Crystal lives in the hometown she grew up in, Midlothian, TX. Her background is a blend of corporate recruiting, stay-at-home-mom, church ministry, and nonprofit management. She has served as a care & compassion ministry pastor and hospitality director in her home church. For over 10 years Crystal has been active in her local community event planning, volunteering, & organizing many local charitable events. With her contagious compassion for people she always finds ways to connect anyone who knows her to do the same. Crystal loves working with teens and is passionate about encouraging and empowering others to reach their God given purpose- connecting with others, unlocking callings, and mobilizing people make a difference and to be the hands and feet of Jesus to the world around us. She is thrilled to take on this new adventure at Mentors Care and looks forward to serving the students at Advantage Academy Grand Prairie East.
Crystal is married to Monty Gather and together they have 3 kids ( Kayli-21, Jade-17, Jet-13 ) and 3 dogs (Tinkerbelle, Harley, & Max). They enjoy outdoor adventures especially if they involve sunshine & water, love a good family road trip, movie nights & popcorn, and taco Tuesdays!”
