By Grace Alone

“Kwa neema peke yake” means “by grace alone” in Kiswahili. The Neema (Neh-eh’-muh) congregation is a place of new beginnings for many friends who are new to the United States. Pastors Charles Kenya and Augustine Mutabesha lead services in both Kiswahili and English each Sunday in the sanctuary at The Bridge at Green Street (317 Green Street, Spartanburg, SC) 9am-12pm

Meet Pastor Charles Kenya

While we are originally from Vihiga,Kenya near Kisumu and Kakamega, God has been gracious to give us an opportunity to serve his people in Spartanburg. Never in my life would Ihave dreamed of preaching in Swahili in SC leave alone Spartanburg. But here we are right in the middle of our master’s plan. We knew we would be involved in ministry when we came to USA but Swahili was not among the list. Praise God for his wonderful plan. We enjoy the Swahili ministry.
