CIY brings some of the most influential speakers from across the country to deliver Biblical truths to students. The “10 Things About” series offers a behind-the-scenes introduction into the lives of these talented youth ministry veterans.

Here are 10 things you need to know about Christine Lee.


1. She was born in Hong Kong and moved to New Hampshire when she was 3.

2. She’s the middle school pastor at Pantano Christian Church in Tucson, Arizona.

3. She earned her spiritual formation degree from Lincoln Christian University in 2013.

4. She’s in love with blue Jell-O.

5. She’s always down for Ramen Noodles.

6. She can’t watch “Coco” without crying. 

7. She felt a clear calling from God into a life of Kingdom work when she was in high school – finally saying “Yes” her junior year.

8. She said being a Kingdom worker means living every day knowing that life gets to be – and is meant to be – a part of a bigger and better story than we could ever imagine. Kingdom workers respond to God's invitation to contribute to His heart that is displayed on this planet.

9. A part of the story of Elijah that speaks directly to her is the way God meets Elijah right where he's at when he fled in fear. It's easy for her to resonate with wanting to run when things get hard, and forgetting the ways God has come through in the past. Elijah's story reminds her that even in moments of struggle God is present, taking care of everything, calling out to His people, showing us who He is.

10. She hopes this summer students will hear the truth that God is near and speaking to them.  “If we quiet our hearts, we’re going to know what His voice sounds like,” she said.
