OneLife Africa

dual servingOneLife Africa is an inspiring scholarship and discipleship program of high school students in Kenya. Most of the students come out of Mathare Slum in Nairobi and the rural village of Nyakach in western Kenya. This ministry was born out of Andrew and Stephanie Onguka’s desire to serve Christ by bringing hope to the poor through access to high school education. In the Kenyan educational system, the students attend school year-round, mostly in boarding schools around the country. During their school breaks they attend camps organized by OneLife to strengthen their relationship with Christ.

Redeemer sends a mission team annually to come alongside the OneLife students and put on a discipleship camp to develop their relationship with Christ through large group lessons, testimonies, small group bible studies, games and crafts, among other things.

Additionally, construction is beginning on a Student Leadership Center in Nyakach to offer a residential program to graduates in their gap-year that incorporates academic, Bible-based curriculum, hands-on training and community outreach.
