Rev. Kristin Clark-Banks- Pastor
Kristin loves connecting with people and helping them along in their spiritual journeys with God. Before coming on as Senior Pastor at Forest Hills UMC, Kristin served as Associate Pastor at Belle Meade UMC and as minister of Children and Families at Christ UMC in Franklin. A native Nashvillian, Kristin grew up in the Old Hickory area. She graduated from Trevecca Nazarene University and earned her Master of Divinity from Duke Divinity School. Her love for the Church is revealed in her passion for sharing the gift of God’s presence with those around her. She is occasionally known for laughing at her own jokes before telling the punchline. She enjoys reading, traveling, experiencing and cooking delicious food, strives to run with her running group as much as possible, and belts out Broadway tunes at the drop of a hat--Alexander Hamilton and Wicked are always on the tip of her tongue. She especially loves spending time with her husband, Brady, and her wild and woolly son, Thaddeus.
