Kristi joined the staff in February 2020, but has been a part of the Gateway family since moving to Findlay in 2004 (minus a few years when she lived in Wisconsin). Shortly after first attending Gateway she joined a Life Group, which helped her feel connected to others in the church. As she didn't know many people in Findlay at the time, her Life Group members were the ones that encouraged her and cared for her in her daily life. She has been involved in the Life Group ministry ever since this time.
Kristi is married to a great guy, Rich, and they have 3 children: Gabe, Camille, and Claire. She loves outdoor adventures, traveling, reading, and cheering on her kids at their activities.
