EABST is a church-based institution that partners with like-minded churches and their leadership for the purpose of training the next generation of under-shepherds for the church of Jesus Christ. Together, we seek to develop well-trained, servant-minded men who preach the gospel to all peoples and exalt the name and good news of Jesus Christ. EABST is based at Emmanuel Baptist Church, Kingara Road, Lavington on the west side of Nairobi.

Jonathan Moore and Jeremy Pittsley join Dan in teaching at EABST. Dan, Jonathan, and Jeremy hold advanced theological degrees and years of local church experience. They are burdened to bring quality, biblical, church-based theological education to the churches of Kenya.
Daniel Huffstutler, B.A., M.A., M.Div., Th.M.
Dan was reared by godly parents who were intimately involved in their local church. Through his parents’ example and faithful Bible preaching, he was confronted with his need for repentance from sin and faith in Jesus Christ. After college while being very involved in a bible-believing church, Dan believed the Lord was leading him into further study of the Scriptures. After his theological training, Dan was blessed with Angela as his wife in 2000. Shortly thereafter, Dan and Angie spent 2002 falling in love with Kenya while serving as missionaries in Nairobi. After returning to the US to serve in a local church and continue more theological training, Dan and Angie believed God was leading their family of five back to Kenya to help Kenyan church leaders acquire advanced theological training and assist Kenyan churches as they plant new churches.
Jeremy Pittsley, B.A., M.Div, Th.M.
As a child, Jeremy began to follow Christ through a teenager’s witness at a children’s outreach in 1985. Through his parents’ hard work, he grew up in constant contact with the Word and began to pursue missions in 1997. After receiving training and experience in local church and campus ministries, his family relocated to Kenya. The Pittsleys love serving here and representing their sending church’s strategic focus on ministry training in East Africa through EABST. Jeremy married Jenny in 2002; they have three children. For fun, they enjoy imaginative fiction in many forms.
Jonathan Moore, B.S., M.Div
Jonathan grew up in a godly home in the suburbs of Detroit and seemed destined to work in Detroit’s auto industry. As a university student studying Electrical Engineering, the Lord began stirring his heart to consider working overseas. After graduation he had the opportunity to spend nearly 3 months in Tanzania and developed a burden for the people of East Africa. Returning to the USA he worked in the auto sector for nearly 9 years while starting a family and attending seminary. During that time he served at First Baptist Church of Lake Orion, Michigan in various leadership roles, where his gifts were recognized, and he was then commissioned by First Baptist in 2013 to serve in Kenya at EABST. Jonathan is blessed with his wonderful wife, Janet, and 3 children. He is currently privileged to be help train the next generation of Kenyan leaders at East Africa Baptist School of Theology.
