CBM’s history in Kenya has spanned over 40 years, covering a diverse set of ministries that are rooted in integral mission. From long-term development and leadership training programs to emergency relief, CBM has walked in partnership with the local church and community-based organizations.
CBM partners with the Africa Brotherhood Church (ABC), the African Christian Church and Schools (ACC&S), and ministers in North Eastern Province among refugee and local Kenyan Muslim populations.
The ABC is an indigenous Kenyan denomination with over 1.5 million members in their churches with a mission of integral mission. In partnership, we support programs like Guardians of Hope (GOH) which is an HIV and AIDS ministry, as well as food security and leadership training.
CBM’s partnership with the ACC&S dates back to the early 1970s with programs that include theological education, community development such as food security programming and GOH, as well as emergency relief assistance when needed.
Since the 1980s, CBM has been working in outreach to Somali refugees in the North Eastern Province of Kenya and in Eastleigh, a suburb of Nairobi. We work with grassroots community agencies to help impoverished communities experience the love of Christ through Christian-Muslim dialogue, crisis response and food & community development.
