Kris & Ginger
Kris and Ginger’s first experience with Engaged Encounter was in 2007, months before their own wedding. Looking back, it’s easy to see how that weekend laid a strong foundation for their marriage relationship. Kris spent the first years of their marriage working at a large construction company in Training and Development before being called into full time pastoral ministry at Finland Mennonite Church. Besides finishing up seminary, ordination classes, and pastoring full time; Kris enjoys spending time with their family of three (soon to be four) children- bike riding, kayaking, swimming…pretty much anything with the family! Ginger taught 2nd grade at the local elementary school before they had children, and now has a much smaller class homeschooling their kids. Ginger also enjoys caring for their animals, which at the moment include butterflies, a lizard, tadpoles/frogs, ants, over 30 chickens, and their dog. Kris and Ginger are excited to be joining as presenters in 2014.
