Kirsten Arding; Director of Short Term Missions at Mission:Europe

Kirsten was called to missions at the young age of nine when she was given a prophecy that she would serve overseas.Throughout her youth, she went on several missions trips that ignited her passion for the mission field. She spent four years at Summit Pacific College where she received her Bachelor of Arts majoring in Intercultural Studies.

On one of the short term mission trips, she travelled to Spain with Next Level International (NLI) to work with several of the church planting projects. Two years later, she came back to work with NLI for three months as an intern where God opened her eyes to the great needs of Europe. Two years after that, she came on as full-time staff with Mission: Europe as the Short Term Missions Director and the personal assistant to the Director of Mission: Europe.
