Urban Church Planting Consultation – Nairobi

Twenty-four pastors and church leaders met in Nairobi to attend the Urban Church Planting Consultation facilitated by Dan Sheffield and Kim Henderson, both members of the National Leadership Team of the Free Methodist Church in Canada.

IMGP1519      The consultation highlighted the need to target cities because of the increasing rate of urbanization, especially in developing countries.  Most   IMGP1542churches in Kenya are in the rural areas particularly in the western part of the country.  Participants also learned of the unique characteristics of the city and the challenges of urban ministry.  They were divided into annual conference groups to strategize how they would reach the cities in their respective conferences. 

Kim Henderson led the participants in sharing their ministry setting, challenges and joys.  This was a valuable experience as everyone had opportunity to share and learned that they were not alone but IMGP1533many were experiencing the same things.

Pray for Bishop Dingili as he leads the Free Methodist Church Kenya to be more effective in urban ministry.  Pray for churches in the urban centers of Nairobi, Eldoret, Kericho, Kakamega, Mombasa and Nakuru.
