Minister of the Word

Rev. Christine Gilbert earned a Bachelor of Arts from Hope College and a Masters of Divinity from Western Theological Seminary, both in Holland Michigan. Since ordination, Christine has served as a Congregational Minister and an editor on the Seasons of the Spirit development team.

Christine has a heart for worship and life-long faith formation. She often uses the arts to engage faith — her own and others. She is currently enrolled in the Spiritual Director’s Course at the Living Well Centre in Melbourne.

Christine is an avid reader and writer, especially historical novels and poetry. She loves to explore nature, walk labyrinths, and travel wherever — especially with her husband Sean Gilbert. They share a blended family comprised of five children and one grandchild.
