Pastor Rev. Christian Coon

Christian is a co-founder of Urban Village. He’s a native Iowan who worked in the not-for-profit public relations and journalism fields before going into church ministry. He loves running by the lake, watching reruns of “The West Wing,” baseball, deep-dish pizza, and, most importantly, his wife, Anne, and two children, Caroline and Ethan. His book Failing Boldly came out in 2017. You can read his blog and listen to “Failing Boldly” podcast at
