We know we are to “love our neighbors,” but what does it look like to love the actual neighbors who live around us? In today’s world, it’s easy to doubt we have what it takes to reach our neighbors for Christ. Chris and Elizabeth McKinney debunk that myth and about discovering God’s purpose for where He’s placed us. The McKinneys explain how to practice the art of neighboring.
Chris and Elizabeth McKinney live in Columbia, Missouri with their four daughters and a Pomeranian. They work for Cru City and serve as associate staff at their church, The Crossing. They write, speak, and are passionate about helping people love their next-door neighbors.
Chris grew up in Budapest Hungary and came back to attend Kansas State University. After graduating, he joined staff with Cru to do campus ministry at the University of Missouri. While directing the ministry, he earned his MDiv. from Covenant Theological Seminary. In his spare time he also enjoys his Chemex, cooking, and watching football.
Elizabeth graduated from Miami University, where she studied Comparative Religion. Now her world revolves around lovies, princess dresses and wiping little hands. She is a loud-yelling soccer mom who loves to bring artistry into motherhood through making birthday cakes and coordinating Disney Halloween costumes.
