SERVING KENYA IN UNITY

As we passionately pursue our divine calling, we see:

  • Mature disciples making disciples of Jesus Christ amongst least-reached communities.
  • Christian leaders influencing Kenya with integrity and biblical truth.
  • Missional churches partnering with us to proclaim Christ and express his love and compassion.
  • Kenyan missionaries engaging in cross-cultural ministry locally and globally.

Within SIM Kenya, we see:

  • Flourishing, prayerful missionaries practicing disciple-making and accountability.
  • Multi-ethnic and multi-skilled teams serving together in unity.
  • Flexible, effective structures empowering missionaries for ministry.

Communities where He is least known

Gujarati

The Gujarati people number nearly 200,000, and primarily live in Nairobi, as well as along the coast. They originate from the state of Gujarat in India and are stereotypically considered to be good at business. In Kenya, roughly half of Gujaratis are Hindu, 13% are Muslim, and one third belong to other small Indian-based religions. While only 0.1% of this community call themselves Christians, an even smaller number (0.02%) are evangelicals. The Gujaratis’ close-knit family structures make it difficult for members to be open to new ideas from those outside their community.

 

Sakuye

With a little more than 30,000 people, the Sakuye are a small Cushitic tribe related to the Rendille. They live along the Kenyan border with Ethiopia, east of Moyale. They speak Borana, the main language of the region, and were traditionally nomadic herders but have begun to practice farming. The Sakuye follow a syncretic mix of animism and Islam. They adhere to strict customs governing marriage and families. Just 0.4 per cent of Sakuyes are Christian, and no known evangelical believers or churches exist among them.
