My name is Kevin Muriithi. 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. 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:
- The questions about life.
- Ministry to emerging generations in Africa.
- Faith in the public sphere: culture, society, leadership and social action.
- Biographies of my heroes Augustine, Kwame Bediako and Charles Spurgeon.
Some of the most interesting articles in this blog are:
- An excerpt of my book “A Curious Faith: Love, Loss and Living“
- A dialogue with an atheist friend about the Bible and Jesus.
- What the field of apologetics is: What, Why, Examples and an African issue.
- The question of doctrine, philosophy and atheism in Kenya.
- The agony of losing my brother and how God comforted me.
- My longer personal story and pastoral work.
- The place of the church and its intersection with society and ethnicity.
