Heavenly Minded - Earthly Good
Sometimes life can get so full of “stuff” that we lose our way. We forget what is really important and the great call our Savior has put on our life. The clutter of life and things consume our thoughts and our time. Come, retreat with us, and take this time away from the earthly “stuff” to get a more heavenly perspective. Our speaker, Christine Zimmerman, will share how the Lord helped her in this journey and give you hope and courage to take the steps needed to move forward unencumbered in mission and ministry.
Christine Zimmerman faithfully served as a minister's spouse for 28 years while caring for her family of four boys. She attended Geneva College where she received her K-6 teaching certificate and then Edinboro University for her Master's Degree in reading. She also took graduate-level courses at the University of Pittsburgh towards a supervisor of curriculum and instruction degree. She is an approved Conference Evangelist in the Western PA Conference of the United Methodist Church. She is a certified Christian life coach.
Christine is a teacher at heart. She has taught in many settings from working with teachers at the University of Pittsburgh to the public-school setting. She now uses her teaching abilities in new ways with the About Face Church Outreach Consultants ministry started by her and her husband, John. Christine is the heart of the ministry as she is often found mentoring individuals out of the poverty of addictions and abuse. She speaks, teaches, mentors and leads workshops that illuminate Scripture and engages the student with practical hope and real-life examples. She puts flesh upon the spiritual principles of mission and outreach that motivates the church into action. Christine enjoys camping, spending time with her husband, four boys, three daughters-in-law, and four granddaughters and sharing the love of Jesus with all whom she meets.
