  • Kristen Anderson

    assistant to the Pastor | kristen@freechurch.net

    Kristen grew up in Rochester, NY and graduated from Roberts Wesleyan College. She never thought she'd end up working for a church, but she loves it! When she's not keeping tabs on the staff, you'll find her teaching, reading, exercising, hiking with her hubby, hanging with friends and family, or spending time with her chocolate lab.
