Christen is in her fifth and final year of M.Div. studies. She is a second career student discerning God's call on her life day by day expecting to graduate in May '18. She keeps busy shifting hats between wife, mother of 3 little girls, seminarian, and educational ministry partner.
As Moderator, Christen leads the Student Assembly and serves as the primary liaison between the student body and the administration, faculty, and staff.
"I began seminary studies as an MTS student having no idea why God plucked me out of my 'set' life and career. After two years, I transferred to the M.Div. program and began the PCUSA ordination process. I am not completely sure what happens after May '18, but I am certain that God will continue to blow me away! Palmer has gifted me a sacred place to learn, grow, discern, and be transformed. I am committed to creating that same space for all students."
