BlueSky Community Student Ministry Staff


Location: Nairobi, Kenya

Start Date: January 2021
Length of Service: 3 years


Overview:

BlueSky Global Ministries’ vision is to see the multinational community in Nairobi, Kenya, spiritually transformed and equipped to influence the world for God’s glory. We do this through three main platforms in Nairobi, Kenya: BlueSky Adventures, Camp BlueSky and BlueSky Community. A BlueSky Community team member serves within the Community program, which focuses on strategic, year-round relational ministry and directly reports to the Community Managing Director. Community team members focused on student ministry concentrate their ministry efforts on the Gigiri, Karen, or Parklands international and British-system school communities within Nairobi. This is an opportunity to influence the multinational community on a global scale through student outreach and discipleship.

The students we serve are an important part of the international community that BlueSky desires to reach.  The students represent a wide variety of countries, cultures, and economic backgrounds from around the world.  Having such a diverse student presence in and around Nairobi presents BlueSky with a great opportunity to share the Truth and gospel of Jesus Christ and to influence those who will one day have influence on their own countries and cultures.
