Kristen Valentine

In May 2019 Kristen graduated with her bachelor’s degree in Criminology with a minor
in History from the University of Lynchburg, (formerly Lynchburg College) a historic Disciples-related school. During her college career, she worked in several campus offices, volunteered with the Boys and Girls Club where she helped students with their homework, and was part of the Black Student Union. Her home church is Christ Temple Apostolic in Danville, Virginia which is a medium size congregation with a diverse group of people. At church, she sings in the praise and worship team and is the praise dance leader. Kristen has a passion for advocating for children, especially those who have been abused. Her end goal is to become part of the FBI, working special cases. As soon as she attended an information session about XPLOR on her campus, she knew she wanted to
be part of the program. She believes she will complete this program “a better and smarter person who is sure about my next step in life.”
