In Loving Memory of Kristy Rutter

The Slingshot family lost an amazing Associate this week to cancer. Kristy Rutter impacted so many of us with her contagious love for Jesus and joyful approach to ministry. We are saddened by the loss of our friend, but rejoicing in knowing that Kristy is with her greatest ministry partner now. Kristy’s presence just made everything better. We will miss the way she served the Church and left her mark on everyone she met.

Kristy was an expert with helping churches think through their multisite needs and solutions. Only a handful of people could do what Kristy did and her impact and unique call to ministry served to expand the Kingdom in new and innovative ways. Kristy was a gift and we loved having her on our team. Her energy and spirit were contagious and kept us going.


Kristy lived in Elgin, IL and was most proud of her role as wife to Mike and mom to Holland and Jorie. Kristy will be missed by the many she served and loved.
