We are Benjamin and Corrie Giffone. We serve 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 are missionaries, funded by churches and individual donors in the USA and Canada.
Benj serves as a member of the faculty of LCC, teaching mainly courses in Old Testament and biblical languages. He earned his seminary degree from Cairn University, and a PhD in Old Testament from Stellenbosch University. He uses his music and teaching gifts in campus ministry, local churches and regional seminaries. 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, mentors students through various extracurricular programs at LCC. She holds bachelor’s degrees in both biblical studies and music education. A choral director and music teacher, she also directs a choir comprised of students and staff, and teaches piano lessons.
We are members of Global Scholars, an organization whose aim is “to equip missional Christian academics to have a redemptive influence among their students, colleagues, universities, and academic disciplines.”
Benj is an ordained minister in ECO: A Covenant Order of Evangelical Presbyterians.
