In March at Hill City we had an amazing first service here we also held our Launch service at Hill City on the 29th of March, to celebrate our settling into our new home here, we also had an incredible Count Me In updates.

In April we hosted our Family Fun Day, constructed the utilities needed at the facility, which included the lower parking lot, footpaths, the children classes, drainage and the preteens dome.

In May the developments involved a pilot project for landscaping beginning with the land next to the lower parking lot.. There was also construction of the water tanks, laying carbro on the marathon classes area, the leveling of the remaining mounds in the compound and the construction of the baby central area.,

In June we moved offices from Belle Vue- Drive In, reconfigured the Main Dome sound, lighting and screen displays, launched the Fearless Acres initiative, we had the amazing series WINNING: Don’t let life stop you by our senior Pst. Muriithi Wanjau.

In July, We have had an array of speakers taking us through the series #Bold: Living daring, purposeful lives. It is surprising how time flies, this marked the end of the fourth month at the Hill City campus. We also relaunched the Fearless Acres initiative in the other 2 Nairobi Mavuno church campuses, held the Healing and Worship Weekend and seminar and service and hosted the High-school student rally by our teens church.

In August we have Pst. Oscar Muriu taking us through the sermon series, The Four Horsemen Of Financial Ruin. Mavuno 58 at Buruburu is about to relaunch and start  a Sunday service from the Saturday 4-6 pm service.

It is amazing what the Lord has done in our midst in the last four months, since we moved to our own home-Hill City. We thank all of you for being fearless and being apart of the Mavuno Family.

 

Fearless Acres

Last year, in the process of moving to our Hill City campus, we identified a group of investors* who were willing to invest in our dream to create an investment project that would benefit all Mavunites but also raise funds for our capital campaign. They undertook to pay the full cost for purchase of a well situated 40 acre property and to further add value to it including fencing, borehole, road grading and utilities. The land borders the Great South Eastern bypass linking Nairobi to Kangundo at the Joska area.

9 years of Lifechange

The launch of Mavuno Hill City this past Sunday March 30th 2014 was the culmination of 9 Afteryears of transformative experience for thousands of lives.

This launch marked a twofold moment, it was a time to pause and reflect on the goodness of God and how his work on the cross has impacted lives at Mavuno church but also a time to chat the future course for more transformation.

The experience for individuals through the Mizizi experience, life change in marriages and families through the Ndoa and Lea experiences, positive change in workplaces because of the Ombi experience and societal transformation through the Hatua experience.Afters

It was a time when many boldly stepped up to declare their freedom in Christ from various dysfunctions that have held them back from living for God in their personal  lives, work spaces and the society. It marked by prayer and thanksgiving for what God has done in our lives. Nine years of thousands of ‘befores’ and  ‘afters’
