Bishop Charles Muyu, Founder
Charles Muyu has a tremendous passion for God’s word, coupled with a love for God’s people. He is gifted by the Holy Spirit in the area of evangelism, teaching, preaching, healings and deliverance. His vision is uncompromisingly clear, with one central principle: to build, develop and advance the kingdom of God. Bishop Muyu has traveled throughout Europe, Africa, North America, the Middle East and Asia, proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Charles Muyu was born in Ukambani, in the eastern landscapes of Kenya, and grew up in the same humble area. He is a second-generation minister and the youngest of eight children born to the late Mzee Paul Muyu.
Mzee Paul Muyu was a farmer and preacher, who pioneered and embraced Christianity and western civilization in the late 1800s. He was the first person in his native area to put on western clothes, a trouser, a shirt, own a lantern, and become involved in the spreading the gospel in his native tongue. By the time of his death in 1993, he had lived to a very old age and left a church named in his honor. Both his sons, Gibson and Charles, are ordained ministers. Several of his grandchildren and great-grandchildren are involved in serving the Lord.
Charles Muyu was born again while in Uganda. A deep desire and longing for God led him to a searching of the truth, and later he heard the full Gospel message preached by a Canadian Missionary. He was gloriously transformed by the Holy Spirit baptism, and soon resigned from his office job for full time ministry. He headed for the kingdom of Toro in Western Uganda, where he pioneered and established churches. By the time he left for Biblical studies in England, Charles was the youngest District Overseer of Elim Missionary Assemblies in East and central Africa.
Charles began his primary education at Wathini, a Christian school, and continued at the government school at Kasikeu. His high school education was at an Indian High School in Mombasa, and later at St. Bernard’s in Masaka, Uganda.
Charles Muyu joined International Bible Training Institute in Sussex, England. After graduation, he served the Lord in a full Gospel church in Islington, London. From there, he enrolled in Central Bible College in Springfield Missouri, USA, and received a B.A. in Biblical studies.
Charles Muyu is married to Akiiki Muyu, a graduate of Makerere University in Uganda, Christ for the Nations Bible Institute, and Oral Roberts University in Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA. Together, they serve the Lord in the ministry.
The Muyu’s are the proud parents of eight blessed children – three daughters and five sons. Several of their children have continued the family tradition and are serving in the ministry.

Gospel Tabernacle Churches of Kenya
In 1977, while Charles Muyu was preparing for a crusade in Orlando, Florida, God spoke to him to evangelize his native country of Kenya. A year later, in Obedience to the Lord’s voice, he undertook the journey.
North American-based Charles Muyu Ministries provided a tent, a vehicle and equipment for the mission work in Kenya. In 1979, Brother Muyu held his first tent crusade at Kamukunji ground in Nairobi City. The harvest was overwhelming. Hundreds of people gave their lives to Christ. The power of God healed many and delivered many. Teaching and consolidating the new believers led to the establishment of Nairobi Gospel Tabernacle, a church that served as a spiritual beacon in the City of Nairobi.
Today, Gospel Tabernacle Churches of Kenya has expanded and grown in the East Africa lake region, with branches in the nations of Uganda, Tanzania, and Congo. It is also affiliated with other ministries. Indigenous churches are established with committees that plan for national or regional conferences, seminars and annual convention at the headquarters. Each individual district has a District Overseer. It plans for its own projects, settles any problem which may arise, and is involved in the great commissions of reaching the lost with the good news and making disciples for Jesus Christ. The districts report to the General Overseer, who is a member of the Executive Committee. Charles Muyu chairs the Executive Committee, and is the presiding Bishop, founder and overall head of the ministry.
Ministry Growth Plans are underway to register independent Gospel Tabernacle Churches of Uganda, Tanzania and Congo, which are currently working under the leadership in Kenya. All these ministries serve God by faith, trusting Him to reach their needs.
