Wayne & Kristi Northup
Meet Our Lead Pastors
Wayne and Kristi met the first day of college and were close friends, but it took Wayne four years to work up the nerve to ask her out! Married in 2000, they have traveled the country together speaking in churches, conventions, camps, and hundreds of public schools. Together they started Saints Community Church in 2011.
Wayne coaches his kids in soccer, loves to lead, is an avid Saints fan, and a champion fantasy football player. He loves to laugh but can be very serious when it comes to the priorities and mission of his life.
Kristi is a first class musician who loves all styles of music. If she hears it, she can play it. Just don’t ask her to remember the words! She is a leader in her own right and craves coffee on a daily basis.
They have three children: Libby (13 years old), Lincoln (9 years old), Levi (one year old) and a dog named Pippin.
