Glory to God. I am so glad to hear that you are joining us in looking for ways to make the need known. The land will be 100 feet by 200 feet in total in Narok town at a cost of US$11000 (£10000). We will build a 1000 members sanctuary and prayer centre, have packing lot, build a guest house and conference facility so that when short term and long term missionaries come to Kenya, they will stay here and conduct conferences and training meetings at the Church without struggle.
God bless you.
Joshua Generation Ministries
“Joshua Generation Ministries (JGM) is a Christian missionary organization working in Turkana and West Pokot Counties in North Western Kenya. Our vision is to reach the unreached in remote villages and to promote peace and reconciliation between Turkana and Pokot communities. We use Jesus film to reach thousands of people with the gospel every year, we help establish and/or strengthen churches in remote villages both in Turkana and Pokot. We also reach out to children and youths in schools with the gospel”.
“On the other hand we promote peace and reconciliation between Turkana and Pokot communities through a spiritual and nonviolent approach of prayer. We seek to end decades of fighting, bloodshed and misery that have brought insecurity, poverty and lack of economic development to this region”.
“According to 2 Corinthians 5:18-20 and 2 Chronicles 7:14, we believe the work of reconciliation and healing of the land was committed to the church. Therefore JGM facilitates peace meetings that bring together Turkana and Pokot pastors to pray for peace and the healing of the land. Such meetings have bolstered cooperation and unity among these pastors and eagerness to see peace and healing restored to their land”.

Kenya Center for House Church Network, Inc.
Kenya Center for House Church Network is focused for the cause of world evangelism; seeking to plant bible believing home churches (NOT cell churches) in neighborhoods where none exist, especially in the remote parts of East Africa. The objective is to make sure that the home churches are culturally relevant and have a vision to reach their own communities and beyond, i.e. self supporting and self propagating home churches. The house churches are not necessarily affiliated with Kenya Center for House Church Network.
“For close to 13 years Jane and I and a handful of members of Kenya Center Apostolic Team have been engaged in home churches and helping them grow.
We also have a program that provides training and coaching for individual believers and churches and have a particular focus in East Africa and have had the privilege of visiting and establishing relationships with many house churches in different parts of East Africa with many different cultures, languages and ethnic backgrounds. We have seen that all these house churches have the same basic needs
(a) The need for discipleship and church planting training
(b) The need to have an experienced, trained coach or mentor to assist these home churches and believers in their ministries
(c) The need to be able to develop specific visions and strategies to fulfill the Great Commission
(d) The need for unity and affiliation with likeminded believers….the result of this assessment was the reorganization of our ministry into…. Kenya Center for House Church Network
Kenya Center for House Church Network mission and goals are therefore twofold namely:
- Developing and planting house churches: in order to introduce the lost to Christ and nurture new believers, Kenya Center for House Church Network remains focused for the cause of world evangelism. We seek to plant bible believing home churches in neighborhoods where none exist especially in the remote parts of East Africa. The objective is to make sure that they are culturally relevant and have a vision to reach their own communities and beyond .i.e self supporting and self propagating home churches. The house churches DO NOT have to be affiliated with Kenya Center for House Church Network – they can be independent or be even affiliated with another bible believing church of their choice. The only relationship we cultivate is that of coaching and training only. Our main motivation is to win souls to Christ and NOT to build a denomination or an organization.
- Training leaders and equipping the saints: Kenya Center for House Church Network is fully convinced that the need to train and bring up church leaders is primarily the responsibility of the church and should be done in the local home church context without the believer or the pastor leaving his/ her flock to go to some seminary.
“As in the past, the success of our training and church planting events has largely been due to the contributions of some brethren in our mailing list who have gone out of their way to lend support to our church planting and evangelistic ventures and at times our Apostolic team to most of the training events…… It is only through these thoughtful gifts that we have been able to plant over 17 house churches and to offer a crucial helping hand to the needy pastors on the trenches in rural Kenya and beyond. For the years 2013-2015 we have close to 416 souls who have been led to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ and Baptized in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ! Thank you Jesus!
Every year the funds we raise by way of our “tent making” involvements such as rabbit sales, chicken rearing, window washing and plate offerings from our home church and love offering from some of the brethren in the mailing list has been led to the cause of winning souls for Christ and to establish home churches among the unchurched people groups, to equip the saints for the work of the ministry, to fund our ministry trips and to put bibles in the hands of needy brethren.
As a ministry, we always keep seeking the mind of God NOT to deviate from the mission He has called us to. We continue to be totally committed to prayer, God centered worship, Bible-based teaching, and introducing people to Jesus and helping them become fully devoted followers (disciples) of Jesus–who passionately pursue God and authentic relationships and together are committed to accomplishing God’s redemptive purposes in the world through House Churches”.

Today Jane and I had an opportunity to go to Wagon Wheel Restaurant in Eldoret.
l saw there was a free WiFi service for customers, so l asked for the password. The waitress told me “EAT FIRST”, so l placed my order. After eating l asked again for the password, and again, she told me eat first. Feeling frustrated, l ordered black coffee. After coffee, again l asked for the password. They told me “eat first”. Then angrily, l walked to the restaurant manager and asked for the password. He replied “EAT FIRST”!!!
l was about to explode, when I finally saw a sign on the wall indicating “WiFi password…”EAT FIRST”.
This shows that most of us are waiting for an answer from God after we have prayed, but we don’t listen to what He is saying to us. Sometimes, the Lord is showing us an open door, but we keep asking for direction, instead of looking at the door He has opened.
May the Holy Spirit guide us and open our spiritual eyes to see the answers to our prayers.
Have a blessed day, and may we learn to listen to Him.

Fundamental Baptist Church in Nyamarambe Kisi County
“We invite you to participate with us at Fundamental Baptist! With many people just like you all doing a small part, we are taking the Good News of the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ to the uttermost parts of Kenya- East Africa and the world. Anyone can help! So, come see what God is doing today, join with us, and keep fulfilling the plan He has for you in Kingdom Ministry!
As we see it, The Fundamental Baptist Church really only has one purpose. That is the same purpose that Jesus had, as is described in 1 John 3:8, “For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.” We believe that we can best accomplish that by helping to fulfill The Great Commission, so we try to show and teach the Love and Hope of Jesus to everyone we encounter. Our desire is to help share the Gospel with the whole world, but we are primarily focused on work in East Africa. We believe we have been specifically prepared and called to Minister God’s Grace to the people here in Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Rwanda and Burundi. We will be faithful and true to God’s charge.
We hope that you will partner with us in this great work. God is always pleased when His Children are bound in Love and united in purpose. Working together, we can all help make a very large difference”!
