About Us:


Who Are We

We are an indigenous equipping ministry based in Kenya (East Africa) established in 2005. We carried two other names before rebranding to Spear Africa Foundation in 2017. We serve in partnership with others nationally and internationally to provide contextualized ministry training and resources for Pastors and Church leaders who impact their communities with practical and transformational, gospel-centered ministries through local churches for God’s glory.


Our Vision Statement:

Transformed and healthy church leaders in Eastern Africa, leading healthier churches that impact their communities for God’s glory.


Our Mission Statement:

To provide contextual resources to develop, equip and activate church leaders towards empowering churches pact in their communities and beyond.


Our Central Ministry Focus: [I.D.E.A]

Kenya is divided up into 47 counties. Our aim is to take our training programs and resources to a minimum of 50 key leaders in every county in Kenya, and then task those leaders with the responsibility to re-invest in others across their networks in the county. This is a principle of reaching many leaders through intentional multiplication. Out of these key leaders, teams are then mobilized to serve on short term trips as we go and respond to other training needs in the East African countries around us. We do not export our organizational brand but we are always ready to export our trainings and ministry tools to other nations. We use the following process in determining and implementing projects:


I - IDENTIFY and connect with key church leaders and then prioritize their contextual needs.

D - DEVELOP church leaders with messaging towards the enhancement of their character, knowledge, beliefs and practices.

E - EQUIP church leaders with ministry tools, training and resources to enhance their capacity for effective and joyful ministry.

A - ACTIVATE church leaders to utilize the skills and tools acquired as they implement the new paradigms strategically and in multipliable ways.


Our Key Priorities:

There are many needs in the mission field of under-trained and under-resourced churches in Africa. As a result, after 10 years of ministry, we went through a process of determining a few priority areas so that our ministry can have a clearly targeted agenda. We desire to see church transformation in the following areas of ministry:

2. Theology and Leadership:

It is estimated that there are 2.2 Million evangelical churches around the World. In the case of Eastern Africa, the church is exploding through the birth of thousands of independent African denominations that reproduce themselves daily in remote and poor communities. Unfortunately, many are led by pastors with little or no Biblical training. Most of these pastors are also often overstretched because of the spiritual and physical needs that they have to respond to in the communities. This often presents a compromised theology and unhealthy ministry philosophies that lead to unhealthy leadership practices. We are helping pastors to go back to the basics of Biblical theology and healthy, joyful leadership.


3. Scripture engagement:

If we want to see a sustainable revival in Africa, the anchor of it all must be in Scripture. Biblical illiteracy contributes majorly to a syncretic gospel in Africa. The Great Commission was about all peoples becoming disciples. But what if they do not know how to read? Over 70% of our people learn and communicate orally. Using well proven Orality strategies, we come alongside the church to catalyze both access and effective engagement to scripture. Our goal is all people, in all cultures accessing God’s Word and engaging with it in practical application.


4. Worldview issues:

One of the critical roles of the Church in society is to be a voice of reason on worldview issues especially when culture clashes with faith. This responsibility is a lot more serious for African pastors where cultural worldviews continue to influence life’s choices even for believers. This often hinders the church’s ability to effectively make disciples and mobilize believers for mission. Biblical marriage and family often meets cultural roadblocks in tribal communities. We partner with others to educate pastors and church leaders on the Biblical Worldview for the sacredness of human life and equip them with tools to influence a life-giving culture wherever the church exists, while developing diverse forms of life-giving ministries on the platform of the church. It is our conviction that the message of the sacredness of human life, cannot be separate from the Great commission to make disciples of all nations.


5. Impact Outreach

Our entire strategy is about equipping and resourcing churches, so that they can impact their communities for God’s glory. Therefore, we only undertake very few critical, direct-impact ministry projects. These are designed to encourage the churches we partner with, maintain a limited connection with communities that benefit from our ministry and demonstrate effective application of the paradigms of ministry that we teach. We recognize that many of the pastors we target are poor and serve in poor communities, so our impact outreach programs are intended to empower the local leaders. We do this with local and international short term mission teams that join us to conduct school outreaches, medical camps, feeding programs, and other empowerment projects.


Our Core Values:

These values inform our ministry culture and define the boundaries for our overall philosophy as an indigenous organization:

- A foundation of scripture

- A Covering of prayer

- A pillar of transformational relationships

- A pillar of multipliable strategies

- A focus on the next generation


Statement of faith:

We are an African indigenous organization fully submitted to the Christian faith and anchored on strong evangelical beliefs. We believe in the power of the Holy Spirit and the Lordship of Jesus Christ. As a statement of faith, we subscribe to the Lausanne Covenant of 1974 .


Our mission is also driven by a philosophy of healthy partnership, networking and collaboration. We recognize there are many areas where organizations may not agree upon. As such we apply the principle of “in essentials, unity; in nonessentials, liberty; in all things, charity.” For Spear Africa Foundation, the essentials are anchored on The Cape Town Commitment of 2010.
