About Us

Eric Dowd

Eric is focused, task-oriented, and methodical. He’s the type of guy that takes overwhelming, seemingly impossible tasks, breaks them down to achievable steps and gets things done. We are delighted to have him as the CEO, President, and Executive Director of GetRelational Ministries!

For nearly 20 years, Eric has been involved in life-changing discipleship ministry. He’s worked with kids, teens, young adults, men, parents, blended families, pastors, missionaries—you get the idea. He has founded, consulted, and nurtured several effective discipleship programs at 4 different churches over the last nine years and has seen God do incredible things through.

Eric loves using his talents to help people do what God has called them to do. 

In his spare time, he enjoys hiking, fishing, hanging out with dogs (well-trained ones that is), reading books, watching movies that engage him to think, and last but not least, spending time with his wife Kristen.

Kristin Dowd

Kristin’s contagious personality and positive outlook affect everything she does. From challenges at work to the needs she sees in the lives of others, she is always finding successful ways to overcome obstacles. We’re excited to have her serve on our team at GetRelational Ministries!


Curriculum designed to develop critical thinking skills in disciples is fundamental to our mission. As an Assistant Professor at the United States Air Force Academy, Kristin played a major role in creating a revolutionary online program that allowed students to improve their critical reading skills. That work earned her a nomination for the Outstanding Educator Award. 

Kristin loves learning new things, and she is excited to work in Uganda. Her goals are develop curriculum tailored to the Ugandan culture, improve their critical reading and thinking, and challenge them with society-changing discipleship.
