Kathryn was born in January 1962 in Ontario, Canada. She grew up on a farm a couple of hours outside of Toronto. After her father passed away in 1973, her mother decided to take Kathryn and her sister and move to Hawaii.
Though Kathryn was raised in a Congregational church she didn’t come to know Christ personally until her university years in Honolulu. It was there that a friend invited her to a meeting to listen to an evangelist. After that meeting Kathryn gave her whole heart to Jesus and pledged herself to follow Him.
Kathryn graduated from the University of Hawaii with a major in Communications and a strong interest in politics. She worked for a brief time as church administrator before accepting a position in Gainesville, Florida of executive assistant to the president of Maranatha Christian Churches in 1986.
Two years after moving to Florida Kathryn met Robert and they were married in July of 1988.
After her marriage to Robert, Kathryn joined him in Paris, France and assisted in the planting of the church of the Good Shepherd in January 1991.
Since that day Kathryn has been instrumental in the development of the ministry in France. Besides homeschooling two children for a number of years Kathryn has also developed a nationally recognized worship ministry. She has co-organized the fellowship of pastors’ wives in Paris for many years and currently co-chairs the steering committee for Paris on Fire, an inter-church worship initiative.
Kathryn established a school of worship in 2004. She is a recognized song writer in France and has co-authored a pre-marital counseling manual with her husband.
She is an oft invited speaker at Women’s Aglow and other such conferences.
