Kenya remains a regional and continental hub for Christian mission, theological education and church ministry. The troubles in the region make this reality all the more strategic.

Kenya’s long-term stability cannot be taken for granted. Droughts in the north caused the deaths of 80% of the livestock, and the decrease of pasturelands causes violent clashes among various ethnic groups claiming the resources. Fragile ecosystems, overdue land reform, widening gaps between rich and poor, increasingly scarce water, rapidly expanding urban slums and burgeoning populations of street children/AIDS orphans all point to future tensions. Many of these issues were components of the ethnic violence and political crisis of 2007-08. Pray for peace, for wise governance and for practical solutions that can be implemented effectively.

There is full freedom of religion and much of the population professes to be Christian- including many in leadership. Kenya has 36%, or 13 million, Evangelicals – Africa’s highest percentage and nearly equal to all Evangelicals in Europe.

Almost all national ministries are now operating under Kenyan leadership, whether in pioneer outreach, Bible teaching or in service ministries. Nairobi is a key hub for ministry in Africa and beyond. Many international Christian organizations have their continental offices based there.
