The church business is very lucrative here in Kenya and if you have a huge following especially if they are mostly made up of the middle class folks and above, the amount a church collects can be humongous. Its not a secret that some of the most famous pastors ride in the most expensive machines thanks to just income from spreading the word of God.
Some churches do disclose how much amount they collect and make the details public. They also show how the money was spent. Here are some of the churches making the most money in Kenya according to their 2015 income figures.
1.CITAM (Christ Is The Answer Ministries)
The brand has over 15 branches of churches all over the country plus they own the famous gospel station, Hope FM. They also have 5 different schools under their brand.
Tithe and offering:Ksh946 million, a huge jump from 2014’s Ksh798m
Total income: Ksh1.016 billion
2. Nairobi Chapel
Nairobi Chapel got a total income of Ksh440 million and just Ksh212.68m was from Tithes and Offerings.
3. All Saints Cathedral
This is a very popular church and it made around Ksh171.6 million from Offerings and Tithe. Its total income stood at Ksh191 million.
4. Mavuno Church

5. Nairobi Baptist Church
