Kristina grew up in Plano, TX. She received her BA from Dallas Baptist University in Religious Studies. Living abroad as an adult, Kristina understands the difficulty of adjusting to a new country while not understanding the language and customs. During her time working at an international boarding school in Germany and in Central Texas, she got to live with many students from different countries, cultures, and traditions. One of her favorite things to do is learn about other cultures and traditions first-hand. She has taught ESL to all ages from age 4 to adult for over five years. After volunteering at FTNRO one summer, Kristina fell in love with the children and the ministry here. When not teaching ESL, she homeschools her 3 children alongside her husband Darren. She enjoys reading, hiking, and creating.
