Christopher Gearhart

Owner // Producer // Designer // Developer

I’ve been creating media for over 30 years. I really enjoy the creative process and the people I meet along the way! I continue to learn and expand my skill set. I have done a lot of work in the fields of healthcare, church, education, industrial, non-profit, food & beverage, and small business. I enjoy spending time with my family, working out, walking my dog, fishing, and watching sports.

What I Do

I provide professional creative marketing solutions for clients around the country....from small business to large corporations. My clients love that I’m a one-stop shop for video, website, graphics, and print. I strive for excellence in everything I do.

My Story

I was born in Tifton, GA, in October of 1976. I come from a family of four children, myself being the oldest, with two brothers, Shawn and Jason, and sister, Tiffany. I spent most of my childhood in Dublin, Georgia until our family relocated to Port Huron, Michigan in January 1990. I was fortunate to grow up in a Christian home with an involved mom and dad.

During my senior year in high school (New Life Christian Academy – Class of 1994), I was hired at Life of Faith Fellowship (LOFF) to help in the maintenance department. As the church grew, my dad (who was the senior pastor at that time) had a vision to start a multi-media department that would produce a weekly television show, take care of all graphic design, and integrate media into our worship services. He asked me if I'd be interested in getting involved, and from that day on, I was the head of the church's media department.

I was employed for 10 years at Life of Faith Fellowship. My job duties included overseeing several staff in my department, managing 20+ volunteers, producing weekly TV programs, creating motion graphics, developing media for our "live" services, and graphic design... just to name a few. It was a great learning experience and gave me the training I needed to grow.

In March of 1998, I married my beautiful wife, Andrea. She has been such a support to me and has pushed me to excellence in everything I do. (I love you, always and forever!) We have two daughters, Kayla and Emily, and a son, Kyle. Having this beautiful family helped me to mature and focus on what life is all about...family. My family is my life and my joy!

On March 15, 2005, a big dream of mine came true...I started my own media company, Eighth Day Media, LLC. God placed so many people in my life to prepare me for this very time. I am so thankful for everything God has done for me and my family, and the favor He continues to show to me and my business!

People ask why I chose the name Eighth Day Media, here's why...in Biblical numerology, the number eight represents new beginnings. As applied to me, this was a new beginning for me and my family. After so many years dedicated to working at the church, I'm on my own. It's a new company, new possibilities, new excitement, a new day! Dream BIG...then live your dreams!
