Millie Castillo

Millie grew up as a CCK (Cross-Culture Kid), has been a missionary for 18 years, and has lived in seven different countries, much of that time working for ADRA. Having raised two TCKs (Third Culture Kids), Millie is familiar with the joys and challenges of today’s global citizens.

Her passion for helping young people navigate through their formative years has manifested in a variety of ways: as a trained music teacher utilizing music to reach out to young ones and involve them in ministry and as a missionary organizing youth groups for outreach and summer camps. Prior to accepting the position of education and communication coordinator for the Institute of World Mission, she worked for the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists in the Secretarial Department and as Deferred Mission Appointee Coordinator.

Millie and her husband, Edgar, now reside in Maryland, along with one of their two young adult daughters. Her hobbies include taking care of her pets, traveling, reading, music and spending time with friends.
