In May 2011, the Center for Youth Ministry Training hired Kris Konsowitz as the Memphis Regional Director. Serving in this role, Kris will be able to make better connections and stronger relationships with churches in the West Tennessee, Eastern Arkansas, and Northern Mississippi areas.
Kris has been serving as a coach for CYMT for the past two years. When she is not working for CYMT, she is the Director of Youth Ministries and Young Adults at Collierville United Methodist Church in Collierville, Tennessee. She is married to Bob, and they have three children: Melissa, Chris, and Laura.
We are excited about Kris joining our staff in a broader role!
Olivia Keffer and Makenzie Knowlden have been friends since the beginning of their CYMT graduate residence journey, and this friendship has turned out to be one of the things that helped them make it to graduation day. Their story is one of affirming fellowship between two women who, despite living in different cities, helped each other answer their call to youth ministry.
