In America, our chuches seem to love building projects.  Borrowing from a line from the movie "Field of Dreams," we believe "If we build it, they will come."  But it's interesting to note that Jesus didn't use the word "come" in the Great Commission, He said "go."  That approach seems to be the one that Pastor Euticauls Wambua Nzengu of Baptist Chapel in Nairobi Kenya is using.  In 12 years time, not only have they greatly increased membership at their church, but they have planted 6 other churches and developed a youth center in an area slum.

Rev. Euticauls W. Nzengu may be reached through email at [email protected]
