Co-Founder, FAM - Family & Marriage Ministries
Kerri’s passion, born out of her own story of grace, is for men and women to walk in the fullness and freedom of their created design. Her passion is to encourage you to address the lies, shame and fear that invade your life on a daily basis. Her aim is to challenge and equip you to boldly and strategically claim Truth by learning to use the Word of God as your sword.
Kerri has a BA in Communication Arts from Cedarville University in Cedarville, OH and a MA in Specialized Ministry from Western Seminary in Portland, OR. After completing her graduate studies she served as the Director of Enrollment, the Dean of Women, and then as the Director of Ministry Relations at Western Seminary.
Kerri is the founder and President of UNFETTERED MINISTRIES. As a counselor she witnesses the Power that raised Jesus Christ from the dead alive in those who were once defeated, hopeless, addicted and in spiritual bondage on a daily basis. On weekends she shares that same power through the Word of God, at retreats and conferences around the nation. Currently, she resides in northern California.
