Ukunda Mission School was founded in 2013. Vaughn Martin, received the vision for UMS when he was a teenager on a missions trip at the coast of Kenya in 1989. The Lord spoke about a missions movement that would arise out of Kenya, and a school that would help train the Kenyan missionaries. Today this vision is being fulfilled, as many African missionaries are being trained and sent into unreached communities with the gospel of Jesus Christ.

She experienced God strongly in the mission field and during the worship at UMS. Angel glorifies God that she can walk by faith now as a missionary.
Greetings! My name is Aryan. I grew up as a Muslim, and I became an Islamic teacher and leader. My parents were Muslims but were also traditionalist witch doctors. I did not feel much spiritual guidance from them. So I turned for guidance to Islam.
Hello there! My Name is Benjamin, and I joined Ukunda Mission School in 2014 when I began my training. Afterward, I was sent to serve at the Ukunda Base. Although I have been a missionary for the last five years, it was not an easy path for a family man like myself, who is supposed to uphold the role of family breadwinner as a husband and the father of three sons.
I am Robert Chepkwony and am currently serving God in Witu, standing in for Katana, who is in Paraguay. For the last six years that I have been in the mission field, I have learned the importance of trusting God. I have continued to trust Him more and more because I have seen Him save, heal, lift, and transform the lives of others.
In the few months I have been here in the school, I have been challenged in my leadership capacity, and I thank God for this, as it has helped me build my skill set. I know God is doing this for His Glory. My focus is on Somalia and Arab nations to see that they know the saving power of God.
Robert, missionary at Ukunda Missions School
I joined UMS for the 2018-2019 class. After the training, I went into the mission field, where I have been working with the Digo community. Our breakthrough came when we continued to expose the community to prayer. We held door-to-door sessions and DBS where God confirmed He was with us through the testimonies we experienced in the field.
Esther, missionary at Ukunda Missions School
I have witnessed great testimonies, and I can share two people in particular who were paralyzed. After prayers, they started walking. I have witnessed others delivered from evil spirits, which solidifies my appreciation to God for the grace He has given me and for allowing me to make a difference.
Benjamin, missionary at Ukunda Missions School
My life was utterly transformed at TMS. Teachers came from numerous countries with great teachings, such as the tribune of God, spiritual warfare, Holy Spirit filling, knowing your calling, and much more. This experience has given me the boldness to serve Christ and has also made me understand the profound power of God's saving grace.
Francis, missionary at Tanga Missions School
My faith grew through my training at UMS. While training in the school, I received my calling to take the Gospel to my Muslim people. My heart is to reach many people. I especially want to reach the Islamic leaders, because I was once an Islamic leader, and I know how they think and how much they need the Gospel.
Aryan, missionary at Ukunda Missions School
During my time in the school, my life was entirely changed by the morning prayers and worship sessions led by Pastor Katana and various other teachers. My love for Christ was significantly increased, and I was able to allow ambitions about my life to die and the will of God to prevail.
Martin, missionary at Ukunda Missions School
The UMS training was everything I had hoped for. After my graduation, I was sent to Kilifi, a Muslim-dominated area. I thank God for equipping me with such vast knowledge since the region represented a significant challenge. God helped me to establish DBS with several families, opened the doors in local churches, and to reach out to the Muslim community.
Allan, missionary at Ukunda Missions School
We experienced a powerful time in the presence of God during Altar Week. The Lord spoke to each student about different aspects of their lives which He wanted to transform. Our students eagerly listened to where God would take them in the coming years, and what their ministry would be like.
