Marta chairs the Department of Leadership Studies at the Nairobi International School of Theology/International Leadership University (NIST/ILU-Kenya). Marta trains Christian leaders for service in churches, parachurch organizations, business, and government, integrating leadership with discipleship and mentoring. Students come to NIST/ILU from all over Africa to study at the certificate, diploma, undergraduate, master’s, and soon the doctoral levels. “While evangelism continues to be crucial,” she says, “even more strategic is discipleship and professional skill development so that the gospel can take root, transforming lives and society as a whole.” Marta is the mother of two adopted children and a foster son, all Kenyan.
