Kenya Highlights:

A Thriving Church Partnership

and Entrepreneurship

Redeemed Gospel Church and Northside Christian Church in Houston, TX have had a “sister church” relationship for 10 years.

What a joy for a team of 9 business leaders and professionals from Northside, plus 3 from Denver, to visit Redeemed, located in Embakasi, Nairobi, in February.

I marvel at all the miracles the Lord orchestrates when we stay committed to and focused on a long-term relationship. I am also filled with excitement and anticipation at what lies ahead as these churches continue to build on this solid foundation and vision together for the future. Josephine Chavaseki, one of the leaders at Redeemed has facilitated and taken advantage of various business training and coaching opportunities over the past six years. The entrepreneurial spirit is palpable on this campus and the business acumen is growing every year.

The Redeemed leadership team presented their 10 year strategic plan for their church while we were there.  Our team facilitated an “Excellence! In Mission Workshop” for the church leaders, as well as an interactive business training for the entrepreneurs.

As I’ve reflected on Jesus’ journey throughout this Passion Week, I was reminded once again how Jesus lived teaching us [through his actions] to:

  • meet people “where they are” and walk alongside them
  • ask insightful questions that point people to God’s Truth
  • remind people who they are as God’s children, uniquely and wonderfully designed
  • celebrate the “ordinary” knowing God can — and does — use everyone
  • not give up on each other
  • love and serve with passion and compassion
Our Kenyan brothers and sisters live this out in powerful ways and challenge me to do the same.
 

We visited many
businesses of these determined and talented entrepreneurs.

We listened,
learned, and laughed a lot!

We prayed together and experienced God’s concrete answers to our prayers.

 

We are going again this summer!  We are partnering with Yobel International to co-facilitate with our Kenyan colleagues a “Train the Trainers” business course.   We have room for 3 to 5 more people.  If you have a heart for people and business, are comfortable facilitating small group discussions, and want to listen, learn and serve with us, contact Melissa.

We are truly grateful for your continued prayer and financial partnership that helps make all of this possible!

Blessings on your celebration of Christ’s resurrection and new life in Him!

 

Because He Lives,

Melissa, Bruce and the T-Ventures Team
