Rev. David Kipkemoi A Mutai spent his early childhood in Bomet County (Kenya), and he moved to Nakuru County (Kenya) with his father when he was a teenager. After graduating high school David was employed and trained by the government in telecommunications. Later, David served as a missionary in Northern Kenya. He holds an Advanced Diploma in Theology and Missions from Kenya Highlands University, formerly Kenya Highlands Bible College. David has been married to his wife Alice for more than 37 years, and they live in Nakuru County. They have six children: Enock (married to Jessica), Margaret (married to Wesley), Deborah (married to Brian), Naomi (married to Jimmy), Elijah, and Kezia.
While working full-time in civil service, David worked part-time in ministry. In April 1984, he felt God’s calling on his life while serving as a youth leader at a youth camp organized by Africa Gospel Church. David and his wife Alice joined full-time ministry in 1987. He served in mission leadership of the Africa Gospel Church for 17 years before taking early retirement in 2013. He worked for 5 years with Project 82 Kenya, which is a ministry focused on helping children have safe, stable environments for them to grow and thrive. Project 82 Kenya does more than simply help improve children’s situations; they are creating sustainable communities that will no longer need aid. David is currently serving with Catalyst For Africa as an East African Coordinator. He and his wife Alice are financially supporting several children, so they can attend school.
Ministry: Immanuel Africa Gospel Church–Rongai and Catalyst For Africa
Africa Gospel Church was founded by World Gospel Mission missionaries in 1932 and was registered in Kenya in 1961. David is involved in leadership training with Africa Gospel Church, where he uses Catalyst For Africa training materials. Because of the leadership training, the local church is now a thriving church with growing church attendance and a higher ranking in the district for ministry performance. The church is often involved in building projects. David is very active in planning activities for his local church, Immanuel Africa Gospel Church–Rongai.
Catalyst For Africa is partnering with David to bring leadership training to both urban and rural areas of Kenya. Through leadership training, the local churches are witnessing the personal growth of the leadership and the growth of congregations. David uses Catalyst For Africa training materials and Core Values as he plans and executes leadership training within East African countries.
