Pastor Fredrick Makhanu Wafula is a Kenyan, born 1973, in Bungoma County in Mayanja village. I attended Mayanja primary School and then successfully joined Kabula High School. I studied General Agriculture in Masinde Muliro University. Later I joined bible school and studied Pastoral Ministry and Church planting , and project development with Faith Leaders International Ministries. I attained knowledge in Child psychology and Counselling with Catechist of Good Shephard. Iam married, blessed with 6 beloved children; 3 boys and 3 girls and adopted 14 children who are orphans.

I have worked with my community for a period of 17 years and have planted 25 churches in different regions, 15 within Bungoma County and others are spread throughout Kenya. In this capacity , I have 1 orphanage which is located in Mayanja, Kibuke location, Bumula Sub-county, The orphanage has a total of 220 children’s who are under home based care program. This is the program which is run from homes of different church members and pastors who are supporting this children on their low income which sometimes make them go empty stomach.

Currently iam the Senior Pastor of The Hope Movement Missions in Kenya. In March of the year 1999, while in long season prayer and fasting, the Lord put a burden on my heart concerning preaching His word to the lost, reaching out to raise the standards of the poor, and to bring hope to the hopeless and homeless. This word was from the book of James 1:27; this word never gave me peace nor rest until when i sought the Lord on how He specifically wanted me to fulfil His assignment, that is when He gave me the direction to launch the Ministry of the Hope Movement. We focus on preaching Christ Jesus the Hope for the hopeless, we allow Him by His power to destroy yokes, bondages, minister deliverance to the oppressed hearts, and give wise counsel to God’s children because He is the Wise Counsellor. In all our meetings we have witnessed miracles, signs and wonders as God stepped in to confirm and vindicate His word and set captives free.

Owing to the need to raise effective churches, competent ministers, and the urge to realize vision to reality, God led us to start leadership discipleship classes to train and equip the new converts in spiritual life and Ministry. We started the slogan “turning members to ministers”. So this one has grown radically over the years and in 2014, it translated to a Bible College that is even training pastors from neighboring churches from the community. By God’s grace and enablement Faith Community Bible School was launched in 2014.

Our vision and commission allows us to network, team up with all other bodies, individuals and churches in advancing the Gospel and touching lives both spiritually and in physical needs. We welcome all parties that are interested in working with us to accomplish our desired goals.
