On Why Biblical Church Discipline Matters in Missions, with Ken Mbugua and Aubrey Sequeira (Missions Talk, Ep. 6)By A. Sequeira, J. Mack Stiles, K. Mbugua, R. Robertson | 12.15.2022
Churches on the mission field aren’t exempt by Jesus’ command to practice church discipline.
“Western organizations land in places like Nairobi with the apparent aim of growing their brand. Churches like ours almost become a hindrance because we are already doing a lot of those things.”
Generally speaking, pastors should be financially supported by the people they minister to. Agree or disagree?
God’s Word languishes in the pulpit because churches have been taught to invest in buildings and projects, not men who have given themselves to the ministry of the Word.
In which pastor Ken Mbugua laughs at—and then answers—the question: Are church membership and church discipline just American ideas?

If there’s ever a time to trust in the sufficiency of God’s Word, it’s in the midst of political turmoil.
In and around the shadows of the pulpit, soul-damning dangers lurk.
Those duped by the prosperity gospel don’t just need arguments against the texts they misunderstand. They need healthy churches that explain to them the entire revelation of God, and how that narrative is working toward something quite glorious.
Ken Mbugua, a pastor in Nairobi, answers the question, “What do you wish American pastors, churches, and missionaries knew about Christianity in Africa?”
Pastors, you don’t have to wait until you feel like your church is mature before you start intentionally raising up leaders.
The main thing I wish American Christians understood about African Christianity is that there’s no such thing as “African Christianity.”
If Africa were filled with healthy churches, the prosperity gospel would not be wrecking us the way that it is now.
