Kirsten Wilson is a creative and engaging communicator who lives at the intersection of faith, story, and relationship. In her work as a college instructor, a retreat and conference speaker, and an Enneagram coach, Kirsten combines the scholarship of a seminary grad, the eye of an artist/storyteller, and the authenticity of a recovery ministry leader.
Kirsten teaches at Colorado Christian University, as an affiliate faculty member in the College of Adult and Graduate Studies. As part of the School of Biblical and Theological Studies, she teaches introductory classes in both the Old Testament and the New Testament. She also teaches courses for incoming students, focusing on issues of vocation and integration of faith and academics. In addition, Kirsten serves as a mentor for new faculty, walking with them through their first courses at CCU.
As a speaker, Kirsten helps people step into God’s story, and in the process discover their own. As an Enneagram coach, Kirsten guides people through an exploration of their personality type and teaches them to use the Enneagram as a trail guide for walking with God on the path to health and growth.
Prior to moving to Colorado in 2008, Kirsten was on staff at LifePoint Church in northern Nevada. While there, she served on both the arts team and the teaching team.
Kirsten earned a Master of Divinity degree with an emphasis in Teaching and Exposition from the International School of Theology in Arrowhead Springs, CA. Upon graduation, she received awards both for preaching and for creative biblical thinking. Her undergraduate degree is from the University of California, Irvine, where she received a B.A. in Humanities, combining studies in English, Spanish, Classical Greek, and Linguistics.
Left to her own devices, you’re likely to find Kirsten curled up with a good book and a handful of m&m’s, walking the open space trails near her home, or working on her book in the corner booth of a local McDonald’s.
Kirsten has been married to her husband, Steve, for 27 years. They have two children: a college student and a high school senior. They also have a golden doodle puppy named Watson, who is a service dog in training.
