Archbishop, Professor, Rev. Dr. James M Mbuva, BTH, MA, PhD. Founding President & CEO
The Archbishop, Rev. Dr. James Mbuva is a born again servant of the Lord Jesus Christ of whom God has used as a Sunday school teacher, a trainer, an elder, a pastor-teacher, and a preacher of the transforming word of God since 1967. He has seen the faithfulness of God in all the ways of his life and has learned to trust and to depend on God for everything. He has ministered in local churches as senior pastor, a Bible College teacher, dean of students, pastoral internship supervisors, and principal, a mentor of all ages, an encourager of the ministers and the teachers of God’s word, and a professor of higher education. God has been impressing in Dr. Mbuva’s heart the need to train pastors, men, and women, who are interested in being ministers of God’s word at home and abroad.
As early as October 2, 2017, the Lord put in the heart of Rev. Dr. James Mbuva to work on creating Grace Leadership College to train men and women in the leadership of church ministries. It was this day that the Lord said, “write the pastoral training curriculum,” and in obedience, Dr. Mbuva wrote it.
Dr. Mbuva is a husband, a father of four children (John, Rachael, Joe, and Rebecca) and a grandpa of six grandchildren (Joshua, Silas, Isaiah, Caleb, Kobe, and Cecilia). He loves God and is sold out to serving God as a pastor-teacher, apostle, prophet, encourager, and a mentor to pastors and all generations in the church of Jesus Christ.
God has revealed to Dr. Mbuva that the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ must be taught and preached, and with the increase of tuition, emergent newer generation desiring to service the Lord God alone, complacency, lack of emphasis on the word of God and the centrality of Christ in the ministry of church in our time it was time to establish an alternative bible training institution to prepare men and women who are called and are already involved in church ministry in all capacities.
Indeed, this revelation marked the beginning of Grace Leadership College, and we are grateful to our Lord Jesus Christ, for establishing GLC to fulfill his Great Commission by: going, witnessing to people and alerting people of the saving grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, discipling them, teaching them, and baptizing them in the name of God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19-20).
Dr. Mbuva brings to GLC tested visionary leadership, in-depth diverse teaching skills, Bible Centered preaching and teaching, Biblical theology, evangelism and cross-cultural missions, counseling, mentorship, and encouraging spirit. Dr. Mbuva seeks to inspire, and empower young women and men to turn the world upside-down and transform the millennials with the saving and powerful message of the Word God.
