Kristy Tillman is the Community Life Pastor at Bethel Church.
She is passionate about community, walking in the presence of Jesus, and seeing people fully empowered to be who they are called to be. Prior to coming to Bethel Church, Kristy started and led a house of prayer and community transformation ministry in Illinois, served as a youth pastor for 18 years in the Methodist and Evangelical Free Church denominations, and was a Regional Director for YouthWorks! a missions ministry based in Minneapolis.
Kristy has been on staff at Bethel for 11 years and her heart is to create a culture of authentic relationships and true kingdom family in the church. She loves to spend her free time hanging out with family (especially her two nephews Nathan and Charlie) and “restoring the land” on her 40-acre farm, Jubilee Hills, where three generations of the Tillman family and a menagerie of goats, ducks, chicken’s, dogs, and cats all call home.
Kristy is an entrepreneur, investor, and kingdom strategist who has started multiple ministries and businesses, the most recent being the Redding Revival Community, a local property company that provides housing for over 230 Redding residents.
