About Chrissy Callahan
Chrissy Callahan is the writer behind Status Quo Questions. She holds a B.S. in Organizational Leadership with minors in Missions and Pastoral Leadership and a M.A. in Ministerial Leadership.
Status Quo Questions was started in 2018 as an avenue to address topics and issues that were often left untouched and unchanged within modern American Christianity, despite not reflecting actual biblical principles. If the Body of Christ is going to grow stronger and help heal and strengthen communities, it needs to also be healthy itself.
It’s taken a few years to get around to the original purpose for this blog, but the time in between has been filled with sweet lessons about God’s character and timing.
That’s how we make a difference—We take small steps day by day and in our learning, in our growing, in our becoming more reliant on God and less reliant on our own ambitions, we learn how to work together to be the effective Church that God has created us to be. Wherever you are in your journey, you’re invited to join the conversation.

There’s still a lot to learn, but it’s neat to see how Status Quo Questions has grown out of a personal blog.
Optimism is not living in a fantasy world where nothing tragic ever happens; vital optimism is a confidence that tragedy is not the last word, that the best is yet to be. Optimism is being able to acknowledge brutal realities and to point to an even greater reality – that our experiences are not in vain, our responses are not futile, and our efforts are going to be worthwhile.
