Board of Directors
The U.S. board of Gethsemane International serves without compensation, and is composed of the following members:
Chip & Kim Maye
Founders, President and Board Member
Chip resigned as a Managing Director with Wycliffe Bible Translators, Inc. in eastern Africa after starting what has now become Gethsemane International, Inc. While serving as missionaries in Kenya, Africa, Chip and his wife, Kim, saw desperate children living in the streets, eating the trash in garbage piles, abandoned with no hope. God placed a burden on their hearts to invest completely in the lives of these children, meeting their spiritual, physical, educational and emotional needs in a holistic manner. Kim and Chip started a school for these needy children in 2002 while they were still serving in Kenya. They are the proud parents of six children.
