Kenya’s Hunger

Desiring a New Kind of Leadership

By Bruce Witt

preview 

Kenya is a country of some 40 million people and has enjoyed relative peace and a strong Christian heritage for a number of years. Still they face many problems and challenges such as deep poverty in many of the cities and rural towns, the lack an effective education system that equips the young for good jobs, increasing corruption in both the business and government sectors which point a to need for effectual leadership. It was from these needs that 3 Strands and Onemus Weru sought to partner with Leadership Revolution to bring a fresh approach to leadership.

Here in Eldoret we introduced the One Leader training to over 150 pastors and business leaders. In the words on Onesmus, “This training is a shocker! It was completely changing leaders’ perspective about leadership and the true source – Jesus Christ. We know it is from the Lord, and we want to begin planning now for the future training of trainers and taking it throughout Kenya and to Rwanda, Burundi, and Uganda.

I have taught this approach to leadership around the world in many countries, but I have not seen the hunger and enthusiasm as I have seen here in Eldoret. The questions, the interaction and the testimonies of change demonstrated the work of God in this place. It was truly humbling to see their hearts and hear of their stories in ministry.

Thank you for your partnership in prayer and financial support to make this a reality and empower these leaders to bring the gospel to their cities in the power of the Holy Spirit.

Ephesians 3:14-21 says, “For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, 15 from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name, 16 that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with power through His Spirit in the inner man, 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; and that you, being rooted and grounded in love, 18 may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, 19 and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled up to all the fullness of God.

20 Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us, 21 to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations forever and ever. Amen.”

 

An Amazing Leadership Conference in Nairobi, Kenya

Leadership Revolution has teamed up with 3 Strands ministry of Kenya to equip pastors and church leaders in the One Leader message on leadership. We meet with some 50 pastors in Nairobi to kick off a 7 day teaching and equipping tour in Kenya.

These pastors are hungry and eager to understand and allow Christ to greatly work through them to reach their world which is in great need. Kenya has a strong base of Christians yet there are plagued with much corruption, poverty, and an increasing amount of radicalism. The answer is not programs but Christ to work in a supernatural way.

The feedback after our conference was amazing. They are looking to training the next wave of leaders as we equip them with many more tools and process. We thank the Lord for doing a great a mighty work here.

Jer 33:3, “Call unto me and I will tell you great and mighty things which you do not know.”
