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

  • Clear distinction of Board and chief executive roles

  • Collectivity, rather than individual decisions

  • The future, rather than past or present
