Ted & Jennifer Bertleson


Ted and Jennifer serve with CMF’s urban poor team in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Their primary work includes child sponsorship with Strong Hearts Academy, church planting, and self-sustainability projects with Ellilta Women at Risk (EWAR).

Ted has been instrumental in the establishment of the Christian Church of Ethiopia, a church-planting movement overseen by nationals in the remote south. They focus on unreached people groups and have planted 45 churches with more than 4,300 people baptized since 2013.

Jennifer works alongside Ellilta Products, the self-sustainability division of EWAR, an organization that helps women and girls who are victims of sex trafficking in Addis Ababa. Jennifer assists with skills training and Bible studies, and Ted develops microenterprise projects that help the women support themselves.

Before their cross-cultural service began in 2012, Ted held various positions in the banking and mortgage industry and Jennifer worked in the medical and child-care fields. They have two daughters: Annelise (1988) and Karina (1991).
