Kristen Raine graduated from Pennsville High School, St. Joseph’s University and is currently enrolled at Wesley Biblical Seminary pursuing her Masters of Divinity. She is looking forward to completley that degree in May of 2024. Although Kristen is a published biochemist, God turned her professional life in an entirely different direction, that of ministry. Kristen has been on staff at Sharptown since 2007. For several years, she served as the Director of Children’s Ministry. Her role expanded in 2014 to Director of Ministries, then again in 2021 to Associate Pastor. Kristen offers leadership and oversight for many of Sharptown’s ministries, teaches and preaches regularly and serves any way needed. She has a huge heart for people, is a gifted administrator, an excellent teacher and a blessed part of Sharptown’s staff.
She resides in Pennsville with her husband, RJ, who is instrumental in her success in ministry through his support and help. She has amazing young adult children, Joey, Noah, David and Gracie, a fabulous daughter in law, Becca (married to Joey) and another soon to be fabulous daughter in law, Kaila (engaged to Noah).
Kristen is super busy with ministry, family and school responsibilities and hardly has any down time, but when she does, she loves to float in her pool, relax in their hot tub or sit on a jersey beach! She and RJ love to host parties, picnics and get-togethers at the home that God has blessed them with.
