Meet UGM Ambassador Kristi Kinsinger

Oct 22, 2020 2:29:46 PM

Getting involved at the Union Gospel Mission is easy - the hardest part is figuring out which of dozens of opportunities is the best fit for your calling and resources.

Kristi Kinsinger has taken advantage of many: She’s been a volunteer, mentor, financial partner, and president of UGM Auxiliary, to name a few. In all of these roles, Kristi's a natural recruiter; she's passionate about inviting others to join her in a work that is so important. "One of our mandates from Christ is to help the poor," she says.

Now, Kristi is a member of the UGM Association Board, which provides leadership and oversight for the entire UGM organization. Serving on the board is a way for her and others to bring to the cause some of their most valuable resources: time, experience, and a heart for serving.
