Gabrielle Engle is a preacher, pastor and writer. She’s passionate about cultivating community in everyday life. You can often find her digging in the dirt of her gardens, hosting meals in her front yard or taking her dog, Thurman (a Goldendoodle), for a run in the neighborhood. There’s a good chance she’s cooking up a new adventure to go on and collecting stories to tell along the way. Currently, she resides in Benton Harbor, Michigan, where she is an active board member of several nonprofits related to youth and education. She also heads up an urban garden in her neighborhood. King recently acquired her Masters in Practical Theology from Indiana Wesleyan University and has spent the past four years immersed in community development and urban ministry.
