Great Commission Church of God


From our humble beginning as an independent Church of God ministry in the fall of 2000, our work has changed considerably. We began as a "house church", then grew to co-pastor a small, local congregation in the beautiful state of Colorado, USA. We also began using the Internet to increase the scope of our work.

In 2003, we were contacted by a woman representing a group of rural Kenyans, looking for someone to teach them God's Word. In May of that year, we agreed to pastor what would become the Great Commission Church of God in Manyatta, Kenya.

From that humble beginning 20 years ago, we have grown and now serve six congregations in Kenya. In addition to Manyatta, we now serve groups in Kisumu, Homa Bay, and on the Indian Ocean coast in Mombasa, Kilifi, and Lamu. These last three were already part of another Church of God organization, but were abandoned and left without a minister several years ago. Of the 138 attending those three congregations, 78 have a solid Church of God background from childhood and family.

The Kisumu and Homa Bay congregations are in Western Kenya, on the shore of Lake Victoria. The Kisumu group is a few years old and has now grown to 19 baptized members, plus their children. Homa Bay is the most recent addition to the flock. There are about a dozen attending and we expect some baptisms in the very near future.

UPDATE: We may have just inherited a seventh congregation! In June of 2023, we were asked by Fred Coulter of the Christian Biblical Church of God to look in on a congregation in Migori, formerly with the CGI organization. Their leader said he represents 33 scattered members in Migori, Rongo, and parts in between. We are just getting to know them, but they have already agreed to join us in Mombasa for the 2023 Feast of Tabernacles.

Weekly Sabbath Services

Due to health issues, we are no longer be able to host local weekly Sabbath services. We suggest joining us for Live Services with the nice folks at the Christian Biblical Church of God every Saturday at 1:30 PM (Pacific) 4:30 PM (Eastern) UTC 20:30.
