Who We Are

Christian Tech Center Ministries is a faith-based 501c3 nonprofit service organization dedicated to furthering the gospel of Jesus Christ through technological advancement of our community.

 

Our Founder

Andre Klass

My name is Andre Klass, and I am a lifelong resident of Seminole County, Florida. I grew up as an only child with an autism spectrum condition called Asperger’s syndrome, while being raised by a hardworking single mother. My career in the technology industry started when I was 17 as a support specialist at the flight simulator company Elite Simulation Solutions. When I was 20, I shifted to a consumer-facing role, rising up the ranks at the locally-reputed computer store Refresh Computers, where I would also become known as Central Florida’s leading computer authority as host of the Tech Talk radio show on WDBO.

My coming to Christ had a rather unique origin. Over the years I always held onto a drive to serve the community, and that drive inspired me to run for local public office. While I was not destined to win the election, the experience brought me to something even greater. During a visit to Seminole State College collecting qualifying petitions to get on the ballot, I was invited to ENC night at Lake Mary Church, where the message being preached connected with me on a very deep level. From there I started attending services regularly as the Lord continued to break through into my heart, and I finally made the decision to give my life to Jesus Christ on the evening of February 26, 2019. As my relationship with Christ has continued to grow, I have experienced a complete transformation in my life, breaking me free from many areas of bondage & affliction and filling me with a newfound joy.

Living for the gospel of Jesus Christ has given me a whole new outlook and purpose, from which I am able to build upon my passion for community stewardship and honor the Lord with everything I do.

 

Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. -1 Peter 4:10

 

The Calling

In our present-day modern society, access to technology has become more essential than ever for staying connected to family & friends, applying for jobs, academic achievement and much more. The personal computer is one of the most depended upon utilities in almost every facet of our lives. Despite this, it is a critical-care need that is often overlooked the most.

During a sermon titled “Tomorrow Matters,” I was given a calling to exercise my gifts and talents in technology for the glory of Christ by serving the underrepresented and impoverished with their computer necessities. This vision would found the basis for the launch of this ministry.

Christian Tech Center is not just an ordinary workshop, but an instrument to be used for the Lord’s power of healing and provision to help restore balance, independence, and livelihoods of families and households across Central Florida. Our public-facing facility offers an inclusive environment where everyone can feel welcomed, and people from all diverse backgrounds can find security and comfort without judgment.

This is the very first ministerial organization of its kind aimed at providing free computer services for those in need, with the potential to impact many individuals, families, and generations to come. We look forward to the opportunity to be of service!
