Flor Castellanos

Flor Castellanos

Resident

Flor moved to Austin in January after spending 14 months teaching in Thailand. Previous to Crossroads, Flor served in ministry through various leadership roles, where she developed a passion for younger generations and the marginalized. An alumni of Texas Tech, she has a hard time admitting she’s now a longhorn as she pursues her Master’s in Educational Psychology at UT, but has no problem admitting she only jogs to counterbalance her love of ice cream. During her free time you’re likely to find her either reading, or listening to podcasts with a bowl of watermelon in hand.

After graduation, they lived in California, Kansas, and Texas during Jim’s career as a computational aerodynamicist.

The mission, vision, and people attracted Jim and Debbie to Crossroads where Jim has been able to use his passion for worship music by serving on the music team and his organizational skills by being the Children’s Ministry Worship Team Leader. Jim’s hobbies include Bible study, worship music, spiritual renewal through Kairos prison ministry, yard work (butterflies, birds, flowers, lawn), and being a husband, father, and grandfather.
