I’m Chris Howse from northwestern Michigan (Traverse City), one of eleven children and a lifetime member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. After graduating from Traverse City West Senior High, I served a two-year mission trip in Sydney, Australia for the church. Received a Bachelor of Arts in politics and government from Brigham Young University in 2020. I moved to Chicago to work as a full-time field representative for Turning Point USA where I visited college campuses daily trying to promote our conservative values. I moved back to Grand Rapids and now work in Turning Point USA’s new Faith department as the Michigan representative trying to educate and activate our Christian congregations politically.
MORE TO KNOW ABOUT CHRIS HOWSE FROM OUR UNITE FOR MICHIGAN Q&A:
Q. If you were not in your current role/endeavor, what would you be doing instead?
A. Studying for the LSAT more extensively to enter law school. Knowing the law in order to protect our civil liberties from infringement, is something I’m very passionate about.
Q. What has been the biggest impact in your industry or life in the last 5 years?
A. God has for sure. He is the single most important Being in this world and in my life. He blesses my life every day. He is the only way we will recover this nation and preserve our liberties, so we need to align ourselves more with the principles He outlined for us. No other policy or political effort will be fully successful with that.
Q. Where do you see yourself or business in 5 years?
A. Hopefully working either on the legal team for Turning Point USA or some other outspoken conservative organization!
Q. Who do you most admire or are inspired by, and why?
A. Jesus Christ first and foremost. Otherwise, I would say my father. He’s been the best example of a Christian, conservative who takes his role as a divine son, father, and citizen very seriously.
Q. What organization is top on your list to provide support?
A. Turning Point USA.
Q. What is the biggest need you face in your business or organization today?
A. We need more people in this nation to be getting involved and being outspoken politically an important priority in their life. We need people who are moral and religious.
