About Jayson Georges

Jayson Georges (M. Div., Talbot) is the founding editor and primary blogger of HonorShame.com. 
headshot1(small) copyOur family served in Central Asia for nine years doing disciple-making, church-planting, and microenterprise-development. Understanding honor-shame dynamics helped me to navigate relationships, share the gospel, seize Kingdom opportunities, and more deeply experience God’s grace. My current role is Missiologist-in-Residence at an evangelical mission organization, focusing on developing resources and leading practical training workshops.

And in my real life, I enjoy playing any sport with a ball, mountain biking, reading international news, and talking about honor and shame from any possible angle. Our family lives among a diverse refugee community in Atlanta. Feel free to contact me at info@honorshame.com
