About Michael Waddell

Michael has taken on a new role of Senior Associate, Faith+Work and Philippines, where he will provide leadership to the overall strategy and initiatives of CBM within the area of marketplace ministries. He will continue to liaise with CBM’s partners in the Philippines in order to implement, monitor and evaluate joint programming between CBM and local church partners who are working with the poor and marginalized in various facets of Integral Mission through capacity building that model humility, love, compassion and integrity.

Michael, along with his wife Melanie, was appointed as Global Field Staff serving in the Philippines in August 2015. They relocated to Canada in April 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Melanie has now concluded her service as Field Staff and has her own private practice offering counselling therapy for individuals and families.

Michael has a Master of Arts in Theology from Acadia Divinity College and is an ordained minister with Canadian Baptist of Atlantic Canada (CBAC).

The Waddells spent 14 years in the business world, as well as 5 years serving as Directors of a Baptist owned Christian camp in New Brunswick, before sensing that God was leading them to something new.

Michael and Melanie have four growing children: Kyla, Sean, Carter and Allie.

A new year has brought about many new opportunities for CBM to engage with our partners around the world in embracing a broken world through word and deed. In the Philippines, CBM partners with Kabuganaan Philippines Ministries (KPM) in a wide range of Integral Mission programs.
