Church Administrator
LIFE STORY 
Kris, a native Californian who grew up near the beaches of Southern California, devotes her time to pursuing grace and learning all she can about what that looks like day-to-day.  ‚ÄčKris attended Cal Poly State University, and taught PE for 13 years. She has been married to her loving husband, Ken for 38 years, and they have two amazing adult children; Brady and Bryan, and one amazing daughter-in-law Shelby.  She has four Yorkies at home, and in her spare time she loves to blog (www.thegracethatshapesmylife.com), golf, play softball, assist with equine therapy, cheer the San Francisco 49ers and Giants on, and spend as much time with her family as humanly possible.

She loves using her gifts for God's glory - her tech, admin and organization skills allow her to minister and tend to the needs of the church administratively, while her outgoing love for those around her and her gift of hospitality and mercy make a perfect fit for church health and growth.   
TESTIMONY
I always assumed that I was a Christian because I lived in America and my mom took me to church on Sundays.  Being the youngest and only girl of three, I was quite the tom-boy growing up, but I couldn't shake the feeling that I didn't quite fit in.  By the time I entered High School I had questions and doubts, and began the journey of pursuing a relationship with God.  College found me still trying to figure out how to get the attention I so craved, and so I became the funny girl, doing things for attention and splashing my love for others all over, which left my cup pretty dry.  After marrying Kenny G, we moved to Northern California and I was drawn to a woman at my church who didn't just talk Jesus, but she lived Jesus. She mentored me and I began to flex my faith muscle for the first time.  Mentors have always been a big part of my story.

Fast forward...2 kids...PE teacher...Yorkies galore...and then I semi-retire and start working at an amazing church for 10 years where my pastor and his wife (the Children's Director) lived grace outwardly every day.  I had never seen grace put into action, and it's there that the meaning of grace began to dawn on me. Just working in ministry alongside both of them was a mentoring relationship and my faith grew and grace became more than just a word you hear in church. It was revolutionary to me, and I began to chase after it and make it my own - in the giving and the receiving of it.  My hearts desire now is to serve God’s people in the broken places of my city and world. 
HOPE FOR GRACE SACRAMENTO
‚Äč
How could I not work at Grace, right?  Here, I imagine a place where people are trying grace on, sometimes for the first time, and learning what it feels like to act it out in life in the here and now.  I imagine a group of flawed folks with broken parts learning to have a vertical relationship with the one who created them, and in turn affecting the horizontal relationships around them.  I imagine a place where people come alongside one another in the valleys of life, as well as the peeks. 

It is an honor to be serving at Grace, and God placed me here without a doubt.  Working alongside Brad and Daniel is a dream, and I love what I do because I get to mix my administrative skills with my creative skills, along with my love for loving on folks around me.  What an joy it is be a part of this amazing congregation.
