Christen has served with Young Life’s Capernaum ministry since her college years as a volunteer and on full time staff for 13 years, developing Capernaum ministry in Fresno, California, throughout Latin America and most recently serving as the Transition Specialist with the mission wide Capernaum team and Capernaum Coordinator for the Southwestern Division of the US. With an undergraduate degree from California State University, Fresno in Recreation Therapy and a graduate degree from Fuller Theological Seminary in Global Leadership, she feels each piece of her education has been orchestrated by God for what He has called her to do in ministry. Christen is a leader, speaker, and an advocate, but mostly she would say she has been privileged to be shaped by her friends with disabilities since childhood and she’s passionate about sharing those friends with the Church and the world! Christian and her Peruvian husband live in Clovis, California and have a delightful 1 year old daughter. Christen can be reached at chosencrm@gmail.com.





2016 Workshops

Special Needs: I (Don’t) Want to Grow Up

3/4/2016

Have you ever wondered what life looks like for our friends with disabilities, as they become adults? The social, emotional, and life changes that come with transition out of educational and even vocational programming create incredible opportunities for the Church to engage our friends as vital members of the body who are invited, celebrated and needed. I will share personal experiences from my work with Young Life Capernaum to explore how we might bridge relationships and smooth this transition for our friends and their families by linking arms with the Church to welcome and engage a part of the community that is often completely missed! We’ll share a few models for what this can look like as well as offer resources to equip you and your team.
