Georgette Short

Sent from Viewfield Baptist Church, Dunfermline

Having left Kenya in 2016, Georgette is serving at Tilsley College in Motherwell. 

Kenya gained independence from Britain in 1963. Since then British tourism has been a key element of Kenya’s economy, however, unemployment, poverty and crime remain high. Whilst the majority religion is Christianity, Kenya’s ethnic diversity and vast countryside means there are still many unreached with the gospel.

Georgette has been serving with AIM in Kenya since 2005, first at Eldama Ravine, and then at Scott Theological College since 2007. Scott trains pastors, teachers and missionaries from all over Africa. Georgette has mainly been involved in teaching Biblical and missions subjects as well as academic writing. She enjoyed interacting with the students both inside and outside class, learning as much from them as they did from her. One of the parts of her job that she most enjoyed was mentoring students in their leadership and character development. Through this Georgette had the opportunity to see them grow and develop in their Christian walk and abilities to minister effectively. She often accompanied students on ministry trips and visited them during their internships, which helped her to understand what God is doing through the church in Kenya and gave her an opportunity to minister in the churches herself.

Using the skills and experience that Georgette gained at Scott University, she is now ministering at Tilsley College in Motherwell. Tilsley aims to equip people to be involved in mission. Georgette will standing in for the Academic Dean who will be on sabbatical as well as teaching some courses.
