Bishop Stephen Njogu

NAME: Bishop Stephen Njogu
COURSE: Church and State
After being trained in August 2011 on Church and State course, I as the Bishop planned on how to deliver the same to my pastors in the diocese. I booked a hotel Hill Park in Karatina and invited them together with their spouses (wives). It was one of the best experiences to have couples sitting together and I doing the delivery on citizenship. The role of the church in leadership skills and how to curb corruption and on top of that on HIV/AIDS as the final topic. All this was done in bit because we did not have enough time to exhaust everything that I had been trained at Roswam in Kerugoya for almost a whole week and needed to be done in hours.
On leadership skills, we highlighted how to model our way as spouses and family. The way in which the community can learn from us. We shared briefly on personal empowerment which was very interesting on reading other books as leaders to have more knowledge and also trusting ourselves among the many. Teamwork was very vital. Apart from speaking Halleluyah only, we noticed that the church can energize its members and eradicate poverty by forming groups and exchange ideas and not waiting for a token from the mheshimiwa (Hon.) after a term of five years leading to corruption and having bad leaders. Many of them were tested voluntarily after the hit that they tell people (christians) to go for tests hence they don’t lead by example.
