Oscar Muriu – Raising up a legacy of African leaders for the church of Christ worldwide
Oscar Muriu and Graham Joseph Hill discuss Oscar’s passion for raising up a legacy of African leaders for the church of Christ worldwide. They also discuss what the West can learn from African innovations in church planting, leadership development, prayer and discipleship, and much more. They discuss what the churches of the Global North and the Global South can learn from each other, and how they can partner together for God’s mission and harvest. The Global Church Project podcast episode #156.
Pastor Oscar dedicated his life to Christ in 1983, and has served as the Senior Pastor of the Nairobi Chapel since 1991. In that time he has seen the Church grow from a mere 20 people, to over 3,000 people. Pastor Oscar leads a church planting movement of 90 churches, the bulk of which are in Kenya; but others around Africa include Rwanda, Botswana, Malawi, Zambia, Ghana, Liberia, and Ethiopia. His present target is to plant 300 churches; with 210 of them in Kenya; 60 in the rest of Africa (one in each capital city of Africa); and 30 off the continent of Africa in the gateway cities of the world (London, Delhi, Sydney, Hong Kong, Chicago and others). His personal mission is to raise up a legacy of African leaders for the Church of Christ worldwide.
All this began around 30 years ago, when a young pastor Oscar accepted the call to an aging, declining church of 26 people that was close to shutting its doors. Look at it today! Follow God’s call! You never know how God will use you if you surrender fully to him. Oscar is an example of a person fully surrendered to God: a humble and visionary leader, committed to pouring his life into the next generation of pastors, leaders and church planters.
