My name is Kevin Muriithi.

A pastor’s heart, a scholar’s mind and a leader’s hands are thee things central to who I am and what I do. I serve as a youth pastor at PCEA Loresho. I apply my passion for theology, apologetics and ministry through part-time lecturing at Pan Africa Christian University. I am involved in postgraduate research exploring the intersection of youth culture and faith formation. I seek to apply my pastoral ministry and scholarship in the mentorship of the next generations for impact.

I call Africa my motherland, and Kenya my home country. I was born in a small hospital in Nakuru but I have spent most of my life in Nairobi, the city under the sun. I am married to Jessica, and being a family man has enriched my perspective on life.

A little bit about me:

  • Previous work experience: youth leadership, energy, engineering, and social entrepreneurship.
  • Current work experience: youth pastor at PCEA Loresho, an adjunct lecturer at Pan Africa Christian University and leader of Apologetics Kenya.
  • Educational background: electrical engineering, energy studies, and theology.
  • Speaking and teaching interests: inter-generational youth ministry, mentorship/ministry to emerging generations, apologetics, theology, and youth/family issues.
  • Professional Memberships: International Association for the Study of Youth Ministry and the Africa Society of Evangelical Theology
  • Hobbies: Music, violin, motorbikes, soccer (I’d have been Ronaldinho in another lifetime), books 🙂

I am passionate about the gospel of Jesus Christ and the discipleship of emerging generations.

I grew up in the church but came into a living relationship with Jesus Christ later, after my college years of seeking the truth, sometimes in dark places. Having worked as a power systems engineer with the country’s utility, I pursued post-graduate theological education and currently serve as a youth pastor at PCEA Loresho, adjunct lecturer in theology & ministry at Pan Africa Christian University, co-leading Apologetics Kenya and a writer & editor for The Gospel Coalition Africa.

Writing gives me a space to air my thoughts and in a sense, to know more about myself, others and the world. Theo is a fancy word for God and grimage the shorter version of pilgrimage and hence this blog is my pilgrimage with God. With a view to post monthly, I welcome and invite you to explore:

Some of the most interesting articles in this blog are:

  1. An excerpt of my book “A Curious Faith: Love, Loss and Living
  2. A dialogue with an atheist friend about the Bible and Jesus.
  3. What the field of apologetics is: What, Why, Examples and an African issue.
  4. The question of doctrine, philosophy and atheism in Kenya.
  5. The agony of losing my brother and how God comforted me.
  6. My longer personal story and pastoral work.
  7. The place of the church and its intersection with society and ethnicity.
