Miss Kathy Walker

18Kathy Walker is an FPCNA missionary working in Kenya under the Free Presbyterian Church of Northern Ireland (FPCU).

Kathy sensed the Lord’s call to Kenya after she first visited the FPCU work in 2004 and learned that national believers needed training in “Christ-honoring” church music. Because of her gifts in music, and a burden from the Lord to serve there, she came to Kenya as a full-time missionary two years later.

Laboring with five missionaries from the FPCU, a sister denomination to the FPCNA, Kathy works with the already established Bible Christian Faith Church (BCFC), a denomination that separated from the African Inland Church in the early 80’s over fundamental doctrinal issues.

Kathy formed and regularly trains a number of choirs, and choir directors, in several BCFC churches. She also works in the 700 student BCFC Christian Academy teaching music theory and practice. The Academy has a primary recorder choir, a secondary chime choir, and both primary and secondary vocal choirs that hold concerts for students, parents and visitors from the local community.

The vocal choirs produced two CD’s— Spread the News in 2005 and Be Thou Exalted in 2009, now available on itunes.

Kathy also actively oversees a growing literature ministry with two bookshops, one in Kitale and another in Makutano, Kenya. The shops offer Reformed books and literature, Swahili and English (AV) Bibles, and a number of self published materials like a hymnal in the Pokot dialect, Swahili tracts, a Swahili catechism, and a daily devotional booklet in Swahili written by one of Kathy’s colleagues.
