Jon and Jessie Ritchey

Ritchey Update


Jon and Jessie have been International Workers with The Alliance since 1989 and are currently in their sixth term of service. They first served in Guinea, West Africa where they spent 15 years among an Islamic tribal group. During that season, they worked on an international team and saw the strength of diverse cultures working together for common goals. This planted the seed for their pivot in 2004 to move into training candidates and supporting The Alliance’s sister/fraternal organizations around the world in their sending and supporting process of their own international workers.

Their work involves extensive traveling throughout the Latin American region as well as countries where Latino international workers are serving. The Atlanta airport provides a central location for traveling in all directions. Their varied work includes teaching in numerous schools and training programs, conducting workshops, and speaking in conferences and camps. They also serve as consultants for leaders of the sending structures, helping them contextualize and formulate their selecting, sending and supporting structures. They also collaborate with numerous sister agencies and programs from other organizations in the Latin American region. Jessie is also involved in researching and developing Member Care materials and services within our region.

Their daughter, Caitlin, is married and teaches AP World History and serves on the History Curriculum committee in Atlanta, GA. Her husband, James, works in the office of the Secretary of the Senate for Georgia. Their son, Justin, is in this third year at the University of Georgia, majoring in cinematography.
