Kenya gained independence from Britain in 1963. Since then British tourism has been a key element of Kenya’s economy, however, unemployment, poverty and crime remain high. Whilst the majority religion is Christianity, Kenya’s ethnic diversity and vast countryside means there are still many unreached with the gospel.

Kenya gained independence from Britain in 1963. Since then British tourism has been a key element of Kenya’s economy, however, unemployment, poverty and crime remain high. Whilst the majority religion is Christianity, Kenya’s ethnic diversity and vast countryside means there are still many unreached with the gospel.

We began work in Kenya in 1895 which led to the founding of the indigenous denominations of Africa Inland Church, Kenya (AIC, Kenya). Currently the AIC, Kenya is estimated to have approximately 5000 local congregations. The AIC Kenya is independent, self-governing and continuing to grow.

There are still a number of unreached and under-discipled people groups in Kenya. Currently we are directly engaged with around 10 least-reached or unreached groups in Kenya. We are committed to take the gospel to those who have not yet heard the good news. Our goal is to work together with our national church partners as we seek to finish the task. We are also involved in numerous other kinds of ministry (medical, teaching, theological education, children’s work) which contribute to Christ-centered churches who in turn will reach out to the lost.
