CTM is a Christian organization whose foundation is built upon the mission of Christ in Luke 4: 18-19, and thus the organization exists to proclaim and demonstrate the good news of the gospel of Jesus Christ through action, reflection, and discernment.

In her efforts to walk with the marginalized communities CTM Kenya recognizes that the most powerful and renewable resource in high-risk communities resides within the communities themselves. This includes relationships between and among individual community members as well as relationships and institutions that sustain the life of the community. Thus the critical need is to recognize, network, and train indigenous leaders to activate these resources in a way that is beneficial and sustainable.

“Raising a new generation of leaders who are excellent: educationally, technically, vocationally, and morally”

The Center for Transforming Mission is accredited as a Local Leadership Foundation also known as The Nairobi Leadership Foundation
