The Rev Kathleen Christopher
The Rev Kathleen ChristopherFounder & Executive Director
The Rev. Kathleen Christopher is an ordained priest in the Anglican Church of North America, Diocese of the Mid-Atlantic. She currently serves as the Director of the Healing and Prayer Ministries at The Falls Church Anglican in Falls Church, Virginia. Having experienced first-hand the transformational power of God’s healing in her life and witnessed miracles in the lives of others, Kathleen desires above all to bring the power of healing of body and soul through Jesus Christ to all who need it, and especially to raise up other healing ministers throughout the universal Church. Beginning in 1995, Kathleen has received training from many well-known and respected ministers of Christian healing and is experienced with a variety of different models of healing prayer; she has a special gifting in the area of spiritual warfare and deliverance. Kathleen has experience in both domestic and foreign missions.

Originally having pursued a career in the area of archaeology, Kathleen received a Master’s degree in Divinity from VTS in 2000; she also holds an M.A. in Classical Archaeology from the U. of Penn, and a B.A. in Classical Languages from St. Louis University. Prior to hearing God’s call to ministry, she worked for the Smithsonian Institution for 10 years as the Reference Archivist for the National Anthropological Archives.

Kathleen lives in Northern Virginia with two extremely affectionate cats, gardens in her (rare!) spare time and retains an interest in archaeology and other arcane topics. She is the proud mother of two adult children and four beautiful grandchildren.

Lynn Nelson
Lynn NelsonProgram Coordinator
Lynn Nelson has sought out Bible-believing churches with a focus on prayer wherever she has lived throughout her adult life. Her first introduction to Christian healing prayer was through a class on healing prayer at The Falls Church Anglican in 2009-2010. Jesus began healing Lynn’s inner and emotional wounds during that class and she’s continued taking healing classes, workshops and attending conferences ever since.

Lynn joined the staff of TFCA in 2011 and serves as the Program Coordinator for the Healing and Prayer Ministries. Previously, Lynn developed and supported a variety of Christian programs for women and girls of which prayer was a vital component, including a women’s Titus 2 Mentoring program and a Children’s Church program in New York City.

Lynn is married to John, and they’ve been attending TFCA since 2006. They have two daughters and an adorable sheltie. The Lord has developed the spiritual gifts of “helps” (1 Cor 12:28) and leadership in John and Lynn, and in their thirty-four years of marriage, He has called them to undergird three young churches across the U.S. utilizing these skills. It is their passion to serve the church body and honor Jesus Christ.
Outside of the church, Lynn is a Professional Events and Wedding Coordinator and a Professional Clothing Designer specializing in customized wedding attire. She graduated from the Fashion Institute of Technology with top honors and Purdue University. She also completed her coursework for the Certified Meeting Planner, CMP, certification, and she heads up the TFCA Wedding Ministry.
