Welcome Guest Speaker: Rev. Kristi Blankman
Rev. Kristi Click Blankman is a native of Dallas, TX. When high school graduation rolled around, her love of the Texas hill country and Presbyterian upbringing took her to Schreiner University in Kerrville where she double majored in Psychology and Religion. In the fall of 2009, Kristi began her studies at Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary. During that time, she took a year off to serve in the highlands of Guatemala as a Young Adult Volunteer (a PCUSA program through Presbyterian World Mission). While in Guatemala, Kristi applied to The University of Texas for a Masters of Science in Social Work. When she returned stateside in the fall of 2012, she began her studies there concurrently with her Divinity degree. Kristi graduated in May of 2014 with her MDiv and MSSW. From there, she served as Associate Pastor for Pastoral Care and Mission at Spring Branch Presbyterian church from July 2014 to 2017 and feels that her call is to empower individuals to proclaim the Good News of Christ and equip the Church for concern and service to the life of the human community. Kristi joined the staff at Presbytery of New Covenant as Coordinator of Youth Ministries in 2017. This August, Kristi will celebrate five years of marriage with her husband Wes. They have a young daughter, Ava, and live in Magnolia. In her spare time, when Kristi's not at the beck and call of Ava or wrangling teenagers, she enjoys running, reading, cooking, and playing with her two yellow labs.
