The academic administration of School of the Nations is structured in the following way:
Jong Pyo & Hwaock Im are career missionaries originally from South Korea, and have known Kenya as their home since 1981. During their 34 years here, they raised three daughters and founded both the International Christian Kindergarten and the School of the Nations. They are both part of the Evangelical Mission for Africa (EMA), and have a vision to serve Africa through education.
Dr. Jong Pyo Im is a missionary, pastor, and adjunct professor at the Handong Global University, and holds a PhD in Missiology from Fuller Theological Seminary. He often travels throughout East Africa to help train and equip other missionaries and pastors.
Mrs. Hwaock Im (known as Mrs. Im) is the head of the Educational Ministry of the EMA. She has recently acquired her PhD in Cross-Cultural Education from Biola University, having pioneered new ground in research on cross-cultural education in the growing urban centers of East Africa. She is the Director of the School of the Nations, and is often seen around campus enjoying the vibrant laughter and voices of the schoolchildren.
