Cell Church Development (92087)

Cell Church is a strategy for church growth, discipleship and leadership training that impacts communities with the benefits of the Gospel. It thrives in many countries and has grown as a movement in churches across many cultures.

Our vision for Kenya is to see the church experience and express the love of God through adopting the threefold 'DNA' strands of cells:

loving God
loving one another
loving the lost.

This project trains churches in how to establish and multiply cell groups that are the focus of growing disciples, pastoral care, accountability and empowerment for the ministries of church members. We expect this to lead to an independent Kenyan network of cell churches that will coordinate the training of still more churches, and which will reflect theologically on the indigenous expressions of cell that will develop.

Our main objectives are:

  1. for more than 25 churches per year to adopt and develop cell church principles, seeking particularly to develop this expression of church amongst the Forgotten People Groups.
  2. to support church leaders through the process of change that establishes cell church.
  3. to train potential cell leaders to coordinate effective groups that grow and multiply.
  4. to train cell mentors in each church to support and encourage the cell group leaders.
  5. to train and develop local trainers passionate about extending the work.
  6. to establish a sustainable, effective Cell Church, we will encourage local churches to network together to share best practices. This will commence with a national conference in 2012 with the aim of creating a National Cell Church Resource Centre by the end of 2015.
  7. to reproduce the opportunities of Cell Church in other mission fields.
