Jesus Harvesters Ministries International (JHM) is the culmination of years of work for Bishop Steve Kabachia and his wife Jennifer. This ministry has evolved out of a passion for God and a burden for His people. Together with other Evangelists of like mind, Steve founded JHM, in Garrisa town of North Kenya in the early 1980's as a non-denominational evangelistic ministry.
In 1984, God challenged Steve to move from making converts, to making disciples. This came through a vision of an open basket from where the birds of the air ate the seeds. There was an urgency to cover the basket so as to contain the harvest. In 1985, with his newly wedded wife, Steve went to the United States of America, for further theological training, so as to know how to cover the basket. He was to learn that covering the basket meant planting of churches.
In 1987, JHM was incorporated as an Alabama non-profit organization to support the vision God gave Steve and Jennifer. Bishop Kabachia studied and received his BA in Theology from South Eastern Bible College in 1988. He continued his education and received a Masters of Education from the University of Montevallo in Birmingham, Alabama in 1989 and an MA in Missions from Birmingham Theological Seminary 1989. Dr. Kabachia obtained his Doctorate of Ministry in Missions at Trinity International University in Chicago, Illinois in 1992.
The Kabachia's then went back to Kenya, and planted AGAPE Bible Church, in the heart of Nairobi. The ministry is mainly evangelistic and church planting, targeting the unreached and the un-churched in East Africa. They have churches now, scattered all over Kenya, and they have started to enter the other countries of East Africa, like Uganda, Tanzania, and Rwanda.
