A SoCal native, Chris attended CSUF where he studied as a student researcher in CIRM’s Bridges to Stem Cell Research and Therapy Program and graduated with his B.S. in cellular and developmental biology. As he grew more passionate about the intersection of higher education and the dynamics of Christian formation, Chris transitioned to seminary and received his M.Div at Azusa Pacific Seminary. For the last 9 years, he has served as a teaching pastor at a Vineyard church in Orange County and is now on staff with InterVarsity as a minister to graduate students and faculty here at USC. Chris enjoys being a husband (and dog dad), reading, good coffee, theological conversations, and getting outdoors on his mountain bike.
Kylie Liu graduated with a BA in Human Development in 2013 from UCSD where she was blessed to serve and be a part of the AACF community. She continued there as an AACF resource the following year while studying to gain credentials in Multiple Subject teaching and Special Education. After moving back to the LA area in 2015, where she grew up, Kylie began teaching elementary students full time. In 2016, she married Jon Liu and supported his AACF ministry at USC. She is excited to return to USC as a volunteer campus minister and to work a group of exceptionally driven individuals. When not in the classroom or on the college campus, Kylie enjoys going for walks, spending time with family, and indulging in any dessert.
