She spent time working as a community organizer for Habitat for Humanity NYC and was formerly on staff at All Angels’ Church as the Director of Spiritual Development and Outreach. She served as a campus minister with Intervarsity Christian Fellowship at the University of Chicago and Columbia University. Christine attended the Moody Bible Institute and received her Master of Divinity and Master of Theology from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, both in Chicago. She lives in Harlem with her husband Jimmy Lee.
Interim Operations Manager
Having grown up in Indiana and Ohio, I still feel like a Midwesterner at heart (even though I’ve spent the last decade in Massachusetts, Egypt, Virginia, and New York). I began my career in a civic-education nonprofit in the Boston area, and then later moved to Egypt, where I lived and worked at a Coptic Orthodox spiritual retreat center in the desert. I have a MA in Conflict Transformation from Eastern Mennonite University, and most recently worked for L'Arche USA, supporting communities of adults with and without disabilities in the southeast US. I've spent the last few months trying to relearn Spanish, doing jigsaw puzzles, and daydreaming about all the neighborhood dogs that I'll finally get to pet once the virus lifts.
