My son Timothy and I departed from Nairobi on September 28, 2016 to Atlanta, Georgia. From Amsterdam, we sat next to an Indian lady who lives in Greenville. We shared the GOA vision with her and she was thrilled and may be joining us in Greenville. Kitty Mitzger received us and took us to our first meeting . This meeting was to help prepare King Spring Baptist church for a trip to Kenya in April 2017. The meeting went well. Timothy and I enjoyed hospitality of different families for accommodation .

Our first meeting on Friday was with Brightpoint for children. We discussed strategies of improving GOA child sponsorship program . We also agreed there is great need to get more children sponsored to avoid GOA homes getting into food debts. We identified 148 children as having no sponsor. Our prayer is to get them sponsored in this trip. So far in Phase one and two of the trip, 21 children have been sponsored. Praise God. One was sponsored on Saturday the last day of the phase one trip which we spent in prayer, fellowship and leisure at the park with Gabe, Christy, Hudson and Caleb, a beautiful blessed family with lovely two boys.

Our friend Joy Griffin drove us from phase one to West Georgia for phase two of our trip. Timothy and I have been refreshed in this trip especially being accommodated by Richard and Patty for the three nights. We did not have to keep moving to different hosts carrying our luggage. A warm fellowship, warm food, and deep sharing of testimonies with Richard, Patty, and many friends in this area have encouraged us in the mission trip.

Sunday, October 2, which is the world communion Sunday was historic, prophetic and transformational for my son Timothy. It was his first time to be referred to and introduced as a pastor . He has always been referred to as a trainer in his role as History makers Director in Kenya. It was his first time to preach in two International services and to share time with me in Sunday School classes. At the end of the day he was so encouraged that he said God may be speaking to him to study more theological courses in future. 20 children were sponsored on Sunday at Carrollton First United Methodist Church. Our message of Serving God's purpose in our generation had an impact on the congregation . We appreciate the invitation, and leadership provided by Rev. Larry Patton and his team. They were all very warm, kind and hospitable to us. Their love, feedback and complimentary comments to Timothy greatly encouraged him, increased his passion for ministry and may influence his direction greatly. Larry challenged his congregation during the second traditional service to consider building the GOA headquarters church and offices with us. We glorify God for all things.

We spent our last day of phase two at the ILI office. Always a blessing to encourage each other ,pray and plan together to equip leaders to spread the gospel. Timothy enjoyed putting faces to the names that he always new. While at the ILI office,we were blessed to help a young lady understand GOA volunteer program. She seemed a very potential addition to GOA international Team . Pray that she finalizes all her preparation to be able to join us in Nairobi from January 2017.

Please pray with us concerning our major projects.

  • - GOA headquarters church and office construction .The total cost is $530,000.We have raised $40,000 in Kenya. If we could raise $180,000,we would complete phase one of this project . We have not received any donation for this project in this trip so far.
  • - History Makers support. We have not received any funding for this ministry in this trip.
  • - The remaining children who are yet to receive sponsorship.

About Us

The Genesis of GOA

The genus of the GOA is traced back to the humble teaching career of Bishop David Thagana. Bishop David and Rev. Joyce caught the higher calling of preaching the Word to congregations spread in a global setting without boundaries. The couple, with several of their equally spiritually discerning and like-minded friends, heeded the call and set out to the ultimate teaching profession, as shepherds of the lost sheep.

The GOA Founding Team

From the first church planted at Ndungu Njeru in 1991, GOA embarked on a spiritual trailblazing mission to accomplish the task of being witnesses not only in Jerusalem, but even up to the uttermost parts of the world. Todate over 130 churches have been planted in East and central Africa, The United States and Switzerland.

GOA’s Samaria has been the venture mission outreaches to the unreached, in Samburu, Marsabit, Turkana and Garsen.

The GOA Evecutive Board

On assuming the Nairobi urban ministry, Bishop Thagana and his wife continued with the sacrificial streak they had started with the starting of the Tumaini Children's Home in their residence.

GOA as a ministry has prioritized impacting the less fortunate, most threteaned members of the society and the unreached people groups.

Thus, There have been set up eight fully funtional children homes caring for above 450 children across Kenya. There have also been constructed five schools providing education to over 1500 children from very needy .

The fire of reaching out to suffering children has led to the starting of orphanages like Tumaini Kinangop , Beat the Drum , Strong Tower , Merciful Redeemer , Christ Compassion Rehabilitation Centre , among others.

Our Core Values

These following Core Values are the foundation upon which all GOA ministry activities are built:

  • Embrace People:

    Because people matter to God, and Christ died for all people; we treat all people as His children while fulfilling the Great Commission – making disciples of all nations.

  • Compassionately Serve:

    Jesus has given us the model of caring for the poor and suffering, which we strive to follow to the best of our abilities.

  • Pursue Peace:

    We will strive to bring an end to conflict in our communities.

  • Embody Godly Leadership:

    Our leaders will practice ethical and accountable governance and management, governing and managing our ministries with excellence.


Glory Outreach Assembly exists to glorify God by fulfilling the Great Commission, reaching out to both the churched and the un-churched peoples of Kenya, East Africa and beyond; to develop fully mature disciples of Jesus Christ.

Our Governance Model

We believe in putting as much of our resources as possible into our ministries rather than administrative costs. However, as our organization is growing exponentially, our ministries require additional administrative support. Our head office staff now consists of a Finance Department, Media and IT, offices of 4 ministry's Directors, their Assistants, Program Cordinators and the Executive Director. They are all housed in very modest rented office space in Nairobi.

Our key leadership structure helps us to focus on ministry oversight, vision casting and funding.

We take great care in the development of a clear vision and strategic plans for our ministries. Part of the planning process includes detailed budget preparation. Each project budget includes an administrative overhead allotment of 10% to accommodate these administrative functions

Board of Governor's Policies

The GOA Board of Governors is the top organ of GOA.

The Board governs with emphasis on:

  • Outward vision, rather than internal preoccupation

  • All board members speaking into the governing process

  • Strategic leadership, more than administrative detail

  • Slear distinction of Board and chief executive roles

  • Collectivity, rather than individual decisions

  • The future, rather than past or present
