Our Team

Christine Boyle, Director

Christine Boyle is a community organizer and storyteller, raised on Coast Salish territory in Vancouver, BC. She grew up in the United Church of Canada, and has an BSc in Urban Agriculture and First Nations Studies from UBC, and an MA in ‘Religious Leadership for Social Change’ from the Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley, California.

Four years ago Christine launched Spirited Social Change, an initiative aimed at engaging people across generations to explore the intersections between faith, spirituality, and our work for a better world. Through that work she initiated and coordinates The Self Care Project, and co-created Fossil Free Faith: Canada’s Interfaith Divestment Network. She also works as the Minister of Community Life at Canadian Memorial United Church and Centre for Peace.

Chris regularly talks about feelings, practices yoga, worships food, contemplates purpose, nurtures plants, and preaches about the need to create social, political and economic systems that reflect our desire to care for one another. She has an 11-year-old step-daughter and a new baby son. She actively believes that people are good.
