Meet the Team: Krystal Brummitt

This post is part of a series called “Meet the Team” introducing you to our Generation LINK staff. We hope it will help you get to know Generation LINK staff members serving around the country a little better.

Where did you graduate from and what did you study?
I graduated from Clemson University in 2010 and studied Psychology and Sociology. 

What led you to do Generation LINK?
During my junior and senior years at Clemson I attended Crosspoint. It was during these years the Lord began a work in my heart involving the local church and my love for children. After graduating college, I planned to go overseas. It was during April of my senior year that the Lord closed that door. I was a month away from graduation without a job and a plan. (But the Lord had plans!) I worked for about nine months after college (living in Clemson and attending Crosspoint) and it was then the idea of Generation LINK was brought to the table again (my love for the local church and ministry to children were colliding). I really enjoyed teaching in the two year old class at Crosspoint and from that a desire to serve with Generation LINK in the area of preschool ministry began to grow! I applied for Generation LINK and here I am, three years later!

Which location and what areas of ministry do you serve with through Generation LINK?
I serve at Crosspoint Church in Clemson, SC. I am the Assistant to the Minister for Family Equipping and Children.  (I serve in Family and Children’s Ministry.)

What are you most excited about in your area of ministry?
So much! My first year of Generation LINK I served as the Preschool Director, the second year I began giving oversight to all of our Children’s Ministry on Sunday mornings (infants-2nd grade), and this year I still primarily give oversight to Sunday mornings at Crosspoint, but I am able to help and serve in several other ways! 
Each year the Lord has grown my responsibilities in this area of ministry. My philosophy of ministry to families and children is growing each day. It is exciting to come alongside parents as they disciple their children in the home. At Crosspoint, we encourage parents in their role, while seeking to encourage them and invest in their children as well. In August 2012 we launched two new curriculums (The Gospel Story for Kids and The Gospel Project). Both of these are Christ-centered and walk children through God’s Word chronologically. It’s exciting to see the children grasp God’s plan of redemption and see that all of God’s Word is pointing to the coming King. The King that will not fall or be defeated. It’s exiting to see them hope for the coming of Christ. And we at Crosspoint pray daily that they would see their need of Jesus as their Savior. 
Being a part of this ministry in this local body is a blessing. And it’s been made possible for me through Generation LINK. The Lord has used it to put within me a desire to continue serving in this area of ministry in the local church.  
What 2-3 books have been most formative in your walk with Christ?
So many. 
A Gospel Primer by Milton Vincent
Knowing God by JI Packer
Humility By CJ Mahaney
What are your favorite things to do in your free time?
I enjoy anything I’m doing with people! I enjoy baking (particularly during this time of year because I love all things pumpkin!),  Zumba/ dancing, spending time with babies and children, playing games (board games and card games), rockin’ out to T-Swift, hiking, reading, and making people laugh (which happens to often be at my expense… but I still enjoy it!). 

What is your typical coffee shop order?
Ohh I have to say the Pumpkin Spice Latte! What’s better than a grande, extra hot, pumpkin spice latte shared with a friend this time of year? Not much!
