Citam Brief History.
Citam Kisumu town church contacts, directions and location when around kisumu
Christ is the Answer Ministries (CITAM) history dates back to 1952 when John McBride a PAOC missionary arrived in Nairobi with the vision of establishing a church.
The first church services held in Rahimtulla Hall near Jevanjee Street. In September 1960, the Church moved to 28 Valley Road where the present NPC Valley Road is located. The first sanctuary built by Rev. Richard Bombay was dedicated to God in October 1960. At that time the church was known as Pentecostal Evangelistic Center (PEC).
The church was a small assembly of 20-30 members who were mainly white expatriates. And It was during the pastorate of Rev. Mervyn Thomas in 1970’s that the name of the church changed from Nairobi Evangelistic Center to Nairobi Pentecostal Church.
There was tremendous growth in 1980s during the pastorate of Rev. Roy Upton and Rev. Dennis White, who handed over the leadership of the church to Bishop Bonifes Adoyo, the first African leader. Bishop Adoyo led the church until 2010 as a result he retired and handed over leadership of the church to the current Presiding Bishop, Dr. David Oginde.
