According to http://www.kartenmeister.com , Kristkowo is located at 
N54/31 E18/18 in West Prussia, a short distance west of Gdansk.  This 
is nowhere near Brandenburg.

Trying to find a record in Brandenburg without a specific town 
location will be very difficult if not impossible.  My suggestion 
would be to start with a search for the records at this Kristkowo 
since you have little else to go on anyway.  I have no research 
experience in West Prussia so I cannot offer advice on what specific 
parish to consider.
