Esther Kangethe – Kenya

Area Director

Esther met Jesus as a girl when missionaries came to her school to share the gospel. After high school, Esther volunteered at an orphanage, and one day, she met George who told her about Young Life. After hearing about the mission, she knew she wanted to get involved and became a volunteer leader. She grew deeper in her relationship with God by putting her faith into action and walking in fellowship alongside other believers. Esther began leading in Ruiru, but was offered a job in Murang’a, a town two hours away. She constantly drove the two hours to keep meeting with kids. When the senior leaders realized, they encouraged her to start her own ministry in Murang’a. She gladly accepted, and she recruited and trained other leaders to come alongside her. Esther still serves as area director of Murang’a, Kenya today.
