The Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada started missionary outreach ministries in East Africa after the beginning of the 20th Century. In Kenya, their evangelistic work begun in the Western region and as many people were won to Christ, the African leaders and pastors begun to make appeals for a printing press where they could print portions of the Bible, song books, tracts, Sunday school materials and other literature to meet the spiritual needs of their fast growing congregations. So, in 1952, after two years of fundraising, Evangel Press was born. It was housed in an old renovated school building in Kisumu. The name Evangel was derived from a Greek word meaning ‘Proclamation of the Gospel’
