At CRISTA, “Building Leaders” is one of the guiding principles that drives the way we operate and defines who we are. The focus on leadership is seen at all levels of the organization, including our senior leaders.

The Board of Trustees provides support and governance to the entire CRISTA Ministries family. They meet tri-annually as a full group and regularly as subgroups designated to individual ministries and initiatives within CRISTA. The CRISTA Ministry Council meets on a recurring basis and is comprised of the leaders that manage the various ministries and resource departments within the organization.
