Abraham (Abey) George serves as the Director of International Church Mobilization with the International Justice Mission. IJM is a human rights agency that secures justice for victims of slavery, sexual exploitation and other forms of violent oppression. IJM lawyers, investigators and aftercare professionals work with local governments to ensure victim rescue, to prosecute perpetrators and to strengthen the community and civic factors that promote functioning public justice systems.
Mr. George is responsible for overseeing IJM's church mobilization efforts in each of the countries where IJM has field offices conducting casework. Mr. George travels internationally preaching at churches, leading conferences, facilitating pastoral trainings and connecting Church leaders around the world to engage in the biblical work of justice.
IJM works with local government partners to bring rescue and restoration to individual victims of violent abuse as well as to transform the broken public justice system – police, courts and laws – so that the poor are protected. Likewise, IJM works with local churches around the world, to educate and engage them in the biblical work of justice in their communities.
Mr. George received a Master of Divinity from Southern Asia Bible College in Bangalore, India, and a Master of Theology in Historical Theology, with distinction, from Trinity Theological College in Singapore. Ordained in 1999 by the Assemblies of God, Mr. George was a pastor and a theology lecturer in India. After immigrating to the U.S. in 2002, he conducted policy research for a think-tank in Washington, D.C., and managed the U.S. office of the International Fellowship of Evangelical Mission Theologians, an Oxford-based organization. Mr. George joined IJM in May 2010.
He and his wife, Florence, have two children, and they make their home near Annapolis, Maryland.
