Serving the church in East Africa
About Us

Our Mission Statement

African Team Ministries is a Christian ministry working as an intermediary between African and American churches. With help from Episcopal, Methodist, Presbyterian, Lutheran, and Anglican denominations, we provide funding for orphan and refugee relief missions and evangelism in East Africa. The support we receive is sent directly to our partnering Bishops to provide school fees, tuition, books, and uniforms. This support ensures that the children receive an education and a measure of stability needed to rebuild their minds. We currently have children registered for sponsorship in Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, and Rwanda. Thru our support we are giving the gift of HOPE!


African Team Ministries was founded in 1984 by Bishop Festo Kivengere of Uganda. In the last 25+ years we have been blessed with the chance to work with many bishops, churches, and God driven individuals. Some of the partnerships were with:
Bishop Gideon Maghina – Tanzania
Bishop Gerard Mpango – Tanzania
Bishop Ernest Shalita – Uganda
Archbishop Livingstone Nkoyoyo – Uganda
Bishop Zablon Nthamburi – Kenya 
Bishop Joseph Wasonga - Kenya
Dr. John Gicheru – Kenya
Rev. David Gathanju - Kenya


Our President is Keith Jesson and his wife Susanne. We are located in Monrovia, California and have a staff to assist you with questions or requests you may have. Please feel free to contact us at (626) 359-5075 or at
