Maasai Outreach Mission

  • Evangelism and church planting
  • Education and leadership development

The Maasai, semi-nomads who graze huge herds of cattle and goats on the vast grasslands of Africa’s Great Rift Valley, need the good news of Jesus Christ presented in word and deed. The Maasai also need water, sustainable food sources, and, most urgently, a clinic and healthcare education. Pastor Simon Muntolol founded Maasai Outreach Mission (MOM) in 1984 with a holistic approach to mission paired with sustainable community development principles.

Pastor Simon trains evangelists who reach out to the Maasai with the gospel while still maintaining the Maasai culture. Today, MOM has more than tripled the number of churches among the Maasai. Since 2007, the Reformed Church in America has partnered with MOM. Together, we have led a church planting movement through digging wells, supporting education, training teachers, developing church leadership, and providing healthcare for underserved, remote Maasai communities. The most urgent need is developing a MOM clinic and community health mobilization and evangelism program. This program will provide quality, accessible healthcare and proactively strengthen community health education in Maasai communities.

Give to Maasai Motorbike - Kenya
MOM membership has increased considerably over the years from 39 churches with 4,000 members to over 130 churches with more than 15,000 members. The congregations struggle and sacrifice to support their pastors and evangelists. A team of approximately 15 pastors along with Bishop Simon Muntolol provide pastoral care to these congregations. They travel extremely long distances up to 60 miles miles by foot. Motorbikes will enable them to provide better oversight of their congregations. The congregations will cover the fuel, maintenance, riding equipment, licensing and registration of these vehicles.
