Who's in Charge Here?

Sunset Covenant is a congregationally-led church.

The major financial decisions that need to be made are done through a rotating council of church members, who provide accountability and support for the church staff. (When there's a super major decision, all the members in the congregation vote.)

However, the church council chooses to empower and employ a team of people to help facilitate ministry.

This is that team: 

Kristen has been working in the field of education for the last 9 years, and is so happy to be back in the world of preschool after spending some time with elementary students! 

She loves helping children with their social emotional development, and fostering the love of learning and new discoveries in her students during the most formative years of their education. 

She has a degree in Human Development and Family Sciences from Oregon State University, with endorsements in Early Childhood Education and Human Services. 

She lives in the Rock Creek community with her husband and two daughters, and loves spending time traveling and exploring new places.
