Christa Naehr

What is your job?
Assistant to Kris McGee.

What are your responsibilities?
My job is pretty much to help Kris in any way I can. I do a lot of scheduling, organizing and interfacing on his behalf which allows him more focused time using his gifts to serve our church.

I met my husband, Rob, during an internship at a church outside Chicago. We were married in 2005 and in February 2012, our son Graham was born. We also have a daughter, Nora, born in 2014.

Where are you from?
I grew up in Georgia. After getting married, I moved to New Jersey, where my husband is from, and came to Kansas City in 2008.

Previous Experience?
I worked for several years as a manager at Pottery Barn and Williams Sonoma. After working too many weekends and holidays and accumulating an embarrassing amount of sale items, I decided I needed a change in pace. In 2010, I began working as an admin assistant at Crossworld, a missions sending agency headquartered in the Northland. I worked there until coming here in May 2012.

How long have you been at Redeemer?
Since January 2009.

What hobbies/interests outside of work?
Walks with my family, going to movies, playing board games, sewing, crafting and cooking.
