We recognize the importance of training and mentoring leaders to nurture equitable, just and peaceful communities. Just like Christ calls us to discipleship, GOA works with members to mentor and train leaders especially among the youthful congregants who will take up the leadership mantle and sustain the future God-fearing and loving communities. These projects have worked very well and touched the lives of over 20,000 people: BTCP- 30 pastors in Samburu and Meru region, ILI – over 15,000 in 10 years all over East Africa, post secondary – 47 leaders and end time glory training centre – 75

GOA Global University
GOA marked the beginning of a new era when on 9th June 2012 in Tharaka, Meru, the GOA Global University (GGU) was launched. It was led by Bishop Thagana and the Director of GOA Switzerland Rebbeka Siegwart, in Partnership with the CGT Church from Switzerland. As a reflection of the keen interest in higher education in Kenya, 33 students were registered on the first day and three courses were introduced: International Leadership Institute, Global Outreach Seminar and Fund Development.
The GGU class in Tharaka has been meeting in the GOA Marimanti church one week per month. So far we are almost done with the first year. The diploma students will be graduating in February 2016. The vision for the GGU for the next five years is to launch it in three other regions in rural areas where costs are much less, and to launch one main campus in a Kenyan urban Centre.
