Tamme Dillion is the Education Director of Defenders Christian Academy in Liberia! In that role, her focus is equipping the school staff, preparing educational materials, fundraising for the education team, and serving in this ministry in whatever area she is able. After spending a year in Liberia with her children, God ignited a fire in her soul for providing a high-quality, Christ-centered education for the children in Liberia. Defenders Christian Academy officially opened in January 2022. Her prayer is that God would move mightily through this school and raise up this future generation to be Godly men and women who defend the weak and the fatherless of Liberia!
Tamme has three children; Landon, Carter, and Myah who keep her busy with an array of activities and animals. She enjoys music, art, sports, and spending time with her children. Tamme is grateful for the opportunity to serve with the youth at her home church and also with the students at the Christian school where she taught formerly.
