispy, and Pastor Crispy Bacon (the last two being affectionately bestowed upon her by the wonderful people of HOPE).
