MY NAME IS CHRISTINE
I serve as the Women's Ministry Associate at The Austin Stone Community Church's Northwest congregation in Austin, Texas. I host The Ministry Wives Podcast and have authored six books, including Messy Beautiful Friendship and How to Thrive as a Pastor's Wife, as well as a Bible study with Lifeway, Seek First the Kingdom. My work has been featured on The Gospel Coalition, For The Church, and Christianity Today.
I'm married to Kyle, who is the Executive Pastor at our church. We previously served at Charlottesville Community Church in Charlottesville, VA, the church we planted in 2008.
When I'm not corralling our three boys or serving alongside my husband in ministry, I love writing and teaching the Bible. The grace of Christ upended my legalistic life over two decades ago and, ever since, I've been passionate about exploring and sharing about how that grace impacts every inch of life.
Here's how I'm doing that (and how you can join me!):
BOOKS and a BIBLE STUDY
I've authored a Bible study on the book of Matthew and several books, all of which seek to address how the gospel informs various aspects of our lives. Find out more about the books and order copies at the links below.
Messy Beautiful Friendship: Finding and Nurturing Deep and Lasting Relationship
Searching for Spring: How God Makes All Things Beautiful in Time
With All Your Heart: Living Joyfully Through Allegiance to King Jesus
Seek First the Kingdom (Bible study workbook and video teachings)
Being a ministry wife is a vocation without a job description and, let’s be honest, sometimes it seems like ministry might be easier if we did have one. If you are a ministry wife like me and are looking for hope, perspective, and a little bit of practical advice regarding your role, join me for The Ministry Wives Podcast, a production of the North American Mission Board. On the podcast, I chat with women in various ministry contexts, and we have authentic conversations about our shared joys and challenges – even the ones we’re unsure we can talk about.

TEACHING THE BIBLE
I love getting to share gospel truths with other women through my writing, but I also enjoy teaching these truths. My favorite place to teach is within my own church, but if you're looking for a speaker for your women's gathering, feel free to contact me in order to check my availability.
