Michelle and David Graves

In 2019, the Graves served as Short-Term Missionaries with the Rafiki Foundation for a month at the Kenya Village. After returning to the US, they realized that God was calling them to continue helping Rafiki with its work in Africa.

David grew up going to a classical Christian school, and he returned to that school as an adult to work in communications. He built a journalism program at the school and also taught classes. Michelle has a degree in classical studies and has been a teacher in classical Christian education for over 25 years. She has seen how classical learning has benefited her own personal walk with the Lord, and she appreciates the biblical worldview integration in Rafiki’s classical curriculum.

Michelle first heard about Rafiki a long time ago through Bible Study Fellowship but only recently found out about Rafiki’s classical schools through a “job” posting on the internet. When Michelle inquired about working for Rafiki at one of their schools, she came to understand that what she believed to be a job was actually missions work and that Rafiki wanted David’s help as well! They are humbled but excited by God’s call for them to use their decades of experience in classical education to serve as Long-Term Missionaries with Rafiki.

The Graves are currently going through training and raising support, and they hope to move to the Rafiki Village Uganda in the summer of 2021. Michelle will serve as the Dean of the Rafiki Institute of Classical Education (RICE) teachers college and work on completing the accreditation process for the college. David will serve as the Village Administrator.
