Christine was born and raised in the Twin Cities, has a history degree from St. Kate’s, and has an MA and MDiv from United Theological Seminary. She is married to Scott, who works in memory care, and they have two children, Zachary (9) and Benji (6). She loves reading, music, art, and cooking. She calls herself a “huge Harry Potter nerd.” She hopes to bring fresh creative perspectives to the good work the Spirit is already doing at WBLUMC, and she looks forward to meeting people where they are on life’s journey, bringing out their most authentic, spirit-filled selves.
Christine is a member of the United Church of Christ and will be ordained in that denomination. The United Methodist Church and the UCC have mutual recognition of each other’s ministries, making this kind of appointment possible.
