Kristina was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri.  She and her husband Marty have two truly wonderful teenagers, Jackson and Johanna.  Kristina graduated from the University of Missouri-Columbia with a degree in Psychology.

Kristina brings a tremendous amount of heart and experience to our Evergreen team.  Having served in Children’s Ministry over their years together, she and Marty founded the Children’s Ministry Expo.  The expo is a one day training event for anyone in children’s ministry–pastors, teachers, volunteers and parents.  It includes an exhibit hall packed with resources to help reach kids for Christ.

Her goal as Director of Family Life-Preschool is to come alongside parents in their role as spiritual leaders in their homes.  Kristina wants to support parents by coordinating sound teaching each week for their children, providing ideas and resources to use at home and offering training to raise godly kids.

The Linsons enjoy family time, even when it means traveling to watch Jackson row in a regatta or sitting in the bleachers to cheer on Johanna’s volleyball team.  Kristina loves spending time with family & friends, especially in a game of Pictionary, laser tag or some form of silly charades.  But her favorite pastime is relaxing with a massage and eating fine chocolate!

Something you might not know about Kristina?   She met Marty in Laguna Nigel, CA when she was 33 years old.
