The Moravian Church in Kenya was started in 2002 by Bishop Paul Kamau Kabaiya. Between 1972 and 1982, Rev. Paul K. Kabaiya worked with the Moravian Church
Rukwa when it was under the Moravian Church in Western Tanganyika ("MCWT") as a Mission Province. During this period in Rukwa, Brother Rev. Dr. Jorgen Boytler worked in Kasangu as a missionary and
Bishop P. Kabaiya was the Principal of Kilangala Bible School.
Due to the poor health of Bishop Paul K. Kabaiya's parents, he was permitted by the Provincial Board of the MCWT to relocate to Kenya where his parents were residing
to be near to them.. In 2002, with consent from Bishop I.R. Nicodemo, Bishop Paul started the Moravian Church Kenya Mission during the month of September.
The Moravian Church Kenya Mission now has twelve (12) congregations in six (6) Kenyan provinces of: Ruiru (Central Province), Ikutha (Eastern Province),
Taveta (Coast Province), Vihiga (Western Province), Kabarnet (Rift Valley Province) and Kisumu (Nyanza Province).
The church was recognized legally by the Government of Kenya by registration under the Laws of the Republic of Kenya and got a certificate by the name MORAVIAN CHURCH
IN KENYA in 2012.
The mission was inaugurated by Bishop Dr. I.R. Nicodemo of the MCWT on the 6th July 2008. He recommended and ordained Rev. Paul Kamau Kabaiya as the
Presbyter and a second pastor Rev. Henry Luyai.
The Moravian Church in Kenya has its own written operational constitution which is consistent with the constitution of the Unitas Fratrum.
The Executive Committee has the following:
a) Bishop Paul Kamau Kabaiya – Chairman of the Board
b) Brother Humphreys Willis Okwrira – Assistant Chairman
c) Rev. Henry Luyai – Executive Secretary
d) Mrs. Mary Njeri Gachuma – Assistant General Secretary
e) Brother James Chege – General Treasurer
There are also twelve (12) evangelists all of whom are members of the board (Mission Board)
"Go and make disciples of all nations."
