Kristen Barron serves Redeemer as the Pastoral Assistant to Dusty Thompson. Kristen began following Jesus as a 7th grader but really grew and developed her faith through a Navigators Bible study group as a young adult that encouraged daily time in the Word and Scripture memory, as well as accountability in community. It was here that she learned that following Jesus isn’t about rules but about the love of a Father that can never be earned. Kristen is a Lubbock native, and graduated from Texas Tech University in 1998. That same year, she married Joshua Barron. They have four children, Emmy, Caedmon, Hallie, and Cannon.
