We are living and serving in Nairobi, Kenya, working with New City Fellowship, Nairobi, working with the Internship and Apprenticeship program with Serge, and getting to know and love the people we are partnering with. Visit our blog to keep up with our adventures!

Thank you for visiting our site. We are serving in Nairobi, Kenya training pastors and doing evangelism.Wallace Family Shawn and Heather met at Nyack College in 1992. After graduation they were married and quickly started in ministry. They worked in youth ministry for 5 years in the Christian and Missionary Alliance before taking a church as the Senior Pastor in a CMA church. This church was a redevelopment church and showed Shawn’s gifting for training and developing leaders. During their time at the church they felt the desire to pursue overseas missions, and decided to figure out what this meant by leading two different trips short term to Ecuador and El Salvador. They fell in love with this life, and started seeking ways to serve overseas. Through a series of events they ended up in Malawi, Africa for 8 months training pastors, doing marriage counseling, and working to develop leaders as an orphanage was being built. Upon coming back to the States, they came in contact with Serge and visited Sudan. After meeting the team, going to the country, and much time in prayer and counseling, God made it clear they should join the Serge team there to help this new country rebuild. Unfortunately the country fell back into civil war, and the whole team was forced to evacuate and relocate. The Wallaces have now been in Nairobi, Kenya for 3 years serving in New City Fellowship Nairobi as well as working with Serge’s internship and apprenticeship programs. They have 4 children: John, at Nyack College in Nyack, NY, and Anna, Andrew, and RJ at Rosslyn Academy in Nairobi.

Grace at the Fray

We are going to serve the Lord in Nairobi, Kenya with Serge. We love Serge because they believe we have to be deeply committed to preaching the gospel to ourselves, even as we share it with others. Serge is an incarnational ministry, and as such they value life‐on‐life discipleship; personal, loving, relationships; they cultivate new leadership through personal mentoring; and they work toward a humble and transparent life—both personally and as an organization.
