INTERNATIONAL OUTREACH CENTER
“And Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and disease among the people.”
“And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.”
Through the years World Christian Outreach has been reaching out with the compassion and love of Jesus Christ to help the people of God in East Africa. Now the time has come to establish a Center where African Pastors and Leaders can come to us to receive encouragement and an Outreach Vision for the world. We want to pour out our life into the lives of God’s servants, help them come closer to Jesus, and then go forth in His name.
In the past 13 years relationships have been developed with about 4,000 Pastors in East Africa. We now want to bring in these Leaders and Pastors for intimate communion and blessed fellowship with Jesus Christ and have them come together in fellowship and unity with each other. We believe there is tremendous power and spiritual strength generated when God’s people come together in agreement, love one another, pray together in The Holy Spirit, and receive encouraging, inspiring, and healing messages from the Bible.
2 Chronicles 16:9 says – “For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to shew himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him.” We believe the INTERNATIONAL OUTREACH CENTER will become a place where The Lord Jesus Christ is going to manifest Himself with fire, power, and glory in a mighty way to impact the world through African Christians. You can be a pioneer with us in this great venture!
“Thine, O Lord, is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty: for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is thine; thine is the kingdom, O Lord, and thou art exalted as head above all.”
1 Chronicles 29:11

PROSPECTUS AND VISION
LAND and LOCATION: The International Outreach Center will be located in central Kenya approximately 15 miles east of the city of Nakuru and central to our main ministry contacts. Twenty acres of land has been donated specifically for this project. The property is located close to a major east-west highway and is close to water and electricity.
MINISTRY PLANS: A topological survey and architectural plans have been drawn for the First Phase of developing a Ministry Guest House. This is central to the project since the founders of the ministry, Stan and Damaris Herpick, will spend up to six months of the year at this location as a central base for Outreach.
VISION: African Pastors and Leaders will be brought to the Guest House for introductory meetings to catch the Outreach Vision. We will then go to the Lead Pastors church for a week-long Regional Conference of teaching, preaching, prayer, and healing. This model will be duplicated throughout the country. Philippians 1:27 says – “Only let your conversation be as it becometh the gospel of Christ: that whether I come and see you, or else be absent, I may hear of your affairs, that ye stand fast in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel.” Then the self-emptying of Jesus described in Philippians 2:1-7 will be the key note of our pursuit. The objective will be to cast our all upon Jesus, submitting and surrendering to him afresh; as centering upon Jesus will dominate the activities. We will consciously esteem others better than ourselves as we affirm our status of humility and servant-hood. We will end in a time of one accord as we pray for the nations of the world; pray for one another and our families; and pray for an outpouring of the Holy Spirit upon the earth.
“If there be therefore any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any bowels and mercies, Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind. Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves. Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others. Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus. Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men.”
