Van Tiem, Drew & Christine
Drew and Christine met while working together on a team in Salford, England. After two years there, they both returned to the Chicago area and were married a year later. Their plan was always to return to United Kingdom to do mission in an urban environment. Thus, they are extremely thankful and pleased to be working in Edinburgh, a fantastic city they love more and more as time goes on. They have a lot of similar interests – reading, hiking, cooking, history, and board games. But they have dissimilar interests, too – Christine enjoys knitting and running and Drew enjoys hockey and writing. They moved to Edinburgh in Spring 2013 and are working to develop new expressions of church and Christian community, alongside existing churches and community projects. Their daughter was born in December 2014 and brings much joy to their lives!
