Shabrae Jackson Krieg is a social worker with more than 18 years of experience working in the United States and internationally. She is passionate about empowering, equipping, and co-creating with others to bring about personal and communal change. As a facilitator and practitioner, she enjoys creating community-based tools and shaping spaces for creativity through processes such as experiential learning, the expressive arts, sports, and movement-based methodologies - exploring the spaces where play and transformation can meet. Along with their son, Shabrae and her husband Jean-Luc have lived on the outskirts of Mexico City for the past twelve years. They started Urban Mosaic, an NGO that works in partnership with local people and movements to develop models for transformation and holistic development in urban poor communities. Shabrae is currently the Director of Learning and Collaboration with Servant Partners, a Coordinator with First Aid Arts, and has a Masters in Expressive Arts for Conflict Transformation & Peace-building.

She worked on staff with InterVarsity Christian Fellowship for eleven years: on the Indiana University campus for seven years and then as the national Global Urban Trek Coordinator for four years. Janet also directed the Trek teams of college students headed to Thailand to live and serve alongside the urban poor in Bangkok for many years. She now lives in San Jose, California with her husband Andy and their informal foster daughter Nayeli. She and Andy are on staff with Servant Partners as the directors of the San Jose site leading an internship of young urban ministers as well as pastoring a young church plant, Shalom Iglesia, a bilingual congregation in their low-income Latino neighborhood.

Reviews

"God has been at work in the hidden corners of the evanglical church; raising up evangelical women of color to enter the mission field again--for the sake of the preservation of the faith and the glory of God." - Lisa Sharon Harper, President and Founder of Freedom Road, LLC and author of several books, including The Very Good Gospel: How Everything Wrong can be Made Right"Voices that have echoed from the margins now burst with telling in Voices Rising, resounding with stories of women from diverse walks of life, origin, and color, sharing a common purpose of seeking first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness. Scholars, students, and laypersons alike will be inspired by the narratives of God's faithful daughters who seek to honor him by dedicating their talents and gifts to be a blessing through service. Their stories challenge us to live out our calling more fully in our lives." - Ruth Chung, Professor and Director of the Marriage
and Family Therapy Program, University of Southern California, Co-Editor of
