Renewal Team, United States
George and Martha Mixon served in Kenya from 1994 until 2021. George’s main ministry for many years has been in training Kenya pastors and leaders in Bible storying. However, the Mixons first lived among and worked with the Maasai people on a church planting team where George served as a veterinarian. After taking time out for George to complete seminary, the Mixons returned to Kenya in 2004 to join Serge’s church planter training team.
After a couple of years George narrowed his focus to training Kenyan leaders in Chronological Bible Storying (CBS). He has led a team of trainers, both Kenyan and expatriate, who lead groups of national pastors and church leaders through a year-long program, learning and teaching through over thirty key chronologically-arranged Bible stories. This lays a foundation for understanding the Gospel that is much needed in the African church and is a great tool for evangelism and discipleship. George and his team have recently developed a version of Serge’s Sonship curriculum designed in Bible storying form for primary oral learners. They use this as follow up for graduates of CBS training.
In June 2021 George and Martha moved their home base to Milledgeville, Georgia, from which George serves on the Serge Renewal team, continuing to work mostly in Bible storying. He makes several long trips per year to Kenya to help the CBS team there and to other countries to help other Serge teams incorporate Bible storying into their Gospel-centered ministries. Martha is now serving on Serge’s Member Care team, seeking to help missionaries and their families in various parts of the world thrive in their lives and ministries.
Three of the Mixons’ children live in the U.S. and two in Kenya. Beth lives in Atlanta. with husband, Chris, and daughter, Polly. Carrie lives and teaches near Chattanooga. James works on a wildlife conservancy in northern Kenya. Nathan too lives and works in Kenya in the conservation world. Laura attends Covenant College.
