KERSTIN ARMSTRONG
With a M.Div. and M.A. in Counseling from Reformed Theological Seminary, Kerstin's passion is to train as many leaders as possible to lead as many women as possible to experience holistic transformation by engaging Scripture and storytelling in the context of spiritual formation grous. Holistic transformation is spiritual (vertical to God), personal (to self) and relational (horizontal to others). The goal is to grow as a disciple of Christ within a community where we value to the story of Scripture and the story that God has written and continues to write in our own life.
