We’re the McAlhaneys and we serve in Kijabe, Kenya as missionaries with SIM.
Tim is the Spiritual Life Director and a lecturer at Moffat Bible College.
Maureen serves as the Program Officer for the Maternal and Newborn Community Health Project at Kijabe Hospital.
Join us as we seek to serve our Lord and Savior!
Tim is a Church Historian who has taught as an adjunct for The College at Southwestern, Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary, and Wayland Baptist University. He has been teaching since 2002 and enjoys connecting with students.
Maureen is a General Surgeon who completed her residency in 2010. She worked at Kindred Hospital prior to our move to Kenya.
Luke is a lively and loving little boy born March 24, 2009. He enjoys playing and listening to music. Kate is an amazing and beautiful little girl born February 24, 2012. She likes to chase her brother, giggle, and dance. They both love living here in Kijabe – we see sykes monkeys daily and often baboons and colobus monkeys.
Since our first date, we have had missions on our minds. In fact, one of the first things Maureen told Tim was that she wanted to be a physician so that she could serve Christ through missions. It has been over a decade since that first date, but God has been faithful and has guided us to this point in our lives.
Our Story . . .
God has been leading us toward serving Him in full-time ministry for most of our lives. He revealed His plan for medical missions to Maureen at the 1994 Urbana Conference. He instilled in Tim a love for teaching and led him to deepen his knowledge in Church History. Tim would later use this knowledge to impact students’ lives by showing them God’s hand in history.
In 2004, God allowed us to experience how our gifts could be used for His kingdom as we served in Jos, Nigeria for two months. We knew then that He would call us back to the mission field.
We heard God say “It’s time,” as Maureen was completing her medical training. Through prayer, a partnership with SIM began. The road to this point has not been easy or direct, but we are prayerfully anticipating serving in Kijabe, Kenya. Maureen will minister through medicine at Kijabe Hospital and Tim will teach at Moffat Bible College.
It would be our joy for you to Partner With Us through prayer and financial support, as we carry out this ministry and share God’s story with the world.
