CDR Joe & CDR Kristi Chiaravallotti, USN (Ret.)
Joe and Kristi’s region of OCF ministry spans from Pennsylvania and New Jersey down to Virginia and a small part of coastal North Carolina, and everything in between. Their ministry role is to have a heart of a shepherd who develops, grows, and sustains relationships with OCF members, chaplains, and ministry co-laborers.
Joe and Kristi met each other in 1986, while they were both Ensigns in the Navy. They were married in 1988 and have been OCF members since 1995. For the last few years, they have been serving as OCF Local Leaders for the Walter Reed NMMC military community, as well as Area Coordinators in the National Capital Region, and also on the White Sulphur Springs Advisory Committee.
While in the Navy, Joe served a surface warfare officer and Kristi served as a Navy nurse. They currently reside in Silver Spring, MD. They have five adult children, including their two daughters-in-law which they consider their children, three grandchildren, and one grandchild on the way.
