Dr. Shaaban Brima Abdhallah
Pastor-Elect & Chairman
Dr. Shaaban Brima Abdhallah, honorably known as, “Mwalimu Shaaban” (Teacher Shaaban), has been called, predestined, and chosen by God to break cycles and impart the fundamentals of power in the life of a Believer of Jesus Christ. As an anointed, prophetic teacher, he allows the Holy Spirit to unveil the mysteries of the word of God to heal, set free, and deliver souls, making educated and empowered witnesses of Jesus Christ.
Born as the third eldest in a family of six to a peasant Islamic family in the countryside of the Western region of Kenya, he was raised under strict Islamic values. He faithfully attended madras (Islamic foundational classes) in his village mosque, grooming him to become a scholar and propagator of Islam. Due to his zeal for the Islamic faith, Dr. Shaaban rose through the ranks to become the imam (prayer leader) of a mosque in Keroka, a small hometown about thirty miles from his village of birth in 1998. In the year 2000, while performing his religious duties in Keroka he encountered Jesus Christ as he participated in debates and dialogues with the local pastor and Christian brothers. He received the grace of salvation and joined Gospel Outreach Ministries under the care of Pastor Henry Nyabuto Isaboke and was soon baptized. Due to his passion for people understanding the word of God, he was ordained into the office of the ministry of translation in the church.
Persecution from the Muslim community arose in 2001 causing him to flee for safety in Nairobi where he joined Deliverance Church under Rev. Bill William Kithinji, serving in various leadership positions until 2013. In 2015 he was ordained into the office of a Pastor in Nairobi, Kenya with a diploma from Pan Africa Christian University (PAC) in Transformational Church Leadership. Among his noted commendations, he was awarded an honorary Ph.D. in Divinity from Breakthrough International Bible University. In 2021 he received his Bachelor of Arts in Theology from Heart Bible International University (HBIU-USA). He is currently pursuing a Master of Arts in Divinity with a major in Christian Ministry and Chaplaincy at HBIU.
Dr. Shaaban met and fell in love with Carolyn Malenya and the two were married in holy matrimony on the 29th of November 2003 and are blessed with 3 children. With his wife by his side, she joined his church, Deliverance Church (Solid Rock Worship Center), where they served faithfully for 12 years in music, word exposition, and interpretation under Rev. William Bill Kithinji. Eventually, he moved to Utawala in Embakasi Kenya, where as a family they helped a dying church to arise to the glory of God, through music and the Word of God. The call to full-time ministry became clearly evident when they were commissioned to pastoral ministry under the House of Glory Blessed Church in 2014, which he served faithfully for seven years under Bishop Moses Gitari. Presently, he is serving as Pastor-Elect of the Storehouse of Living Sacrifice Outreach Ministries (#LSOM) – Kenya.
As a teacher, Dr. Shaaban has reached many through radio station programs, TV interviews, and online streaming of sermons and apologetics topics. His most notable radio station programs are: “Yesu Ndiye Njia” (Jesus is the Way) on 93.3 Hope FM and “Sauti Kutoka Nyikani” (Voice from the Wilderness), which he founded, on Wapo Radio 98.1 FM in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. His tenure as host of Hope TV Kenya’s “Mshawishi” program afforded him the opportunity to share in diverse guest testimonies while highlighting the power of God, a renewed mind, and righteous living. Many unbelievers and Muslims have received Christ as Lord and Savior as a result of his commitment to and involvement with evangelism through these various platforms. His vision is to carry out his apostolic assignment through teaching and rightfully dividing God's word, mentorship, church planting and the empowerment of church workers in the African region.
Dr. Shaaban Brima Abdhallah is a faithful believer who follows the Lord Jesus Christ, a passionate Bible teacher, and a missionary to the unreached communities in Kenya and Africa, at large. He is a humble servant of God with great expectations of Christ’s awakening and revival of His church in this generation.
Pastor Carolyn Kisia Brima is a woman deeply in love with serving God through the sound doctrine of His word and worship in music. Her passion for prophetic intercession, deliverance and evangelism drives her to declare the word of the Lord and see all souls reconciled to Christ Jesus.
Raised in a Christian background, she is the second eldest of four siblings. In 1996, after accepting the invitation to follow Christ from Rev. Simon Alovi, Pastor Carolyn gave her life to Christ and was baptized by water in June of 1997 through the Pentecostal Assemblies of God (PAG). From an early age, she developed a zeal for the work of God, and as a teenager, she was appointed as a Sunday school teacher; igniting her passion for instilling the fundamental principles of Christianity that burn strong to this day.
As a young girl, Pastor Carolyn sang in various churches and choirs, helping them to win trophies throughout. However, her gift and skill in music flourished during her school-age experience, where as a soloist and choral member, she led her team to national levels in Kenya and helped win many trophies. Her notoriety brought favorable recognition to her school and contributed to increased enrollment, making her a symbol of musical success. While serving in PAG as a youth, she passionately led prophetic worship, which saw believers delivered and healed. Along with her father, from 1999 to 2002, she served in an evangelistic outreach ministry, allowing her to travel across Kenya. As she continued to grow, she was entrusted to lead Bible studies where her gifts and anointing became more evident, resulting in many addressing her as a prophetic pastor in the making.
