In Kenya, NEXT partners with our national church planting director, Daniel Kinuthia and his wife Joan. Much of NEXT’s focus through the last several years has been in the North and South Coast province, helping plant numerous churches since 2007. Over the last two years, we have expanded our work in other areas of Kenya including Western Kenya and areas around the Rift Valley.
NEXT is partnering with Daniel to help him see his vision of planting new healthy churches in every county throughout Kenya. We have begun working with Daniel and Joan’s new ministry, Lulu Thamani. This organization works to improve the economic, social and spiritual well-being of people from under-served areas where new churches are planted and established throughout Eastern Kenya. They also have a women’s entrepreneurship program to help the women in these communities. We are working together with Daniel and Joan to develop, equip, and train new leaders, create new discipleship training centers, plant and establish new churches, and see communities transform through the power of the gospel.
