Coming Soon:

"Saving Jesus Christ Biblical Enigmas" is a book authored by Pastor James Yoon, which seeks to attract the attention of young readers, the future of our nation. The messages presented in his writings seek to increase the faith of young readers, who will eventually become the leaders of the nation, and endeavors to encourage these future leaders to promote love, compassion, and work towards a society free of violence, immorality, and vice.



Although churches in Kenya, as well as throughout the continent, appear to be growing, they are unfortunately tainted with corruption. It is the hope of the ministry to spark a movement of repentance that resonates throughout Kenya and beyond.  We wish to be a spark that kindles the fire of revival, which burns the entire African continent with God's word.

Currently around 2,000 children are attending four schools located in less fortunate villages of Kiberia and Kairobangi. An elementary school is also located in the village of Masai.

Pastor Yoon and his wife, Grace, currently live with 40 African orphans, minister to AIDS-afflicted widows and operate a mobile medical mission.
