She was actively involved in MOPS at St. Andrews for many years and now is embracing her new role with small groups. Prior to her role as “family coordinator,” Kristin worked as a physical therapist (now she just rehabs her kids injuries). Kristin enjoys running, hot yoga and scrapbooking when not busy with the rest of life. Kristin’s goal is get as many members as possible involved in small group ministries to help facilitate stronger relationships with one another and to grow closer to God. Currently that involves encouraging St. Andrews members to be involved with a small group to study “The Story” and continuing to nurture other small groups ministries such as New Life, MOPS, Caring Partners and prayer groups. If you are not involved in a small group please prayerfully consider joining one and contact Kristin for assistance. (church office or 209-607-3127)
