Kristin Ragsdale was born and raised in Lawton, OK. After graduating from Oklahoma University and becoming a Dr of Pharmacy, she met and married John Ragsdale. Together they set out to pursue God’s call on their lives. She has been in
full-time ministry since 1993, nine of those years as a part of the Pastoral Staff at PromiseLand Church in Austin, TX. During this time, she was the Director of Guest Relations, Assimilation and New Members. In 2003, God placed a desire in the Ragsdales’ hearts to launch a global, itinerant ministry. They now live in Nashville, TN with their two sons, Evan and Davis. Kristin has a burning desire to help people find their place in Christ. Combining her experience as a wife, mother, pastor, and medical professional, Kristin has the ability to minister on many levels. Kristin’s honest heart and passion for God’s presence will move you to know Jesus more than ever before.
