Chaffee, Timothy & Christi


Timothy (originally from Klamath Falls, OR) and Christi (originally from Riverside, CA) Chaffee were married October 22, 2011 and came to the staff of Teen Missions Int’l in 2016. They are blessed with three children: Rebekah (who was born in August 2012), David (who was born in February 2014) and Brielle (who was born in February 2017).  

Timothy works in the Video Department and spends his days serving as audio engineer and with the camera and video editing crews helping with the production of evangelistic and promotional films created to introduce others to God and the ministry of Teen Missions Int’l. His responsibilities in the video department have grown to include serving with the camera filming crew.

Christi served on a Teen Missions team to Malawi in 2009 when she was 15 and is currently on maternity leave.

During spare moments, Timothy enjoys blacksmithing (metal work), fencing (sword play) and yard work.  Christi enjoys organizing and reading.
