Bishop Tommy McGhee and Discipleship Ministries are pleased to announce Kristi Cain as the new Director of IPHC Kids’ Ministries.
Kristi Cain has served in a broad range of discipleship capacities since she graduated from Emmanuel College in 1997. She was formerly the Executive Editor of Curriculum for the IPHC and has also enjoyed being on the staff of two churches where she directed student and children’s ministry programs. Through the years she has taught and worked on the campuses of Emmanuel College and Wheaton College as well as a Christian secondary school (Oak Hill Classical) near Atlanta, Georgia, where she currently resides with her family.
Kristi first sensed a call to full-time ministry as a teenager at the Cornerstone Conference youth camp, but she became captivated with the specific work of discipleship as a student in the Psychology department at Emmanuel. She then went on to receive her MA in Christian Formation and Ministry at Wheaton College. Her desire is to spend her life serving Christ by building up and supporting his most treasured possession: the Church.
She is married to her best friend, Jamie, and together they have three children.
"I'm grateful for this new opportunity to serve the denomination and ministry that was so influential in my life. While it is a sobering task and one I do not take lightly, I am also excited about the possibilities of partnering with those who disciple children throughout our denomination. Together, I hope we can help lay foundations of truth that God will use to forever change the lives of kids." - Kristi Cain
