The Staff Parish Relations Committee and those who interviewed Kristin are glad to have discovered someone who is “self-aware, authentic, thoughtful and attentive, a good listener, and able to articulate her faith.” These are the very qualities that members of the congregation most often prioritized in our recent survey about Children and Youth Ministry at RHUMC.
Kristin’s home church is Los Altos UMC in Long Beach. She has experienced the ministry there as a youth, a young adult volunteer, and a part-time staff member. She is a veteran of four summers as a site staff member of the Sierra Service Project. She has a dual Master’s Degree from Boston University in Theology and Social Work. Kristin describes herself as, “most passionate and effective when able to work with individuals on a personal level while also developing programs that nurture and collaborate with the individual to become their best self physically, mentally, and spiritually.”
As the Director of Youth Ministry at RHUMC, Kristin looks forward to working, in conjunction with the congregation, to facilitate programming that is “grounded in God’s love, welcoming of all, and integrated into the overall life and mission of the church.”
