Jonny and Beth Burgess

Jonny moved to The Gambia to teach at Servants of the Word (SOW) bible school in 2015. In 2017 Jonny married Beth and she joined him in serving there until their return to the UK in July 2019. 

Beth worked with youth and children's workers, resourcing and training them to teach young people God's word faithfully and engagingly. Jonny taught courses on preaching and discipleship at SOW. They both taught God's word lots at their church too (Beth with the children, Jonny in preaching).

There is often much admirable zeal and enthusiasm among Christians in The Gambia, but a serious lack of careful and faithful bible teaching. Jonny and Beth worked alongside local Christian leaders - learning from them and assisting them in the task of training servant-hearted gospel workers for the small but growing Church.
