In 1991, Kris married Duane White and has served with him in various ministries for the last 23 years, including children’s crusades and seminars, youth ministry, church planting, leadership development, micro-finance projects and leading missions teams around the world.
In February 2000, Duane and Kris launched Beyond These Shores, a missions network called to equip, empower, and engage the local church worldwide through pastors seminars, leadership training, crusades, and short-term missions trips. She helps lead many of the BTS mission teams as well as speaks at national and international teaching seminars and ministering in churches and conferences.
In April 2007, Duane and Kris planted The Bridge Church in Denton, Texas, which has seen amazing growth in its first few years and is reaching many, first time believers and touching the community. She has ministered in over 16 nations and served as a missionary to the UK.
With the motto of “Not for ourselves were we born, but for the whole world,” her special passion is to stir up faith to live beyond comfort zones to change the world! Kris, and her husband, Duane, live in Denton, Texas, with their two daughters (Kelsey & Ashton) and son (Cody).
She has a Master’s in Ministry degree in Christian Leadership from Southwestern Christian University. Some of Kris’ favorite things are endless cups of coffee, taking her dog, Winston, for walks, looking for red birds and experiencing “aha moments” of God’s “exceeding, abundant and beyond imagining” love and redeeming goodness.
