That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into Him in all things, which is the head, even Christ (Ephesians 4:14-15):

Let’s Begin the Process!

Assessment & Mission Statement:

We begin with prayerful brainstorming to create your mission statement of a summary of your goals based on your insights and values, and identify your current status—the state of your spirit, soul and body (1Thessalonians 5:23).

Visioning & Action Plan:

We will focus on discovering your vision and your short- and long-term goals (Proverbs 29:18). With a clear picture of where you are being led by God to do the will of God in the near future, we will map out your journey from a scripturally biblical perspective.

To make the learning process more beneficial and assure our biblical approach is successful, we will present individualized teachings from the Bible in class, and available also online, with customized materials, exercises, activities, and self-evaluations to highlight specific areas of opportunity for increased effectiveness (2Corinthians 13:5: Hebrews 4:12).

Christine Carpenter
Christian Discipler

Christine is bold in her faith, strong in her love, determined in her commitment to do as Jesus did, through the power of His Holy Spirit, and “go about doing good and healing all who are oppressed of the devil” (Acts 10:30). Her proclamation to others is from First Peter 2:9, “But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should show forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.”

She believes that when we let the Holy Spirit lead and guide us into all truth we begin to see the hidden gems in the treasure chest of our Holy Book. Then, as we study Scripture, we find that we too demonstrate biblical truths that enrich our life before God, and lives of those around us. Her personal mission in life is to share with anyone she can all the good news of the gospel of Christ and the Kingdom of God that has set her free: spirit, soul and body.

Christine is author of several secular and religious non-fiction books. She is also a presenter at conferences, seminars, workshops, and retreats. Her presentations and materials integrate biblical truths, Christian virtues, self-esteem enhancers, as well as effective communication and relationship skill building.

Christine became an ordained minister in 1979. Her ministerial training includes Bible school and seminary. Her church work experience includes prominent denominations and inter- and non-denominational ministries in Oregon, Texas, Florida and Kentucky.

Since 1995, Christine has been Pastor and Director of Christian Women’s Ministries, an interdenominational Christian ministry enhancing the spiritual lives of women, girls, and their families. Besides pastoral responsibilities, her ministry includes researching, writing and presenting programs and materials focusing on Scripture and its practical use in everyday life. She currently serves as director and facilitator of the Pathways 2 Permanent Health project and Coming of Age in Christ program.

Most recently, she has been developing media for broadcast and distribution. One project focuses on “Coming of Age in Christ.” The free classes are offered to everyone interested in growing their faith in Christ to fulfill their godly purpose. Developed print and media, as well as other materials are distributed for free to individuals and may be obtained by download or through small group gatherings.

Christine received her Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees in Speech Communication from Oregon State University and Portland State University, respectively. She minored in Religion and received a 30-credit-hours Certificate in Women’s Studies, as well as a training certificate to instruct for the Virtues Project. She is also trained to instruct DiSC.

Christine and her husband of 30 years live near her 97-year-old mother on the Oregon Coast. Christine’s three grown children all have families, making her a grandmother of eight and a great-grandmother of three.
