Kristine Regehr joined us in November 2023 for a season of transition work. She is ordained by the Western District Conference and has a Master of Divinity degree in pastoral ministry from Anabaptist Mennonite Biblical Seminary (2017). Her passion for, and training in, congregations as a web of interconnected relationships helps her understand and guide us in working together for the kingdom of God. She describes herself as a “process geek” invested in how we work together, aiming for kindness and welcome, and inviting us to take courageous steps toward transparency and vulnerability.
