KOI was founded by missionary Pastor Emanuel Azan of Clarksville, TN, a native Jamaican. Pastor Azan is a former Muslim who accepted Christ in 1997. His missions outreach has touched the nations of Guatemala, Honduras and now his birth place, Jamaica. Since 2011, KOI has fed those who are shut-in and less fortunate, handed out school supplies and Christmas gifts to children and the elderly. They also build bathrooms for elderly people who still use outhouses. While on the mission field, he mentors young men and sponsers football (soccer in the US) games. It goes without saying that the love of God is expressed by this ministry, and the Gospel is shared through giving out Bibles and ministry.
Pastor Azan attends Faith Outreach Church where he serves faithfully. When he is not there, he operates his own business, Merba’s Gallery, which specializes in military and religious prints and custom framing. The money from the gallery helps to finance mission trips.
