Teens For Christ Kenya initially started in 2004 as a Bible Club tagged “Teens For Christ Bible Club” where Pastor Moses met a number of teenagers and youth from the slums and surrounding areas to study the Word of God and just encourage each other. They were also involved in printing branded t-shirts for organizations and distribution of evangelism fliers that were distributed in schools and churches. He started in an area called Eastleigh in Nairobi where he set up a small office in his one-room house.
The Bible Club was run in a Bible School within Nairobi city and it is then that a family from the United States who were in Kenya on a Mission Trip noticed what Pastor Moses was doing and they took him to meet another organization in the US that was already active in youth ministry. Pastor Moses received intense training in Theology and upon his return to Kenya. TFC Kenya was registered in 2005 as a non-profit making religious organization registered under the Societies Act of the government of Kenya with a specific focus on reaching teenagers with the Gospel and training them on holy living.
TFC Kenya started with just 10 schools/chapters and with time, we have seen the great hand of God as we are now in over 500 schools! Doors for ministry in several schools have been opened and more are still calling onto us to start ministry in their schools because our reputation of consistency and passion for ministry has preceded us.
We currently have our head office in Nairobi, Kenya’s capital city, although the TFC Kenya work is taking place in other regions in the country. Luke Amoke is now our Executive Director of Kenya, overseeing all of schools in that country.
We have also ventured into Uganda, Rwanda and South Sudan where ministry has picked up quite well and we are hopeful that soon TFC will be in Tanzania and Burundi.
