Foursquare Africa Grant Coordinator, Christina Bishop
Christina Bishop, a Los Angeles native, joined the Foursquare Foundation team for the same reason she joined the Foursquare movement – the cause of interdenominational and worldwide evangelism. She is honored and privileged to engage with the humble, inspiring, and dynamic “Holy Ghost-Powered” saints on the African continent, as well as to give voice to their stories among the global Foursquare family.
Christina studied Geography and Political Science at UCLA, spent her junior year abroad in the School of African and Asian Studies at The University of Sussex in England, and pursued a year of graduate studies at The King’s University. She worked in the corporate world for a number of years and served at many leadership, missions, and women’s conferences around the globe. In fact, God called her into pastoral ministry while she was living and working in Sydney, Australia. She responded by accepting a full-time position in community outreach when she returned to Los Angeles. The rest is history.
Presently, you can find her singing and playing guitar, praying and anointing people in Echo Park, and serving the Lord among the nations.
