Kathleen Lovelady serves with Ratio Christi as the Assistant to the President and also as Volunteer Coordinator. She is responsible for scheduling, planning, and coordinating training for Ratio Christi volunteers.
Raised in Southern California, she began working for a Department of Defense contractor which took her from California to Missouri and then to Illinois.
She is a cum laude graduate from National University in California with a B.S. in Business Administration. She earned a Masters in Project Management from Keller Graduate School of Management in Illinois. Kathleen is a licensed minister who attended Charis Bible College, Chicago’s Bible Training Program and School of Practical Ministry. After graduation, she served as an apprentice at Charis for one year learning the practical side of running a Bible College.
After twenty-nine years of working for the same company, she retired and moved from the Chicago area to Alabama, near Birmingham where she lives with her husband, Eddie. Kathleen has a passion to serve the Lord and while looking for a ministry in which to serve, she was introduced to Ratio Christi. “I love Ratio Christi’s evangelistic movement and vision to equip Christian students with the knowledge and skills necessary to understand and defend their faith against today’s anti-Christian sentiment.”
She also enjoys encouraging new Christians and is a Discipleship Coach for the Billy Graham Evangelical Association.
Growing up in the church Kathleen accepted the Lord as her Savior at the age of eight, but as a young adult she wandered from her faith. Fifteen years later, the Lord brought her back into the fold by way of the book Left Behind. After reading the book she was shocked into realization that she didn’t want to be left behind. She had a real change of heart at that time. Looking back, she realized the Lord never left her during her time of wandering, but had been working to bring her back.
