The Journey ministry was birthed to change a nation. We started at The University of Nairobi in 2004 and it has now expanded to 5 university campuses. The Journey provides an invitational spirituality that draws students to Christ. We focus on training leaders with multiple touch points and various internships. Our largest outreach is called Ascent. Post election violence shattered the country in 2007/2008. Several months later, after God intervened to stop the violence, the Journey leadership launched a hands-on servant leadership program. We want to train a different kind of leader, one that rejects the dominant, greed-based leadership paradigm and embraces the leadership modeled by Jesus. We have 1,600 graduates who see leadership differently. The worst of the pandemic seems to be behind us, the students are able to meet in person, and we have just opened a fifth campus ministry in a different city. We have opened 2 Journey Churches and launched a business to help fund the ministry. The future looks bright and I can’t wait to see what God is going to do!
Rosemarie and I also serve as campus care coordinators for Rosslyn Academy. The school started 75 years ago and has provided quality education for thousands of students. It is a diverse community with 50 nationalities. We have the opportunity to care for the staff who care for the students. It is a privilege! These students also go out and impact nations. Rosemarie is in the process of getting her certification in Spiritual Direction. It is exciting to see how the program is bringing out her giftings that fit each ministry context. We are grateful!
