To say that Christopher A. Countryman's life was easy would be a drastic and extreme exaggeration of the truth.
When Christopher was two he was adopted by a military family, and struggled throughout his childhood to overcome various learning disabilities and attention deficit disorder.
By the time Christopher was a teenager he had overcome his learning disabilities and became actively involved in various community organizations helped others through their humanitarian efforts.
By the time Christopher entered high-school he had become actively involved in his schools Student Government Association and was elected as President of his schools student led Christian organization.
After high-school Christopher attended Bible College, where upon completion of his studies, he served as the youth pastor and associate pastor and several churches.
Christopher also served his community through various other areas as well. These included him working as a juvenile corrections officer, volunteering as a community organizer, serving on various county boards and coalitions and volunteering with several different human and civil rights groups.
After seeing the need for equality in the Wiregrass area where he lived Christopher became one of the founding members of Equality Wiregrass, and he coordinated and organized several rallies and demonstrations in support of marriage equality for Alabama.
Eventually Christopher's to help others, and to fight for the rights of all people, motivated him to commit himself to intense personal study and educational pursuits in government and law.
It wasn't long until Christopher took his diverse education, his life experiences, and his passion for helping his fellow citizens and made the announcement that he would run for public office.
Determined to fight for all the people of Alabama, and to help create a legacy in Alabama we can all be proud of....meet 2018 gubernatorial candidate Christopher A. Countryman.
