At Mamlaka Hill Chapel we believe that every believer has been called to be a disciple of Christ and to in turn make disciples for Christ. For this reason, we believe that every believer is a missionary; some know it, acknowledge it and live as missionaries while many others don’t. We believe that God is on a mission to reconcile humanity to himself. The church is a major vehicle through which God is working to accomplish his mission. Mamlaka Hill Chapel is privileged and obligated to be available servants to be used by God.
In keeping with the church’s mission statement; “To promote personal intimacy with God in order to build godly communities that will impact the nations for Christ”, we have adopted several mission fields both locally and globally where we desire to make authentic disciples of Christ.
The following are our local mission initiatives:
Kamurio, East Pokot
In 2006, we came to learn about a little, unknown community in a village called Kamurio in East Pokot. Rev David Kiturwas serving there as a missionary sent by his local church. Pastor Kitur and his wife Martha became the entry point for us into Kamurio. After a few visits, a beautiful relationship was formed between Mamlaka Hill Chapel and the people in Kamurio. We have continued to enjoy this friendship to this day.
Over the years Mamlaka Hill Chapel has partnered with the community to achieve a holistic development. As often as possible, Mamlaka Hill Chapel mobilizes members of her congregation to visit Kamurio, conducting veterinary camps, medical camps as well as community education for the development of the community. Similarly, Mamlaka Hill chapel through the Kalya initiative helped sink a borehole to provide water for the community and through the Kamurio Education Fund educated many Children through secondary school.
In 2013, Njeri Gichuru was commissioned by Mamlaka and deployed as a resident missionary to Kamurio. Not only did she teach at the local primary school, she also pastored the community and particularly the women. She planted a church in a village called Chepkererat, about 6km from Kamurio. This church is a great encouragement because it has recorded an attendance of around 50 men which is considerably high and has been a prayer item. After our annual veterinary camp last year, 15 men gave their lives to Christ. We continue to celebrate what the Lord is doing in Kamurio. Njeri transitioned from the mission field in February 2017. We trust the Lord to send more laborers into the harvest field.
This is Kenya’s largest correctional center for first-time offenders under the age of eighteen. It seeks to rehabilitate and empower offenders with life skills with the aim of being re-integrated back into the community to keep them from becoming repeat offenders.
We have an opportunity to minister hope as we share the Gospel and our lives with these young ones. On every second Sunday of the month, congregants from Mamlaka Hill Chapel ‘take church’ to them, where we join in their church service and participate through preaching and leading small groups for Bible Study. We also take advantage of these opportunities to teach them some life-skills and support their training in technical skills.
Milimani Secondary School
High school is ideally a time to prepare children to become responsible adults. Milimani Secondary School is a boys’ day school located within Nairobi Primary’s grounds, a few meters from Mamlaka Hill Chapel. Here’s an open door for the men at Mamlaka Hill Chapel to train these young men in the ways of the Lord through discipleship. We have opportunities to preach to them every Sunday during their service and every Wednesday morning. The youth ministry is running the ministry faithfully under Pst. John Musyimi.
Many Christians do not know how to share the gospel with the brothers and sisters in the Muslim faith. This is an open opportunity to learn about Islam and form a heart of compassion for Muslims by joining a team which constantly prays for them. This ministry is ideally for those who have consistent interactions with Muslims either at work, school, or in the neighborhood.
We endeavor to provide knowledge and skill to the congregation on how to reach those in the Muslim faith, while taking time to rejoice and give thanks for those who have come to the faith. Our faithful partners from Life Challenge Africa, Christel and Walter Eric, have constantly provided training and helped equip us for the task.
Asumbi treatment center
Asumbi Treatment Center is a rehabilitation center for men in Karen. Mamlaka Hill Chapel has found a great opportunity to minister to these men by presenting the Gospel to these men as the only sure way of being set completely free. Once every month a team of Mamlakites led by Liz Makena go to visit the men and engage them in a beautiful time of fun, food and fellowship. Karibu.
