Sheona Chisholm

Sheona is currently raising support so that she can begin working as AIM Europe’s Mission Advisor for Scotland.

Before joining Africa Inland Mission as a long term missionary in 2015, Sheona worked in nursing and midwifery for over 30 years. In 2016 she returned to the UK from serving on an AIM team in the Indian Ocean Islands, and studied at All Nations Christian College for two years. In that time, she was challenged to lay down her passion for maternal morbidity and mortality and instead be passionate about the gospel.

Sheona began serving with Africa Based Support (ABS) in Nairobi, Kenya in 2018. She started serving at ABS as Assistant Personnel Coordinator, and then as Personnel Coordinator.

Located in Nairobi, Kenya, ABS is a ministry of AIM. It exists to coordinate and provide essential support services to enhance the ministries of missionaries from AIM and several other like-minded organisations.

AIM and ABS place high value on caring for missionaries to ensure they are thriving in their cross-cultural life and ministry. Having people specifically working to provide this care is vital.

Sheona’s work with ABS was very varied, and she provided support for missionaries in a number of different areas. She provided administrative support and ensuring that systems and processes were followed.

Sheona returned to the UK in July 2020, and has now been appointed as AIM’s Mission Advisor for Scotland. As a member of the Mobilisation team, her principal responsibilities will be to promote the work of world mission, especially in raising the profile of AIM’s ministry. She will also encourage and advise those exploring getting involved in cross-cultural mission, as well as encourage others to support missionaries through praying and financial giving.

A lot of her role will involve building relationships with church leaders and potential AIM missionaries, wherever they are in their journey. Scotland has a long history of sending missionaries overseas, so Sheona hopes to be able to encourage churches and individuals to have a vision for reaching Africa’s unreached peoples, in Africa and beyond.

Could you partner with Sheona in this work?
