Christine Cross grew up in Luzern, Switzerland. Her parents lived on faith and prayer, volunteering their time to support “Moral Re-Armament” – now “Initiatives of Change,” an international spiritual movement to promote peace and reconciliation. After graduating with a degree in Business Administration, Christine joined “Initiatives of Change,” serving for 14 years in England, Australia, India, France, Taiwan and Switzerland. She quickly developed a passion for languages. Christine’s responsibilities included leading international conferences, public speaking, administrative support, cooking for 40, and helping to run community homes with people from around the world. Christine and her husband, Jon, an aviation lawyer, have two daughters in high school.
In her spare time, Christine enjoys serving as secretary for their homeowner’s association, hiking, photography, and hosting family and friends.
