Our Story

Jane Wairegi and her late husband, Stephen, started Living the Faith Ministry 501(C)(3) in 2009. For many years, Stephen and Jane lived and served among needy locals in a semi-arid area in Thika, Kenya. This experience not only taught them the best way to reach communities for Christ, but it also created a deep passion for touching lives, one by one, by bringing them the love of Jesus Christ. Together, they believed that one life changed by Christ can bring a change for future generations.

Headquartered in Birmingham, Alabama, the ministry has planted and built eight churches throughout Kenya, securing church property valued at more than $35,000.  In addition, Living the Faith has raised monies to build two water wells worth $32,000.

Our desire is to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ. Our work consists of planting churches and community transformation throughout Kenya. We train and equip local missionaries, who work along with us, to reach the innermost parts of Africa. We do this by meeting their spiritual, physical and emotional needs by living out the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Our Passion

Making Christ known and restoring hope to the fainting hearts by touching people’s lives to make a difference.

Our Vision

To expand the Kingdom of God; make disciples of all people.

Our Mission

Reaching the people in the innermost parts of Africa and meeting their spiritual, physical and emotional needs by living out the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Our Verse

“When He [Jesus] saw the crowds, He had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd.” Matthew 9:36

A Word from Our Founder

April 23, 2019 marks 10 years since Living the Faith Ministry was registered as a 501(c)(3) non profit organization. Over these last years a lot of good changes have occurred in the villages that Living the Faith has served. We have worked in Gatuanyaga, Juja Farm and Mt. Elgon. In these villages, many lives have been transformed and many have opened their hearts to Jesus…
