Meet our 2021 speaker…

God has given Kris a desire to encourage women to live in obedience to His holy Word. Her gift of exhortation delights women both in this country and in other parts of the world. Her love for women is evident as she teaches the truth of God’s Word clearly, passionately, and with the color and enthusiasm only Kris can bring. Her constant desire is to equip women to know God intimately and to live joyous, purposeful lives in the light of Scripture, for His glory. To her great delight, her 3 children and their spouses each love the Lord and faithfully serve Him. And her 3 grandsons are the joys of her life!

She was raised in a Christian home and was radically changed by Jesus Christ when she was 15. When the Holy Spirit revealed her sin, He showed her there was no remedy but Christ’s finished work for her on the cross. She was deeply wounded by her carelessness toward such a wonderful Savior so in mourning and repentance she pledge the rest of her life to living for Him. And here she is nearly 42 years later, still finding Him to be her Beloved Lord.

Her favorite ministry is serving her favorite pastor and husband, Dr. Rick Goertzen in the churches God has called them to in Birmingham, New Orleans, Los Angeles, and Kansas. While Rick attended the Master’s Seminary, she was discipled by her friend and mentor Elizabeth George, completed the Seminary Wives Training while dressing movie stars in beaded gowns!

Kris is currently serving as Women’s Ministry Director here at Shades Mountain Community Church in Hoover, AL, where her husband is Lead Pastor. She is also equipping the next generation of Titus Two women women by speaking at retreats and conferences as well as offering her growing suite of online Bible studies.

If you’d like to stay in touch with Kris, like her Facebook page, subscribe to her YouTube channel or follow her on Instagram. But, if it’s spiritual mentoring you long for, grab her book on Amazon, Extreme Spiritual Makeover, Reflecting the Heart of Christ in My Priorities. This 11-week discipleship manual comes with 5 free video lessons to equip every woman to fulfill God’s high calling for her.
