Paul and Jina, along with their young son Isaiah and daughter Eliana, reside in Nairobi, Kenya doing the work of Missio Dei Discipleship Ministries.

The vision is to see disciplemakers in East Africa become deeply rooted followers of Jesus who participate in God’s mission in their local communities, countries, and continent.

In East Africa, pastors, church leaders, and missionaries lack affordable avenues for training and equipping, often without a support network to allow for deeper formation.

Missio Dei exists to equip in Biblical literacy, train in practical ministry, and have mentoring relationships with pastors, lay leaders, and missionaries in East Africa in partnership with:

  • International Leadership University (ILU), an accredited Christian university in Kenya. The school has been investing in men and women since 1981, with alumni serving all over East Africa
  • Africa Training & Mentoring Network, which offers mentorship, workshops, seminars, and conferences.

Paul is teaching Bible and theology in the Undergraduate school of Theology at ILU and works within the Africa Training and Mentoring Network. Jina provides operations support for Missio Dei and ATMN. Your prayer and financial support are vital to the work of Missio Dei. As pastors, lay leaders, and missionaries grow into healthy and deeply rooted disciples, they go on to plant healthy churches that make healthy disciples, who carry on the mission of Jesus.

Paul and Jina would love to connect with you if you have any questions about the work of Missio Dei or ILU. They can be reached at missiodeidm@gmail.com
