Tim and Andrea Kay
US BASED, SERVING EAST AFRICA
After twenty years in pastoral ministry in the Presbyterian Church in America, Tim and Andrea Kay joined the African Bible Colleges (ABC) staff team in 2015 where they served until 2023. Now they are delighted to be serving the people of Africa through Edgewood Ministries and The 18.26 Network.
Tim grew up in a Christian home and came to faith in Christ as a young child. Andrea did not grow up in the church but became a Christian during her time as a student at Auburn University where she received her Bachelor’s Degree in Communication. Following her conversion, Andrea immediately had a sense of call to ministry. She has participated in mission projects in Eastern Europe (Hungary, Romania and Ukraine), South America (Peru), and in Africa (Uganda).
After graduating from Belhaven College in 1989, Tim spent two years on the staff of Reformed University Fellowship (RUF). He then attended Reformed Theological Seminary in Jackson, MS, where he and Andrea met and were married. After seminary Tim was Assistant Pastor at Trinity Presbyterian Church in Tuscaloosa, AL for 5 years, and then Associate Pastor at Westminster Presbyterian Church in Atlanta for 14 years. Tim and Andrea both always had a heart for global missions, but it was not until 2012 that they first visited Africa through a ministry to at-risk children in Uganda called Sixty Feet. They returned to Uganda in 2013 for Tim to teach at African Bible University in Kampala.
In his role as Executive Director of Edgewood Ministries, Tim is using his over 30 years of ministry experience in the US and in Africa to equip pastors and ministry leaders in Uganda and across East Africa. The four primary areas of focus for Edgewood’s work in Africa are: pastor training, church planting, university campus ministry, and economic development.
The Kays are also very excited to now be a part of the 18.26 Network serving as the regional leadership couple for Sub-Saharan Africa.
Tim and Andrea have three adult daughters: Hannah, Rachel, and Maggie and live in Athens, GA, but regularly make trips to East Africa.
