"Experience in Perspective- A Faith Journey Or The Unfailing Love of God in Our Lives"

by Reverend Christine Dickerson

christineRev. Christine was born in Seattle, Washington. She attended public schools, graduating from Franklin High School. She received her Bachelor of Arts from The University of Washington, the first graduate of Native American History from that University. Between her first and last classes at the U of W, Christine managed to hitchhike through Europe, lived in Hong Kong as a film editor for German Television, trained in Sound Engineering and worked for Warner Bros. Studios in Hollywood.

Returning to Seattle and initially continuing her work in film and video, she prepared to enter Law School. God had a different idea, however, and she began to feel the tug of ministry. Christine received her Masters of Divinity from Fuller Theological Seminary in 1996, and was ordained as a Minister of the Word and Sacrament to begin work as Director of Spiritual Care for Harborview Medical Center in Seattle, a Level One trauma Center. Eventually, Harborview became a ‘teaching hospital’ for Chaplains, and she moved into Congregational Ministry.

In 2011, Rev. Christine received a call to Palm Springs Presbyterian Church where she continues to serve as solo Pastor for a wonderful and increasingly diverse congregation.

"Gifts from His Heart to Yours"

Guest Speaker: Michele Telfer

michele telferBorn to non-Christian parents in Zambia, Africa, Michele grew up in neighboring Zimbabwe. She and her husband Colin married in 1983 and re-located to Botswana after less than a year. It was there, after living a life far from the Lord, they both accepted Christ.

After struggling for nine years with infertility, and an incredibly difficult first pregnancy, the Lord blessed Michele and Colin with two children, Steven and Megan, born 17 months apart.

During their 16 years in Botswana, they frequently went on Safari, often traveling alone through vast tracts of wilderness. A captivating and humorous story teller, Michele frequently uses her wide variety of life experiences to teach deep spiritual truths.

The Lord has used Michele as a Bible teacher for more than 20 years and has given her the opportunity to speak in many churches in Africa and to Christian groups in Australia, Canada and the United Kingdom, before opening the door for her to speak and serve in the United States. In addition to her speaking commitments, she currently presents weekly Bible classes at her home church.

An animated Bible teacher and graduate of CLASS (Christian Leaders, Authors and Speakers Service), Michele’s own transparency and genuine concern for others make her messages memorable and encouraging.
