Rev. Kristy Manion

Minister of Pastoral Care

(616) 454-7204

I serve as LaGrave’s Minister of Discipleship. My job is to help people watch for and participate in the work God is doing as he grows them up in Jesus. I enjoy developing resources for personal or group study, helping people connect with one another, and leading worship. Feel free to stop by and visit with me—I’d love that! Before I came to LaGrave, I worked as a corporate chaplain and as a program manager in higher education. I studied English and Religion at Calvin College and earned an M.Div. at Calvin Theological Seminary. I am married to Josh, and together we are raising two sons and a daughter. As a family we like to play board games—Settlers of Catan and Dominos are current favorites—and explore God’s creation together. Extending grace to one another (and to ourselves) is a key practice in our house as we travel through life as a family relying on our gracious God.


The number of cities I’ve called home: Denver, Farmington Hills, and Grand Rapids.


The number of nieces and nephews (including great-neices and nephews) that I have.


The number of years I’ve lived in my current home–the longest in one place in my life.
