Injili Bible Church Leadership Team

Pastor Joseph Mule Masunga is an Elder at Injili Bible Church. He was born and raised in a Roman Catholic family by a drunkard father. He followed the Roman Catholic faith during his primary school days but later plunged into a life of drunkenness while in secondary school and abandoned Catholicism altogether.

The Lord Jesus Christ saved him in November 1972 after quitting the University of Nairobi and attempting suicide several times. This convinced him that the Lord had set His love upon him before the foundation of the world to be His and to use him in reaching others with the saving grace found in Jesus Christ alone (Eph 1:4). He longed to go straight into the Gospel Ministry but after teaching for a couple of years, he decided to be a secondary school teacher and be Christ’s witness to students; a privilege he felt he was not accorded while a student in high school.

The Lord opened the opportunity in 1974 and in 1977 he graduated from the University of Nairobi with a Bachelor of Education (Science) degree. He taught at Jamhuri High School, Kenya Science Teachers College and partly at Daystar University. He later was transferred to the Kenya National Commission for UNESCO, in an advisory position to the Ministry of Education and other stakeholders in matters of UNESCO.

In his teaching career, he was able to interact with students and served as patron of their Christian Unions. He was involved in the Navigators Ministry among the students in secondary schools in Nairobi. All his years in University and early years in his teaching career, Masunga attended services at Nairobi Baptist Church until 1982 when he transferred his membership to Trinity Baptist Church in Nairobi. He began to teach Sunday school and occasional preaching including open air preaching and helping the youth ministry.

In 1993 he was ordained a deacon of the church until 2004 when he was ordained an Elder at the church. He began to be involved in regular preaching and teaching Sunday school for all ages. He was also involved in outreach ministry in other sister churches in Machakos, Meru, Kajiado and the Kijiji (slum) ministry in Mukuru kwa Njenga, Nairobi. He participated in the church’s in-service theological training programme for pastors from sister churches where he taught practical pastoral ministry.

In 2008, he was released by Trinity Baptist Church, Nairobi to pioneer a new Gospel Ministry in Kawangware slum in Nairobi – Injili Bible Church. He teamed up with other brethren who shared a similar vision and started with a ministry among children by holding vocational Bible school, door to door ministry, tracts ministry as well as inviting contacts and parents of the children for Sunday Worship. They soon realized the great need Kawangware had because of many churches with little influence on the lives of their members and the high rate of crime and drunkenness in Kawangware in general. They started to translate some solid doctrinal books into Kiswahili hopefully to use them among the pastors of these many churches who did not seem to have any doctrinal stand on the pivotal truths of Biblical Christianity. Injili Bible Church started a theological training tailored to meet the needs of the local pastors in Kawangware and a library to support the ministry.

The church was officially constituted on 21st February 2009 with seventeen members. It is his earnest hope and prayer that IBC  shall continue to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ as the Head of the church by seeking to lift Him up in the members’ lives and ministries and trust Him to bring all people to Himself (John 12:32).

Pastor Masunga is married to Salome and they have been blessed with two daughters, Abigail and Joan.
