About Our Speaker:
Shortly after obtaining a bachelor’s degree in pastoral studies, Helen Stringer came to realize she could no longer support any religious ideologies. She redirected her passion for community and helping others by working as a center director and counselor for a local nonprofit that assists young families in crisis. Simultaneously, she completed her master’s degree in human services with a graduate certificate in professional counseling.
Now, Helen is bringing her training and passion for community to Oasis with a desire to bring together secular individuals and families who don’t fit in church. In early 2014, she founded and now serves as the executive director of Kansas City Oasis, a secular alternative to faith-based community. She also co-founded and serves as the president of the Oasis Network, the affiliate organization that helps to launch and support Oasis communities around the country.
Helen also enjoys working an entrepreneur and currently owns and operates the highest-rated professional organizing company in the Kansas City metro area.
