Pastor attended Western Conservative Baptist Seminary and is a graduate of American Lutheran Theological Seminary with a Masters Degree; emphasis in Pastoral Care and Systematic Theology.

"I am thrilled to serve God's people of Christ's Church & School in Chippewa Falls, as my passion is for all to know about God's love for them in Christ Jesus. One of my favorite sayings, which I borrowed from another is: 'I am not a better Christian now than I was ten years ago. All I have is a better awareness of how bad I am and how gracious Jesus is.'"

Markham.jpg

Mr. Markham

Middle School Teacher

Mr. Markham was born and raised in Minnesota before his family moved to the Eau Claire area when he was in the 5th grade. Teaching has always been interwoven into his professional vocations including his work as a youth director and confirmation teacher. Mr. Markham and his wife Kellie share in raising six children and they enjoy spending time outdoors with friends and family.

Mr. Markham feels that the greatest advantage of a  Christian Education is that the school is a part of Christ’s Body, His Church. In this educational ministry, teachers, pastors and administrators are acting as educational stewards to children that belong to Jesus. 


Christ has revealed to us how precious children are to Him and His Kingdom. Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” 

-Matthew 19:14
