About Us

Mavuno Beginnings

Mavuno Christian Ministries began in 2013 with a small pre-school of 29 students.  We met in a church with the permission of the pastor with just two teachers.  The “baby” class was headed by teacher Joyce and the middle and top class was headed by missionary Bobbi.  Every year another class was added to the school and at this time we have over 200 students from pre-school to seventh grade (P-7).

In 2013 Mavuno Christian Ministries purchased 21/2 acres of land. We began Mavuno Christian Fellowship January 11, 2015. We also moved the school to the property.  The church purchased two large white tents (thanks to generous gifts from the US) where we met for church.  The school met also in the tents and outdoors.  

Through a very generous donation we were able to build a church building.  We also were able to build one block of classrooms.  Younger students met in the classrooms and older students met in the church.

In 2016 we realized the need for more classrooms and again we received a generous donation and another block of classrooms was built.  And the school kept growing.

At this time we have the church, three blocks of classrooms, an office for the head teacher, a small library and a lunch room and kitchen.  God has indeed been very good!

We have graduated two classes of our beginning students from P-7 and they are attending high schools in this area.  


Statement of Faith

We believe God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and are one God. We believe Jesus Christ, the Son of God came to the earth as fully human and fully God, and sacrificed Himself by the death of the cross, and was raised from the dead three days later.
