Tell us about your family. How do you feel about relocating?

I have five younger siblings: 3 brothers and 2 sisters, all our names starting with a ‘C,’ my mum’s idea. So far Moscow is where I will be remaining, in the future my plan is to move either to the UK or one of the Germanic/Scandinavian countries for some form of mission work.

How old were you when you were drawn to Christ and how is your Christian walk these days?

At 17 God rescued me from my own living hell of severe depression, suicidal thoughts, and pornography. God’s grace is truly amazing and freeing, sin no longer has domination, he changed me from a rebellious sinner to a man of God (I Peter 2) and as a result, I cannot but be zealous about bringing my life into conformity to his word, through faith alone, by grace alone, through Jesus Christ alone.

How have the Doctrines of Grace changed or affected your life?

They’re part of the basis of my faith. I wouldn’t be alive without it. The Doctrines of Grace are part of the theological lattice-work of the Bible. They’re not in isolation, but part of a coherent whole. Understanding how God interacts with his people has been transformational in my intellectual exploration of theology and life.

Do you have a "Quiet Time?" What are you studying?

Reading the Proverb of the day is typically the fashion. Most of my reading is school-related or adjunct to developing key points of my philosophy, lately dealing with political theory. I’m slowly making my way through Lark Rise to Candleford for some fiction reading. For poetry, I’m slowly working through George Herbert and Emily Dickinson.

Who is your favorite Biblical Character and why?

My understanding of this question excludes Jesus. It would have to be David. The fact that he was called a man after God’s own heart, despite his sins and failures is encouraging to me. It seems quite likely that he struggled with depression, something that makes the Psalms so poignant.

Are you content being single? Why? If not, why?

No, singleness is an affliction and has been a consistent struggle. It doesn’t strike me that someone can be content in singleness. It should be something that provokes action toward working on a relationship that develops into marriage and family.

Singleness is not a gift, celibacy is.

What are four qualities your friends would attribute to you?

I have been told that I am a hard worker, gentlemanly, reserved, and loyal.

What are three things you are most thankful for?

God’s amazing grace and mercy upon undeserved sinners, the gift of life, and the friends and mentors God has put into my life.

Describe the character and personality traits you enjoy in another person? What are yours?

An honesty that will tell the truth with sensitivity, but will be blunt when necessary. Kindness and gentleness. An interested person who enjoys life, music, & art. Artistic, down to earth. Charming and lively. Willing to listen and be thought-provoking. Enjoying the small things in life, and taking delight in them in the dance that is life.

Personally? Typically I am quiet but don’t enjoy the silence. One on one conversations or interactions is what I am comfortable with. The smaller the party, the better it is. My preference is to talk about serious issues, though banter is fun with the right person. Small talk is a trial. I’m very loyal unless provoked. Analysis and the big picture are where it is, personally. Figuring out how people or ideas connect is something that I find fascinating. Art, music, and film are a great deal of fun, aside from some exceptions.

Finding out how people work and the desire to learn more about myself led to studying personality and character systems. So I’ve taken the MBTI, the Big 5, and the Enneagram a handful of times. On the MBTI I’ve tested as INFP but might actually be an ENFP. With the Enneagram, I’ve typed as a 4 with either a 3 or 5 wing.

Other than your parents, who has been the most influential person in your life and how?

The vast majority of my influential figures are British. Consequently, some of my views are more British than American. G.A. Henty was one of my formative influences. Though his characters are rather two-dimensional, it was the emphasis on character that was influential. Jane Austen is my favourite novelist of all time (I discovered that she’s a 9th cousin 7x removed!) G.K. Chesterton also has been very formative. His works ‘Heretics” and “Orthodoxy,’ as well as the novel ‘Manalive’ added flavour to my philosophy. At this point, I’d call myself a Chestertonian Calvinist. Os Guinness has influenced my views on calling and vocation. Søren Kierkegaard also has contributed towards my views on calling and manhood. His development on the ‘Knight of Faith’ has been influential. J.R.R. Tolkien & C.S. Lewis have been influential in developing my philosophy of creativity and subcreation. Ken Myers’ “All God’s Children in Blue Suede Shoes’ has been influential in my interest in cultural analysis. Abraham Kuyper is one of my heroes, politically and spiritually. He has profoundly influenced my political theory and my reformed understanding.

Many of the following figures have influenced tastes and preferences. Some might be older or more recent.

Shakespeare, the Brothers Grimm, Sir Walter Scott, Lord Alfred Tennyson, John Milton, William Blake, Robert Louis Stevenson, William Wordsworth, Emily Dickinson, Joseph Altsheler, George MacDonald, T.S. Eliot, Neil Postman, Gilbert & Sullivan, Ralph Vaughn Williams, Henry Purcell, Tchaikovsky, the Strauss family, Richard Wagner, P.G. Wodehouse, Martin Luther, John Calvin, Jonathan Edwards, Robert L. Dabney, Douglas Wilson, C.R. Wiley, R.C. Sproul, Edward Welch, Cornelius & Henry Van Til, David Chilton, Ken Gentry, Gary North,  and many others.

What contributed to your previous relationship/marriage ending?

Haven’t gotten to this point.

How long have you been on your own since and what did you to do get through it?

Thank God I haven’t had to deal with this yet.

Favorite lines from movies, poems, songs, hymns or Scripture you would like to tell us about?

Psalms 19, 27, 37, and 119. The entirety of Henry Lyte’s hymn Jesus, I My Cross Have Taken. Other favourite hymns are Jesu, Lover of my Soul (sung to Aberytswyth;) Onward, Christian Soldiers; Jesus Shall Reign; And Can it Be; O God beyond All Praising; O the Deep, Deep Love of Jesus; and many more.

 

“If we preach the whole counsel of God, we shall be accused of extremism, not only by the world but also by a professing church that cannot endure sound doctrine.” ~ Vance Havner (This is especially important today!)

“Duty is ours, consequences are God’s.” ~ General Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson

“Marriage is a duel to the death which no man of honour should decline.” ~ G.K. Chesterton

“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” ~ Edmund Burke

 

There are so many though!

What type of work do/did you do?

So far I’ve worked at Safeway, Chick-fil-A, and Western Laundry. The longest time being spent at Chick-fil-A, which was 4 years.

How long have you been/were you in that line of work? Do/you enjoy it?

Working at Chick-fil-A was good and bad. Good in the sense that I liked the people I work, but it ultimately took a heavy toll as the environment was very exhausting. Western Laundry has been better. The pace of work is much healthier and better for my mental and social well-being. In terms of enjoyment, it has its moments. It’s healthier but not really what I’d prefer to be doing.

Do you have any life-long goals? What are they?

Eventually, I’d like to be a media director.

Starting a network of Reformed Christian schools in the UK, Germanic & Scandinavian countries. Creating, directing, and producing media along those & similar lines.

There are several books that I’d like to write. The main areas of interest are genealogy/history, politics, theology, and culture.

Ultimately, even with all of that, I want to spend time with my family.

Where were you born and where have you traveled?

I was born in Austin, Texas and have lived in Maryland, Alabama, and Arizona. Travelling, I’ve had the opportunity to visit the UK several times, as well as France.

How do you enjoy your leisure time? What do you do for recreation?

Leisure & recreation? Typically reading, research, and photo editing would be put here. However, let’s exclude them. I’m not really an outdoors person, but walking is good. If it were possible to go horse riding, that would be amazing. Playing board games or computer games also are options. Listening to music is typically a must. Concerts, plays, or films would fall here as well.

Is there anything that the questionnaire didn’t cover?

If you want to find out message me!

About Me

Good to meet you! My name is Chase. Yes, I get the chase jokes and the bank references… it’s ok if you pull them I just might be a little disconcerted ;). I’ve grown up for the most part in Texas, though I have lived in Maryland, Alabama, and Arizona and have been abroad to the United Kingdom a couple of times and France once, where I nearly joined the French Foreign Legion. Grew up in a Baptist family but wasn’t saved until about 2010 from a personal hell of severe depression, suicidal tendencies, and pornography – all of which by the amazing grace of God he saved me from. My free time is typically spent studying, covering various topics such as theology, psychology, language, and history. My favourite escapes into fun include tête-à-têtes on a variety of topics ranging a variety of interests such as the previously mentioned topics of study, film, and music; if I’m watching something it usually is a sitcom, period drama, musical, or an action film; if it’s a game, most likely Civilisation VI, Assassin’s Creed, Tropico, or Minecraft. Some quirks include British spelling, an occasional British accent, and “dressing up” almost all the time.

I don’t have a paid membership, so finding me on FB would be the best way of contacting me.

My Interests

So many… history in general, more particular British and European history. Connected to that, genealogy. Music; particularly jazz/big band, some pop and rock, not a fan of rap but can enjoy some of it, and you can’t really beat classical music. I’ll usually fall back on jazz/big band and classical. Film is one of my favourite art mediums, preferred genres are historical, musical, comedy, and drama. Language & linguistics; I’ve collected various books on language, some dictionaries, several books in different languages, and how they work. I really like finding connections, and learning new things.
