We are committed to building a God-centered community for the culturally displaced.

Our vision is to build a church community for the culturally displaced - people whose primary cultural identity is something other than the culture in which they currently live. This includes internationals who have moved to Kenya from around the world as well as Kenyans who, perhaps because they were educated overseas or lived abroad for a while, have returned home and found that they have difficulty relating to their native culture. Our goal is to gather those people into a community where they can find friends, find God and, ultimately, find the life God has wired them to live. Nakuru is a perfect place for this kind of church. It is one of the fastest-growing cities in East Africa, with a rapidly growing population of culturally-displaced people.

  • "My conviction is that all need to hear the Good News of the Kingdom of God in a way that will speak to them through an expression that identifies with their heart language. There is, therefore, a need to plant western style churches in major cities of this nation for foreigners as well as returning nationals."
    Noah Gitau - National Director, Association of Vineyard Churches Kenya
  • "It is my opinion that a valuable strategy in building a self-supporting Vineyard movement in a nation is the planting of International Churches."
    Bubba Justice - Pastor, Inverness Vineyard; Coordinator for Learning Community, Vineyard USA Missions
  • "International churches, often in key cities, can be important not only because they bring the good news of the Kingdom to particular groups in society, but because they can be a strategic resource for the support and sustainability of the growing national movement. Adam and Melody Mosley understand and share this vision."
    Jim Pool - Regional Coordinator for Sub-Saharan Africa, Vineyard USA
  • "Kenya has a relatively high percentage of expatriates as well as Kenyan nationals who have considerable international exposure, making it an ideal destination for an international church planter."
    Doug Brown - Senior Pastor, Karen Vineyard Church (Nairobi)
