Kristen began attending SGCC in 2003 when her husband Dave joined the pastoral staff. She has served with both the ministries of SGCC and SGCS in many different capacities including assisting in children’s ministries, teaching Sunday school and SGCS chapels, coordinating SGCS parent volunteers, fundraisers and campus events. Kristen came to know the Lord as a child at a church summer camp and really began to grow in her faith while a college student. Kristen and Dave met at USC and served with Campus Crusade for Christ for thirteen years before coming to SGCC. Dave and Kristen were married in 1989 and have four children–Anna (husband Mike), Caleb (wife Heather), Abigail (husband Justyn) and Luke (wife Natalie), as well as eight beautiful grandchildren. Her favorite Psalm is Psalm 19.
