Welcome Kristia

Kristia joined the Fifth Ave team in early October and already her energy, experience and positive outlook has made a great impression.

"I am very excited about joining the staff at Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church and I am looking forward to working in a space that values community as much as I do."

Tell us a little bit about yourself.

“I was born and raised in Benin in West Africa, and moved to the Bronx in 2006 with my family, where I still reside today. I have a Master’s Degree in Public Administration from Baruch College, with a focus on Non-profit Management. I speak 3 languages fluently and love to travel and experience different cultures.”

What about the position of Congregational Care and Outreach Coordinator caught your attention when applying?

“I was excited about the Congregational Care and Outreach Coordinator position because I’ve always known that I want to work in an organization that is guided towards making a difference. I recognized that in Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church. More importantly, what excites me about this position is the ability to work with supporting members of the congregation, as well as providing support to the Deacons.”
