Despite having a strong Christian heritage, a realization of his personal sin led him to accept Jesus Christ as his saviour at the age of 15 through the witness of his uncle. The uncle mentored and helped him grow spiritually and introduced him Nairobi Chapel’s youth ministry. It is at this youth group that he sensed God’s call to Christian ministry and also met and later married his wife Muthoni.
Their’s was the first wedding at Nairobi Chapel! The Lord has blessed them with one son, Nathaniel, now a student at Bethel Univeristy, USA. His ministry journey led him out of Kenya for the last 24 years both as a student and pastor. God opened a door for more ministry training, at another Bible College, in Canada. After college it was off to seminary in Dallas Texas, and then into ministry at a local church. He is currently pursuing a PhD in Family Studies. He joins us from Mizizi Church in Hopkins, Minnesota. Richard is also an avid soccer fan and enjoys Brazilian steak!
