    So how did Juli become Founder & President of SISTER Ministries, Inc.? In Rick Warren’s book, The Purpose Driven Life, he tells us, “God wants you to have a Christ-like ministry on earth. That means other people are going to find healing in your wounds. Your greatest life message and your most effective ministry will come out of your deepest hurts. The things you’re most embarrassed about, most ashamed of, and most reluctant to share are the very tools God can use most powerfully to heal others.”  Follow this link to learn more about Juli's Story  and the life message that God is using to most powerfully heal others.

  • Christina Kimbrel

    SISTER Messenger Group - Devotional Leader

    The SISTER Messenger Group started at the beginning of Covid-19 as a means to stay in touch with each other in a private group setting outside of our Zoom Meetings. At that time Christina on her own accord used the messenger group to post daily devotions Monday through Friday. With this additional level in which to minister to the SISTER's, these devotions serve to keep us knitted together daily in God's Word. 

    Christina first joined SISTER Ministries in December 2018 on the same day of her release.  Christina has always had a servant heart and has served in the ministry almost from day one - at first Christina served by baking for monthly birthday celebrations and prepared event meals for our weekly support meeting. Most recently, Christina was our mystery guest speaker at our 2021 Christmas kick-off.  Christina is the mother of two daughters and newlywed to Henry. Christina is also a published writer for Victorious Living Magazine.
