The vision was born when two missionaries and a native Kenyan got together and envisaged to begin a radio ministry in Kenya and by extension the East African region. 

These three men are Scott Beigle who was already operating a Christian radio station in the Tallahassee area, John Cappelen, Scott’s brother in law who is a Pastor of Quest Church in Temecula, California. The native African is Ptallah Butaki who was entrusted with the task of spearheading the project of seeing the vision come to fruition.

It was the first Christian Radio station in Western Kenya and the first radio signal to reach the pastoral community of Pokot. Within the first few weeks of broadcasting, we were bombarded with numerous congratulatory messages from the body of Christ in and around the Kitale area.


Most people were so excited that God had brought an instrument of spiritual nourishment and particularly ministering to those whose souls were tormented by the enemy and setting them free through his word. Imani Radio and TV Ministries cover an approximate potential of 7 million listeners in Kenya and Eastern Uganda while about 2 million of these are tuned in to our broadcasts at any given time.

With her radio covering the towns and regions in the North Rift, Western Kenya, Parts of Nyanza and Eastern Uganda. The new frequency in Kapchorwa covers a bigger part of Eastern and Northern parts of Uganda. The Kapchorwa based Imani radio covers eight key regions in eastern Uganda to include, Bugisu, Busoga, Sebei, Teso, Lango, Mbale, Iganga, Soroti, Karamoja, e.t.c. Imani Radio was started in Kitale town in the year 2005 and was initially given shelter at International Christian Ministries before we got our own land which we constructed and moved in the later part of 2008.
