Kris Swiatocho is probably the best speaker, the most encouraging and insightful communicator to singles that I have ever heard, hands down! Kris is single and really understands singleness. She has a caring heart and insightfulness because of this. I have personally known Kris for over 10 years now. She is a wonderfully talented, funny & truly gifted communicator. Our singles love it when Kris comes to our church and loves even more when attending events that she has put together and will be leading. I have had the opportunity to work with Kris on leadership for the National Singles Labor Day Retreat in North Carolina for the past ___ years. I recommend Kris Swiatocho to you & your church as a speaker, equipper, trainer or just to encourage your singles or church. She always presents the message of the gospel in an energetic way to up-lift others and Jesus.
