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:
‘Watch over your life and doctrine closely. Persevere in them, because if you do, you will save both yourself and your hearers.’ (1 Timothy 4:16). This remains to be our sole endeavour at the ACK Diocese of Marsabit youth department. We not only seek to model the Christian faith in our context but also to equip the Church (the young Church, so to speak) to do the very same thing. The aim is to rally every single member to play their distinctive role in building and edifying the body of Christ.
