Kristi McLelland has been in full-time ministry for the last 25 years, including 16 years as a Professor of Biblical Studies at Williamson College. She is the Founder and Executive Director of New Lens Biblical Studies, a biblical study trip ministry that takes teams to Israel, Turkey, Greece and Italy. Kristi's specialty in biblical teaching is to serve her students and the western Church as a biblical culturalist - teaching the Bible in its original historical, cultural, geographic and linguistic context.
She is also the author of a Lifeway women's Bible Study called "Jesus & Women" that was released in March 2020. Her new study, "The Gospel on the Ground: The Grit & Glory of the Early Church in Acts" releases in May 2022 - both women's study and teen girls' study.
