Kristi McClellan is a contract Grant Writer for several non-profit organizations. She began working with the Girl Scouts of Southern Alabama in 2002, overseeing its grant-funded outreach programs. She concluded this work in 2010 to complete her Master’s in Public Health and has since worked to secure funding for nonprofit organizations and churches of all sizes, budgets, and missions. In the last few years, she has helped the Alabama-West Florida Conference of the United Methodist Church secure millions of dollars to aid long-term recovery from Hurricane Michael.
Kristi has had a heart for helping others since her youth. Her first mission trip was to assist in the recovery from Hurricane Andrew in south Florida. She was honored to be a part of a team to Tanzania in March 2019 and then enthusiastically joined the board of Tanzania Wesley Education Foundation. Kristi lives in south Alabama with her husband and three boys. She serves on the Spanish Fort High School Parent Advisory Committee and is a regular volunteer in the Chaplain's Office at the Mobile Metro Jail. She enjoys running, going to the beach, and reading.
Why does Kristi serve Wesley College? “I am excited to be part of the work that TWEF is accomplishing because I feel called to serve my sisters and brothers, regardless of where they live. Wesley College is doing important, well-planned work to strengthen individuals, families and communities in Tanzania and I am honored to play a small part in that success.”
