Today we're introducing a member of our board of directors, Mari Kirchner. The job of a board director in a non-profit organization can vary, but in our organization they provide oversight to make sure we are in compliance with laws, stay on mission, and help guide the direction of the organization.

What do you do for work?
I am the Global Missions Director at Pacific Crossroads Church.
Why did you choose that / How did you end up there?
I decided to go back to school to pursue a degree in intercultural studies in 2012. I had worked in corporate marketing for over a decade, and after a few global mission trips with PCC, I felt led to return to pursue my master’s degree atFuller Theological Seminary.
I started with the church as the Communications Director, and after a few different roles, I began as the global missions director in 2017.
I have a four year old daughter and two year old son who take up a lot of my time. As a family, we love being outdoors, whether at the beach or at the park. We also enjoy traveling as much as we can.
What's your favorite ice cream flavor?
Ice cream is one of my favorite things in life! I love pretty much all kinds, but have a weak spot for chocolate chip cookie dough!
