Mission Spotlight: Kenya

One of the main reasons The Crossing started partnerships in Kenya was a desire to train and equip indigenous church leaders to effectively take the gospel to their own people. We are motivated by love for the Kenyan people and a desire for them to know God more deeply. Since 2006, The Crossing has been growing our cooperative connection with New City Fellowship-Nairobi, our main partner church in Kenya, and with the AEPC (African Evangelical Presbyterian Church).

Most AEPC congregations in Kenya are very poor. Almost all are located in remote rural areas, though a few serve urban slum and ethnic minority populations. AEPC pastors are rarely able to complete bible courses at the 2-year diploma level, much less strive for bachelors or masters degrees in theology.

Our partnerships in Kenya now include:

  • pastoral education (including BATS and MATS)
  • Christlike leadership development
  • church planting
  • mentoring indigenous evangelists to reach their own ethnic groups
  • emergency relief
  • racial and tribal reconciliation
  • education and healthcare for marginalized populations including:
    • orphans and vulnerable children
    • refugees
