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, Joy Mindo the then Missions Pastor at Mamlaka Hill Chapel learnt about a little, unknown community in a town called Kamurio, East Pokot from Pastor David Kitur who was 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 by Pastor Joy, a beautiful relationship was formed between Mamlaka Hill Chapel and the people in Kamurio. We have continued to enjoy this friendship to this day.
At first glance, Kamurio could have been dismissed as a distant, dry and remote little village without a local church and with only one struggling local primary school. However, it is near impossible to go to Kamurio and not fall in love with its people. The community is welcoming and open. They received us well and accepted us as family in the Lord Jesus Christ. The community has grown in leaps and bounds since that initial contact. Today the local church is vibrant with professing Christians eager to walk and grow in the Lord and to make him known.
Over the years Mamlaka Hill Chapel has partnered with the Kamurio community to achieve a wholistic development of the community.
This is Kenya’s largest correctional centre 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 and to keep them from becoming repeat offenders. We have an opportunity to minister hope as we share the Gospel and our lives with these children for whom God died.
We “take church” to them once a month where we take part in their church services by preaching and leading small groups for Bible Studies. We also take advantage of these opportunities to teach them some life-skills.
Our next visit will be on Sunday, 10th July.
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 metres 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 Wednesday morning and to disciple them.
This is an open opportunity to learn about the muslims and form a heart of compassion for them by joining a team which constantly prays for them. This ministry is ideal for those who have consistent interactions with them e.g, at work, school, neighbourhood.
We are currently praying for them as a team through this season of Ramadhan. Our next meeting will be on 9th July at the Life Challenge Africa offices near Yaya Centre.
