Jay and Teri | Catalyst International
Jay and Teri have been members of Christ Fellowship since 1997. They currently serve with Christ Fellowship through Catalysts International.
Their interest in missions began in 2002 after Jay went on his first ever short-term trip. Jay was particularly interested in work focused on the unreached people of the world, specifically the 10/40 Window and China. Jay remembers wondering “Why isn’t Christ Fellowship involved in any mission work in China?”, and it seemed like right then and there, Christ Fellowship decided to begin a strategic focus in China. After a series of short-term trips they decided to pursue long-term ministry. Jay and Teri have been living and working in China since late 2007, and their three daughters, Kailee, Jamie and Sarah, are now out of the nest and pursuing their passions in different parts of the US.
Jay and Teri work together on a team with a common vision to bring Christ’s transforming presence to centers of influence in China. Their strategy is to focus on the areas in which they are passionate and have skills: healthcare, education, family, and church.
