First Grace Staff

  • Kristin Green Director

    Hello! My name is Kristin Green. I am from Decatur but now live in Hillsboro. I graduated from Calhoun with a Child Development Degree. I have been in childcare since 2011. I truly love working with kids, and I am living my dream job now as the First Grace CDC Director!! I have been with Corey, my husband, since 2008. I am a big Alabama fan! Roll Tide! My favorite animal is a giraffe!

    Louise is the Interim First Grace Director when needed!

    I am a Northern Ireland native from a wee town called Portglenone. I grew up in the countryside with my Dad (Alastair), Mum (Greer), and sister (Charlotte), who shares the same birthday with me, just 6 years apart! I grew up in the church and have served in ministries since 18. I graduated from Ulster University with a Bachelor's in Business Management and have recently graduated from Memphis Theological Seminary with a Masters in Youth Ministry. I've been in the USA for 3 years working in youth ministry just up the road in Huntsville. I am so thankful that my job is telling others about Jesus, for I get to guide children and families in their faith journeys! I love to dance, sing in the car, and rewatch my favorite movies. I love quoting movies! I'll tell you this now, we will likely have a discussion about the movie, Titanic! What can I say? It was built in Northern Ireland, and fun fact: my Great Granda was a carpenter on it! Cool, right? Cracker Barrel is my favorite, and if I could go to a concert right this minute, I'd be seeing Celine Dion and Frank Sinatra! Imagine them singing a duet... WOW!!
