National Coordinator

Krystal has served with Sue Tinworth and team through Partners in Prayer and Evangelism (PIPES) since 2017, and alongside Warwick Marsh in prayer for Australia. Krystal has also been humbled by many opportunities to engage in prayer for our First Nations people on location in Alice Springs, Uluru, Yirrakalla and Haasts Bluff.

During an encounter in Indonesia in 2017 the Lord called Krystal to support Indigenous Australians through prayer and intercession. This was a powerful time where thousands of young people gathered to pray for Revival for their home countries. Krystal was truly marked by this experience and grateful for the sponsorship and support from Warwick and Allison Marsh.

Krystal has a heart for those on the edges and borders of our communities to be saved, restored and recognized as beloved children and has a Certificate in Transformational Ministry at the Margins through The People’s Seminary in Burlington, Washington, USA.
