Graham Aylett

Graham Aylett became General Secretary of the Increase Association in March 2021. He studied Natural Sciences at Cambridge University, specialising in Botany, and earned his PhD for research in high altitude rain forests in Jamaica. He then trained as an Anglican minister and met his wife, Nicola, at theological college in Durham. They served with churches in three very different parts of England, before doing further studies at All Nations Christian College. In 1998 they moved to Mongolia, with their two small children, as Mission Partners with Interserve. Graham served with the Mongolian national TEE programme for fourteen years. He joined the Increase Committee in 2010, and in 2014 he and Nicola moved to Malaysia to work alongside Tim and Rachel Green in setting up an Increase support base there. Since returning to England in 2016, Graham has continued to serve with Increase as an Increase Equipper and as part of the Executive Team, becoming General Secretary in 2021. He is Vice-Chair of the Trustees of SEAN International, and a member of the Asia Theological Association’s Commission on Accreditation and Educational Development. His publications include parts of TEE in Asia and other writings on TEE, specialising in interactive ways to equip leaders of local TEE groups. He continues to enjoy plants, especially growing cacti from seed!
