We are Benjamin and Corrie Giffone. Until recently, we served at LCC International University, a Christian liberal arts university located on the coast of the Baltic Sea in western Lithuania. Together with our two children, Daniel and Elizabeth, we were missionaries, funded by churches and individual donors in the USA and Canada.
We are currently in a time of transition (August–November 2022), from missions in Eastern Europe, to parish ministry in Western Pennsylvania. You can read about our current situation here (more details in the weeks to come).
Benj served as a member of the faculty of LCC, teaching mainly courses in Old Testament and biblical languages. He blogs at thinkhardthinkwell.com, where you can also find links to his scholarly articles and presentations.
Corrie, in addition to serving as a full-time mom, mentored students through various extracurricular programs at LCC, led a choir, taught piano lessons, and taught in the evening English programs. She holds bachelor’s degrees in both biblical studies and music education, and earned a master’s degree in TESOL at LCC.
Benj is an ordained minister in ECO: A Covenant Order of Evangelical Presbyterians.
