Kristine became a Christian at age 13, while her father was stationed at Subic Bay, Philippines with the US Navy. While she was discipled in her early Christian life by men and women who had come to Subic to minister in a different culture, Kristine felt that that was what God was calling her to as well.
Kristine went to university and worked at various jobs, including adjunct professor at Marian University and staff writer at InterVarsity’s national office. Along the way she prepared for the mission field in various ways, such as getting a degree at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School and the University of Tennessee so that whenever God called her to serve, she could step on the plan without waiting to get further training. She even bought a travel iron that works on European current because she was going there one day.
That day finally came when she went to Britain with IFES to work at their main office in Oxford for a year. After that year, Kristine applied with Global Scholars. She was accepted and served in Lithuania before being assigned to be a Visiting Professor at Goce Delčev University of Štip, Macedonia. Kristine has spent the last five years teaching and editing the Balkan Social Science Review. She hopes to continue for many years to come.
