Kris Goertzen, the wife of Shades Mountain Community Church pastor, has passed away on Thursday, the 27th of April 2023.
Kris Goertzen led small groups of women and taught and wrote her own Bible studies, and went to women’s conferences in other countries.
Kris Goertzen Cause of death, How did Kris Goertzen die?
She battled Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) for two years before she passed away. Kris saw her diagnosis as a way to honour God and bring people into His kingdom.
She worked in sales, marketing, writing ads, and putting sparkly dresses on movie stars.
She completed The Master’s Seminary Wives Discipleship Program in Los Angeles after taking a couple of classes at Southeastern Bible College in Birmingham.
Kris was taught by Elizabeth George, and her advice has helped Kris every day for more than 20 years.
Kris promised God that she would never let another woman within her reach be as desperate for a spiritual friend and guide as she had been.
Kris turned a nearly dead women’s ministry into a booming ministry with yearly conferences, ongoing Bible studies and small groups, and a place for women to share their needs and pray for each other. She has accomplished more than just her work at SMC.
