Christy grew up in Clinton, Mississippi. While in high school, she fell in love with missions through short-term trips her youth group. She received her bachelor’s degree in sociology and youth ministry from Covenant College. Shortly after graduation, she headed for an 18-month internship in Dublin, Ireland. This was her first experience meeting people from many different nations, and she was forever changed.
