  1. The information is not all correct.
    He has never served at Parklands Baptist Church but at Nairobi Baptist Church, Ngong road not parklands. Nairobi Baptist Church and Parklands Baptist Church are different.

    Kindly do correct the information.

    In other news, Rev. Calisto was a gift to us and has brought Revival and renewal in Baptist. We are thankful for the 5years we’ve had him lead us. CITAM thank you for the missionary you sent to us. May he serve to drive CITAM to were God wants it to be.

  2. Welcome Bishop,
    We thank God for guiding us in the entire process, and the same God Almighty shall continue guiding us to the end. To the out going bishop Oginde, we have seen God use you to take CITAM to the next level and we grateful to God for this.

    We are having a great time in CITAM Buruburu with Ps. Jesee Mwai, may God bless him and entire family.


    1. This would be lack of maturity to ask such question,let Gods will be done.In CITAM,Church constitution lays down all the steps to choose the bishop,then followed by series of prayers by all CITAM churches and even in my spirit and heart,I am fine Gods leading and he deserves it.Baraka tele.

  3. I’m not sure why but this site is loading extremely slow for me.
