Office Manager

Office Manager, Kristina Davis, is often the first voice you hear when you make a call to the GCA Church. She is a very caring person and loves to converse with fellow members of the church and participate in youth groups and events.

Kristina grew up in Alabama but fell in love with GCA when she attended the academy as a student. She is a proud alumni of GCA. She went on to enroll in Southern Adventist University where she met the love of her life, Dave and married him a few years into college. Since then she has been a devoted stay home mom to four wonderful children, Ashley, Abigail, Alli and Josh.  She  has spent her most of her time being active in her children’s lives by serving on multiple positions on the school board and volunteering in most of their school events.

She loves to spend time with her family, baking, and socializing with friends.
