Alison Millikan

Alison grew up primarily in Seattle, Scotland and France as the eldest daughter of Tim and Kerry Dearborn, Presbyterian mission pastors and academics.  Relationship with God has always been a key part of her life and over time awareness of God’s voice and presence intensified. It was as a 6 year old when Alison first heard that there were children in parts of the world who didn’t have parents.  Her immediate desire was to help them have a home and access to love, care and support.  This desire to serve women and children has taken many forms throughout her life from global mission engagement to serving on a mission’s staff of a church to attending law school and working in child advocacy.  Alison has put significant focus on what it means for kids to experience intimacy with God and have a place of value and significance in the church and what God is doing in the world.
