The Anderson’s have three sons, Benjamin 36, Jonathan 33, and Michael 24.  They presently live in Omaha, Nebraska. They also have two granddaughters, Ansley and Cara Lynn.

Chip and Mary Anderson are originally from Ames, Iowa and both are graduates of Iowa State University (Chip in Industrial Education, Mary in Elementary Education).  Through the ministry of the Navigators at Iowa State University, Chip became a Christian and both Chip and Mary ministered with the Navigators during their college years.

In 1982 the Anderson’s were invited by Latin American Mission to work with the Association of Christian Ministries (AMCA), in San Jose, Costa Rica, Central America. There, Chip and Mary pastored the Youth Group of 50-60 young people.

In addition to his pastoring duties, Chip also worked with the churches of Costa Rica in evangelism campaigns, church growth seminars, leadership development classes. Over the years he also lead many short term mission church teams to bless the churches in building pastor’s homes, Sunday school buildings, and evangelism outreaches.

Chip is also one of the founders of the Tico Electronics assembly factory in Costa Rica. This factory was started to help single mothers break the cycle of poverty, come to Christ, and learn a skill. Today the factory employs more than 300 people.

Since 2000, Dr. Anderson serves as President of CFCI and oversees its work in 16 countries.  CFCI has over 460 workers, more than half of whom are non-North Americans. As President Chip provides spiritual oversight, vision, and administration for the growth of CFCI. He also enjoys helping to develop leadership skills in his staff and directors.
