Born and raised in Muskegon, Michigan, Crystal moved to Chicago in 2007 to work for Nestle USA in Sales & Marketing in the greater Chicagoland area. While in Chicago for work, Crystal felt a strong call to ministry after serving in campus ministry for the past four years at Western Michigan University. Shortly after her time here in Chicago, she began her seminary work at Moody Theological Seminary and completed her Masters of Arts in Biblical Studies in 2013. Post-graduation, the desire was still in her heart to go further with her education and pursue a PhD. Crystal began her PhD in Educational Studies at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in 2016 and is completing her degree program presently.
Crystal hopes to teach as a professor and continue to work in higher education. She has a burning desire and passion to teach and lead God’s people in the local church and also in the academy.
While studying at Trinity, Crystal’s academic interests include Educational Studies, Teaching & Learning, and Innovation & Stewardship in the Local church as seen through the lens of scripture. When away from the university, Crystal enjoys spending time with her husband, Daniel, serving in ministry together at their local church, playing sports, traveling, visiting family, and relaxing outside in nature.
