Area Team Leaders

Cris and Marlyn Uy

Area Team Leader, Southeast Asia

Christopher (Cris) Uy became a staff member of Campus Crusade for Christ in the Philippines in 1989 after his graduation from college. He held several positions: first in the campus ministry and then in the church ministry.

In 1993, Cris took over the leadership of the Jesus Film Project in the Philippines and had the joy of seeing the film translated in 33 Filipino languages and dialects. The film aired several times on national television and assisted the Body of Christ in planting more than 51,000 local churches all over the country.

Cris, with his wife Marlyn, also served as team leader of LeaderImpact which was instrumental in gathering all ten presidential candidates of the country during the 2010 national election, and gave the candidates opportunity to be known for who they are as a person and not just as a politician.

Since January 2013, after serving as the National Team Leader for the Philippine Campus Crusade for Christ, Cris now serves as the Area Team Leader for Southeast Asia. The area serves ten countries.

Cris holds an Executive Doctorate in Leadership from the University of Makati, a Master of Arts in Development Studies (Cum Laude) from the University of Santo Tomas in Manila as well as a Bachelor of Fine Arts, also from the University of Santo Tomas.

Dr. Cris Uy and his wife, Marlyn, are blessed with a sweet, but independent-minded daughter, Danielle, and a jolly explorer son, Sam. As a family they enjoy eating out, travelling and sightseeing. The family's favorite Bible verse is Philippians 4:6, “Do not be anxious about anything. Instead, in every situation, through prayer and petition with thanksgiving, tell your requests to God.”
