Speaker: Pastor Kristen Cervantes

Better known as “Pastor Kris”, Kris Cervantes has served as UUWaco’s minister since September 2014. She is a lifelong UU and native Texan. She also serves the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Waco, Texas. She received her MDiv (with honors) and a certificate in Sexual and Gender Justice Studies from Brite Divinity School in Fort Worth. She serves on the board of the Greater Waco Interfaith Conference and the Clergy Advisory Board for Planned Parenthood of Central Texas. Kris lives in a little brick house with her husband Robert, son Gabriel (17), and a variety of four-legged family members, as well as lots of books (and dog hair)! Her older son Jack (19) studies print-making and fine arts at UNT. In her spare time, Kris reads (everything), paints, sings, talks to her garden, and drinks far too much coffee with friends.
