Marsabit Diocese is in northern Kenya and is the size of the whole of England. 60% of the population are Muslim and 35% follow traditional African religions - just 5% are Christian. Gospel workers are few, with only 18 trained clergy.
The diocese's youth and children’s worker is responsible for 53 churches spread across a huge region. It is an important role as radicalisation of young people is increasingly becoming an issue. Christian teenagers suffer much persecution and pressure to conform.
Jomo Nderitu has been the youth and children’s worker since January 2019. He previously worked in Marsabit as a ministry apprentice from 2014-2015. This apprenticeship year helped sharpen Jomo's desire to live for Christ and proclaim him to the unchurched. Jomo then studied for a Bachelor of Theology at George Whitefield College in South Africa from 2016-2018.
Jomo’s ministry includes:
The aim of my role is to make disciple-makers and so I am keen to equip more passionate, available and teachable people. It is a deep and quality work in a few for the sake of the many.
In July, we had two training workshops: one for evangelists and the other for volunteer ministry workers. At both, we trained people how to prepare Christ-centred sermons, plan a service and lead cell groups, as well as taught some sessions on biblical theology. In total, 60 people came to the two trainings. Pray that those who came will be faithful workers and that they will keep growing in the Lord even as they serve.
