I am Emily J Choge-Kerama (Ph.D) an Associate Professor at Moi University, Eldoret, Kenya. I teach these courses: Issues in social ethics, studies in the Old Testament, Studies in the New Testament, Christian Ethics, Systematic Theology, Bible and Moral Issues, Intercultural studies, Introduction to Theology and Introduction to the Scriptures. I started teaching at Moi University in 1990 and many students have passed through my hands. Many are successful in a variety of careers. I am a member of the Society of Christian Ethics, American Academy of Religions, the Society of Biblical Literature and the Christian Scientific Association of Kenya. I try at least to present a paper or to participate in the meetings of these associations once a year. I also do personal outreach to see that my expertise in applying theology to social issues is felt in the community. That is why I was a co-chair of the Uasin Gishu Children’s FORUM for many years since 2006. This is a gathering which brings together all the organizations that work with vulnerable children in Uasin Gishu County. They meet once a month on the last wednesday of every month. I am also founder member of African Christian Initiation Program (ACIP) a body that helps young people to transition from childhood to adulthood without falling into ravages of HIV/AIDS, drug abuse, and peer pressure. We try to organize activities for young people at least once in a year to help them to transition from childhood to adulthood. For boys we organize circumcision activities and for girls we organize life-skills training. I am also a member of the Uasin Gishu Education Board since 2013 representing the interests of vulnerable children in Uasin Gishu County. I also serve as a Board member of these schools, Testimony Faith Homes School, Race Course Secondary School and Terige High School. I am married to Isaya Kerama and a member of the Alasiri, SDA church, Eldoret. I also serve in the church in various capacities such as the secretary of development committee, and the Stewardship leader. I have a physical disability on her left leg, using prosthesis to move around fairly well. I also chair of the Bethany Kids Advisory board an organization that provides surgical procedures for children with physical disabilities. I am also a patron of Moi University Disability Club. This has opened opportunities for me to speak as a motivational speaker to various schools and colleges.
