In his ministry, leadership and shepherdship In The Foot Steps of the Chief Shepherd Jesus Christ, Dr. Mbuva has engaged in ministry where people get delivered from sin and death in Christ, healed, taught, counseled, reconciled, mentored, comforted, blessed, and married. It is now his desire to see KICC grow to her higher spiritual heights as it develops and matures in Kingdom worship life, Kingdom service life, Kingdom prayer life, Kingdom giving life, Kingdom caring life, Kingdom loving life, Kingdom witnessing life, Kingdom teaching life, Kingdom seeking life, Kingdom believing, Kingdom practicing, and Kingdom making disciples life. For it is about Jesus Christ, and the Kingdom of God He has instituted in peoples’ hearts. It is my earnest prayer that Jesus increases in my life, and I decrease.
