Meet Our Director

Christina Weidner is a passionate Worship Pastor and leader who’s core mission is to equip and activate the body of Christ into their God-given abilities in the area of music, worship and the creative arts as well as lead the people of God into His presence to experience then fullness of God.

Christina received a vision and calling for ministry at 12 years old. It was clear that God was calling her to the nations to teach people how to worship Him. She was married to James Weidner in 2000 and left for the mission field at the age of 18 spending over 15 years overseas fulfilling this calling. Christina has spent the majority of her ministry writing songs, training children, youth and adults by equipping them to be proficient on their instruments and in leading worship within the local Church. Her passion is to see believers realize his or her musical gifting, increase in confidence and skill and be able to lead the people of God into that Most Holy Place of worship.

Christina Weidner holds her Degree in Christian Arts with a Major in Voice as well as her Degree in Ministerial Studies. Christina is a trained and seasoned Pastor serving her Pastors in Manila, Philippines, New Orleans, Louisiana and currently serves the church she and her husband have planted in Shanghai, China and Covington, LA.

“LOVE it so much!!!! Thank you for this community of fellowship for these children based on the love of God, learning… AND fun!”
Faith Walton (RLC Parent)
