Kenya ministry names new principal
Tonui recently resigned from the school in Sotik, Kenya, and moved to the capital to serve as principal of the Nairobi Great Commission School.
Established in 1988 by Kenyan church leaders and missionaries, that school trains evangelists from nations as far away as Ghana and Botswana. It has 28 students from Kenya and Uganda, Tonui said, and operates several satellite campuses in cities including Mombasa.
At Siriat Bible School, students receive vocational training in addition to Bible and missions instruction, said Tonui, who earned a master’s in Bible from Abilene Christian University in Texas.
“Vocational skills are quite relevant,” he said, “for these prepare the student to go out to the field armed with an opportunity to do tent-making as well as serving in the ministry.”
Tonui said he hopes to encourage a similar system at the Nairobi school.
“The objective is to create a holistic approaching of training such that, at the end of the day, both the spiritual and physical needs of an individual are addressed,” he said.
Succeeding Tonui at Siriat Bible School is Joseph K. Bett, a teacher at the school.
“I thank God for enabling me to qualify for the (position),” Bett said. “I also thank my wife and our children for praying for me and for wishing the will of God to be done in our family.”
