Caine grew up in the Greek Orthodox Church in Australia. She first volunteered as a youth worker, when she helped establish Hills District Youth Service. She went on to become the director of a nationwide youth ministry, Youth Alive. In 2008 Christine founded the A21 Campaign with her husband Nick, who now serves as the CEO of A21 and Pastor of Zoe Churches. A21 is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, non-governmental organization which fights to "abolish slavery everywhere, forever". With 12 offices in 11 countries, their aim is to prevent human trafficking through awareness, to protect trafficked victims in their shelters and transition homes, to prosecute traffickers and strengthen the legal response to human trafficking, and to partner with law enforcement, individuals, corporations, official bodies, and other non-governmental organizations to end human trafficking in the 21st century.
In January 2015, Caine founded Propel Women, an organization that believes in the passion, purpose, and potential of every woman everywhere. Propel Women exists to honor the calling of every woman, empower her to lead, equip her for success, and develop a sense of God-given purpose.
