Kenya Ministry Training Institute: Training Pastors in East Africa

George Wafula, KMTI Director, shares the vision of KMTI

You Can Help Change a Nation

When a tribal warrior becomes a preacher of the Gospel, and a village tribe becomes a local church, then a whole nation can be changed! KMTI (Kenya Ministry Training Institute) has already trained thousands of indigenous pastors in Kenya and Uganda. But, there are more applicants than we can train at our main campus in Kitale, Kenya and in our Uganda school (UMTI). Additional funding is the only thing that keeps us from expanding further in Kenya—and surrounding nations. With your help, KMTI has the opportunity to change nations for the glory of Jesus Christ!

Kenya Ministry Training Institute at a Glance

Although Kenya is said to be 80% Christian, the reality is that most people’s faith is a mile wide but a foot deep. Sound biblical training along with intensive discipleship is needed to change the tribal culture of Kenya. When pastors are properly trained, their people will benefit.
Islam has made inroads into the heart of Kenya, drawing away weak and shallow believers. Voodoo is also practiced in Kenya and many tribal people are caught in its grip. Heresy is rampant in the Christian church because of the lack of trained pastoral leadership. Bits of Scripture are mixed with tribal culture and the result is disastrous.

The culture in Kenya is not “rated PG.” Practices such as female circumcision, polygamy, wife beating, sharing of wives, arranged marriages (aka selling brides), cross-tribal conflicts, and male tyranny result in disease and dysfunctional families. Marriage, family and interpersonal relationships desperately need redemption. The Gospel of Christ brings light to the darkness.

Kenya is a land of contrasts with the powers of darkness raised up against the kingdom of God. Poverty and AIDS are a daily reality for the majority of the population. Tribal customs and peer pressure keep many from finding the light. Women are treated as property and teenage boys and girls are circumcised in the streets and in homes in a horrific way.

You can begin to help make a difference in the life of a man or woman, a tribe, and a nation by donating today. You can sponsor a student (for as little as $50 a month for two years), a class, or even help start a new school. Your contributions help support the missionary teams and facilities development of KMTI & UMTI.

The Great Commission says to “go.” Your mission to East Africa awaits. Come for two weeks to teach or build, or come for a lifetime of service!

The challenges to reach the people of East Africa are great—but our God is greater than any roadblock of the enemy, greater than any schemes of selfish and politically motivated, corrupt leaders. We are believing that God will change nations!
