Church History


Global Light Ministry (GLM) is the umbrella organization that runs Global Light Church. The Ministry has its headquarters in Nairobi, Kenya where it is registered as a Society.

The vision of Global Light ministry was birthed in the year 2005 by the man of God, Pastor Judah Kalinga. It started as a leadership training for young, vibrant and energetic campus students who would meet every Sunday afternoon to be taught in the word. Gradually the numbers grew, and on the 5th March 2006 the first Sunday morning worship service was held at the YMCA Central in Nairobi.

15 years later, GLM has grown to about 2000 members and 14 chapters across Kenya – Machakos, Ongata Rongai, Nakuru, Eldoret, Thika, Westlands, Kitengela, Buruburu, Ngong, Mombasa, Wote, Kasarani, Utawala and Nyeri. It also has several cells outside Kenya and is expanding daily by God’s grace. The Ministry is intentional in impacting the lives of its various classes of members. The vibrant campus ministry, Love Republic is GLM’s arm to reach the young adults in universities, colleges and other tertiary institutions. For teenagers there’s World changers while the children are served through the GLM Superkids ministry.

As a ministry we are delighted to be at the core of God’s agenda of winning the world to himself hence our activities are focused to soul winning and discipleship. Ministry-wide programs like the annual Day of Bliss and Total Experience crusades in various locations and are focused on soulwinning. Individual chapters frequently hold Springs of life, Super Sunday and Night of Promotion services all geared towards outreach. Cells and Pastoral Care Fellowships (PCFs) ensure every member is part of a smaller team where they can be ministered to personally. We thank God that in this way we have been able to stay focused on our mandate of reaching to every man’s world with the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.


Global Light Ministry is a key partner in the International School of Ministry Ministers Network (ISMMN) which is an arm of the Christ Embassy church. The rigorous trainings offered at the ISM have equipped GLM pastors and leaders for effective ministry. The Ministry is grateful for this partnership and keen to introduce other ministers into the Network.
