Meet Christine Wald

wale-05

Christine Wald was born and raised in Minnesota. She used to love the colder climate. During the winters she could be found out on the ski hill teaching lessons until it was 40 below, but she decided it was time to move to a warmer climate when she went to college. After receiving a degree in Graphic Design from Pensacola Christian College, she moved to Illinois for six months before returning to live in Pensacola, Florida. She’s had a variety of jobs including lifeguarding, working at a group home with mentally and physically disabled adults, being an emergency responder/security officer for Caterpillar and working at Kinko’s. She went on her first Teen Missions team as a team member to Holland in 1993. After college she came back to Teen Missions as a volunteer on the Ecuador Adult Work team in 2000. Then, in the summer of 2001, she led her first team to India. Christine joined staff in January of 2002. She currently serves in the Graphics Department.

  • Wald, Christine Newsletter (Spring 2014) May 20, 2014 I know what you are going to ask, so many people have been asking...Where are you going this summer? Do you have a team yet?

But the wait is over! I am excited to announce ...
