Meet the Author


Paul & Christie Borthwick serve on the staff of Development Associates International, a training group dedicated to the character and ministry development of leaders in the under-resourced world (www.daintl.org). Paul teaches missions at Gordon College (www.gordon.edu) and serves as an Urbana/ Missions Associate with Inter-Varsity Christian Fellowship (www.urbana.org).

Paul's ministry focuses on three priorities: mobilizing others for cross-cultural ministry, encouraging the ongoing growth of older leaders, and motivating the development of younger leaders. He serves as a resource person, teacher, speaker, and author.

Rick Warren (in Purpose-Driven Life) cites Paul's books A Mind For Missions and How To Be a World-Class Christian as resources that "should be read by every Christian."

Paul and Christie's ministry together focuses on encouraging leaders and developing "world Christians" in the church. During their twenty-two years of service on the staff of Grace Chapel (Lexington, MA) - where Paul is ordained - they coordinated over 100 short-term service teams that served all over the world. Through Development Associates International, they now spend two to four months each year in ministry in other countries, mostly in the "Global South."

Christie serves both on the staff of Development Associates International, as a microbiologist at the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, and as a private practice Christian counselor. Both Paul and Christie graduated Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary in May 2007: Paul received a Doctor of Ministry (Cross-cultural ministry) and Christie received a Master of Arts in Counseling.

Paul & Christie have been married since 1979 and live in Lexington, Massachusetts. They are members of Grace Chapel.
