About Kuza

Digital discipleship materials for youth.

Kuza is an app that will help you grow in your personal relationship with God on a daily basis through short devotions.

Everything is written by East Africans in an East African context for East African youth. You will find subjects and topics that relate to challenges that you face and get great Biblical answers to face them in a godly way. Kuza karibu Yesu! There are many devotions that you’re able to read. Some are on issues that youth struggle with such as sexual immorality. Others on books of the Bible like Daniel. We even have other topics like the Jesus devotional which helps you learn about who Jesus is and what he asks of believers. Other devotions that will be coming out soon deal with topics and books of the Bible.

Our mission is to develop digital discipleship materials for youth.

Our vision is to create a movement of disciples representing Christ.

Why we developed Kuza

Our goal for the teaching side of our ministry is to equip churches to reach youth for Christ.

Training pastors in conferences and seminaries have been successful in starting youth ministry in many churches. However, we received feedback from many pastors that they felt they needed help in maintaining their youth ministry’s spiritual growth.

We thought that a smartphone app, along with other digital resources was the easiest, quickest, and cheapest means of distribution. To respond to the needs, we developed a team of local Africans to produce content for digital platforms for youth and young adults in an African context. We chose the name “Kuza” because it means “to be nurtured” or “to grow” in Swahili.

Kuza writing team

Kuza’s content development team is made up of youth pastors and people in youth ministry from gospel preaching churches with the heart of helping youth grow spiritually.

Kuza desires to create content that is in an African context. Lots of content for youth and youth ministry come from the west, but they are not entirely relevant for local needs. Kuza desires to change that.

We have a strong passion for seeing youth grow in their salvation not just on Sunday but through a daily relationship with Christ


The digital content that is developed by Kuza is decided based on a group consensus. The Kuza team meets weekly to discuss what they’re seeing in the church, society, and learning from God through the Word. Based on those three factors, Kuza will prayerfully decide what to write and develop.

Whole books & topics

Another important thing is that we believe in developing content based on entire books of the Bible and essential topics.

We believe we must have content on whole books of the Bible because we don’t want to create a mindset that there are important and unimportant things in the Bible. We believe that the entire Bible matters not just pieces and parts.

We are also convinced that topics are important because some things need to be pressed. No matter what you find in Kuza, our goal is to be as biblical and relevant as possible, and the importance is placed in that order
