Kris Linenberger

Position: Connections Ministry Associate

Kris’ ministry is to create discipleship opportunities by helping others connect within the church body, particularly through assimilation, life groups and hospitality. He and his wife, Lisa, have been attending Grace for more than 27 years. Kris holds a Master of Science in Social Work from Texas State University and served in various Grace ministries as a volunteer before joining the staff in 2017. Kris and Lisa have two daughters and two lovably noisy Goldens. He is currently pursuing a Master’s in Christian Leadership at Dallas Theological Seminary.

Spiritual Gifts: Hospitality, Mercy, Discernment

I am constantly encouraged with all the testimonies I hear from Grace congregants. My prayer is Matthew 5:14, that we continue to be the “light to the world” here in Austin. That the Spirit will continue to work on the hearts of those who drive by our campus every day and we will be ready to receive them when they walk on campus.
