About Jen Hale Christy

It was a warm spring evening in Abilene, Texas (2005) when I heard my calling--clearly, loudly, and undeniably. Twelve years later I still bristle at the term, but my brief forays away from that calling (and numerous mentors) have confirmed its validity. I am called to use my gifts of speaking, writing, teaching, and leading in ways that announce and usher in God's Kingdom here on earth. This happens everywhere--from the academy to the church, to the neighborhood and the grocery store, to the interwebs and the kitchen.

If you're interested in academic credentials, here they are: DMin in Missional and Spiritual Formation from Lipscomb University (2015); MDiv from Abilene Christian University (2006); BA Psychology from UC Davis (2001).
