We’re excited to have a new director of our Heart program, Crystal McGowen!

“I’m brand new to the First Image family and am very excited to be the new Director of Heart. I love to chat about forgiveness, spiritual formation, and all things culture.

I’ve moved over twenty times including five states and three countries, I think haggis is actually quite tasty, and I’m afraid of heights. I try hard to find time to slow down, be creative, and if I had a chance, I’d love to get into woodworking and carpentry.

I’ve been married for sixteen years and have two girls, ages thirteen and ten. I’m a student at Portland Seminary working towards a degree in Spiritual Direction, and love to get outside and hike, no matter what the weather.”

Having joined the First Image team, Crystal is currently working on a new email newsletter for Heart! Be sure to subscribe to keep up with events, testimonies, volunteer opportunities, and the needs of this ministry to post-abortive women.
