George and Martha Mixon have served in Kenya since 1994, where George has worked for many years training Kenya pastors and leaders in Bible storying. They first worked with the Maasai people on a church planting team where George served as a veterinarian. After George completed 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.

George and Martha recently 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 will be serving on Serge’s Member Care team.

Four of the Mixons' children currently live in the U.S. and one in Kenya. Beth lives in Washington D.C. with husband, Chris, and daughter, Polly. Carrie lives in Trenton, Georgia, and, like Beth, works with Blue Sky Ministries, a Kenya-based adventure ministry. James works on a wildlife conservancy in Kenya. Nathan works in Washington D.C., and Laura recently graduated from Rosslyn Academy in Nairobi and is enjoying a gap year before going to college.
