People in Kenya need to hear the gospel. Droughts, ethnic group clashes, a wide gap between rich and poor, scarce water and urban slums all create tension, leaving people searching for hope. Be the one to meet them where they are to bring the ultimate hope – Jesus!
Come see for yourself how the gospel changes everything. You’ll share the gospel and see lives changed. Streets, markets, schools, homes, hospitals, prisons—everywhere, people are searching. You have the answer they’re looking for: Jesus. Come make memories that will last a lifetime!
Participate in evangelism that is "door to door, street to street, person to person," and connect seekers or believers to local church partners in Nairobi and surrounding villages.
Resonate Global Mission is partnering with ShareWord Global (also know as The Gideons International in Canada) to bring you this exciting opportunity to share the gospel in Kenya and to learn more about the ministries of both organizations in Kenya.

You’ll be well informed with constant communication by the Team Leader.
You will participate in three conference calls ensuring all of your questions are answered.
You will even be given a small homework assignment to get to know the Kenyan culture better
The first part of the trip includes team training in Toronto. You’ll meet everyone and get to know one another before jetting off to a brand new experience!
Once we arrive, you’ll take part in some cultural training led by locals.
After that, you will finish the training with evangelism training. This even includes role-playing so you are more than ready to hit the streets to share the gospel and see people give their life to Christ!
Every day will start with devotions and most days will end with a time of sharing and praying
Most days will include meeting a church and their members before going to share the gospel with them where they prefer. They will take us to a safe place where they are looking to reach out to their neighbours. You will help them share the gospel and point people back to that local church so they can further disciple those you meet. You will have a translator at all times.
One of the days, you will take a break and see some of the beautiful landscape of the country.
You will also visit church services and experience how Christians in Kenya worship God
Come build lasting friendships with your teammates but also with local Kenyans
Within a few weeks of returning, you will attend one last conference call to help you process your experience
Many of our trip members come back excited to share the gospel back home. Don’t be surprised if this trip changes you and fires you up to see souls won for Christ!
Bold and passionate believers who have a desire to grow in their faith and openness to the Holy Spirit's leading
The team will consist of like-minded Christians with one goal: to share the gospel and see lives changed right in front of your eyes
