Staff Team, Nairobi Chapel, Ongata Rongai

Pastor Ondachi, Lead Pastor Nairobi Chapel Ongata Rongai

Pastor Edward Ondachi

Lead Pastor

My Lead Pastors role at NCOR are chiefly rooted in being the vision bearer and spiritual leader of the Church. I ensure that the staff team, followed by our volunteers and then the congregation is nourished, equipped and enabled to propagate and actualize Gods word into lives and practice. As the leader I am an automatic member of every department that we run .I ensure that our budget is commensurate with our vision. it is my duty to inspire , grow and care for NCOR as if it were my own child. My Job is the single most wonderful thing I do.Ironically it is also my greatest burden.It gives me tremendous joy as much as it gives me sleepless nights! In many ways there is no differentiating personal and official work for me. This, they say, is the package that comes with duty. It suits me just fine since I am generally a fairly informal person. I enjoy to see people grow spiritually as well as in all other areas of their lives. To pray for families or introduce an individual to the loving Grace of God is something one cannot put together in words.To have the privilege to wed a couple , dedicate their child and bury their aging parent is a privilege beyond compare.To be able to guide others and train them to do that with you as a lead minister is simply profound. I love and honor Jesus for according me this favor , in spite of myself. My leading scripture for ministry is Hebrews 5:1-4

IMG-20150710-WA0000“For every high priest chosen from among men is appointed to act on behalf of men in relation to God, to offer gifts and sacrifices for sins. He can deal gently with the ignorant and wayward, since he himself is beset with weakness. Because of this he is obligated to offer sacrifice for his own sins just as he does for those of the people. And no one takes this honor for himself, but only when called by God, just as Aaron was”


Pastor Toni Ngugi Mungai

Executive Pastor
E-mail Pastor Toni Ngugi Mungai

Pastor Toni Ngugi Mungai came to Nairobi Chapel from Mavuno Church where he was a staff team member from 2008. He has served in various capacities in both churches and his ministry involvement includes Small Groups Ministry, Mizizi and Plug In, and in the Parenting & Marriage ministry where he has served with his wife Edith Ngugi. They have been married for 16 years and  blessed with 3 children, Jabu (14yrs), Neema (11 yrs) and Sifa (8yrs).

An ardent digital photographer, Pastor Toni’s other hobbies include listening to contemporary jazz, and travelling to experience different cultures across the continent of Africa. You will also catch him behind the wheel of fast German cars as he loves the thrill of speed driving. Having a passion for things design, Pastor Toni owned and  ran a design and print media consulting firm for 7 years just before he joined full time ministry. He is currently a B.Sc Leadership student at the International Leadership University.

“ I got saved in high school and it was not until when I was in my late teens and early twenties that a man whom I deeply respect and who later became a mentor of mine took me through a season of mentorship. That is the reason why I love to walk with, speak to and inspire those younger than me or who are struggling to make sense of their faith because someone did that for me and it changed my life course completely.”

Convinced that this is where the Lord has called him and his family to be at in this season of his life, Pst Toni is excited to be serving in the Discipleship ministries here at NCOR and is responsible for PLUG InE-GroupsJozi and Man Enough. His role models in the ministry include Pastor Muriithi Wanjau, Pst Edward Ondachi, Pst Oscar Muriu and Bishop TD Jakes. Pst Toni’s life has also been greatly influenced by the life and teachings of Pastor Myles Munroe and leadership guru, John Maxwell..

Some of the things that really tick off Pastor Toni apart from bad customer service are people who throw trash from their moving vehicles or people who speak loudly on their cellphone…why now? Why? All the same he is excited at the thought of raising strong healthy ministry teams and building capacity for the ministries of Nairobi Chapel Ongata Rongai. Now that is exciting!

Ohhh, and Pastor Toni is a sanguine (shock, shock)

I am passionate about music and the youths.  My vision is to have a generation of young men and women that are transformed by their knowledge of God, especially at the informal settlements (slum areas) where social vices (drug abuse, crime, etc) are so rampant. Being in full time ministry is a platform for me to not only put my passion and gifting into service but also to notice and engage others in service for the Kingdom of God.
