In 2006, Christ “rhymes with wrist” John Otto was called by God to begin writing, leading worship, and hanging out in a local coffee shop.
His adventure, and the people who joined him, eventually took the name Belonging House. Today after lots of coffee, 6 books, and thousands of emails, Belonging House has become an international “house” for creative culture shapers. Through it all he has learned to be a son, and bring others into a relationship with God.
Christ Otto holds degrees from Houghton College and Asbury Theological Seminary. Since 1986 he has worked in a variety of media as a freelance artist including decoupage, faux finishing, mural work, sign painting, commercial and retail design, and pastry. He is a classically trained tenor and vocal coach.
Belonging House does not raise support. We do pray and share our needs with those who are in our inner circle of intercessors. God has been very faithful, and has supplied over 400 rolls of toilet paper in the past 8 years! Christ is available for speaking and worship events, and will say yes to any opportunity that is willing to cover travel, housing and meals.
