Profiles

REVEREND CANON PETER KARANJA’S PROFILE

Reverend Canon Peter Karanja Mwangi is an accomplished clergy man of the Anglican Church of Kenya (ACK). With a career spanning close to three decades, the father of three rose to the helm of the National Council of Churches of Kenya (NCCK) in October 2007 following a competitive recruitment process by the Council’s Executive Committee.  The University of Nairobi graduate who took over from his predecessor Reverend Hon. Mutava Musyimi, is currently serving his second 6-year term in office. As an astute leader, Canon Karanja is remembered for steering the Council through the murky post election violence following the 2007 general election. 

In collaboration with other like-minded leaders, Canon Karanja, who was later appointed a goodwill peace ambassador by the National Cohesion and Integration Commission (NCIC), was instrumental in the peace building mission in the Country that helped to promote peace in the nation especially in the 2010 referendum period and the lead up to the last general election. With his demonstrated ingenuity, Canon Karanja has boldly engaged community and ethnic leadership in hotspot areas and amongst highly antagonistic constituencies arguing that it is in their own self-interest to foster peace.
 
So far Canon Karanja has revolutionized the Council and activated her grassroot engagement in the Country. Capacity Building for Membership and Governance and Social Services are among the key areas that the Council has intensified its engagement. 

As a man of no mean repute, Canon Karanja cut his teeth in leadership at Church Army Africa where he was General Secretary for five years before taking over as the Provost of the All Saints Cathedral where he served from 2003 to 2007. The impact of his ministry at All Saints Cathedral reflected in positive change in all counts is still being felt long after his transition to the Council.

Canon Karanja was made a deacon of the Anglican Church in 1993, before his ordination as a priest in 1994. He holds a Master of Divinity (M.Div) from Nairobi Evangelical Graduate School of Theology (NEGST), Nairobi now called African University and a B.A. degree from Nairobi University, majoring in Philosophy and 
Literature. 

Canon Karanja has invested enormous amounts of energy in carrying out evangelistic and discipleship ministry across different churches.

He has a great passion for the empowerment of the Church for mission and the civic and economic engagement of the Christian constituency.

Convinced that the Church has a major transformational role in Kenya, he has made, healing, reconciliation and peace building as an overarching commitment of the NCCK for the whole of the Kenyan nation.

 

 

DR NELSON MAKANDA'S PROFILE

 

Dr. Nelson Ndong’a Makanda joined the Council as the Deputy General Secretary in January 2015 following a competitive recruitment exercise.

 

The soft spoken father of 3 is an accomplished Bible scholar and holds a PhD in Biblical Studies from AIU (African International University), formerly Nairobi Evangelical Graduate School of Theology (NEGST). He has extensive skills and experience in peace building, conflict transformation and ethnic relations which are key areas of the Council’s engagement.

 

The NCCK’s second in command, is married to Carol Ayuma, and is a strong believer in scriptures. He has served in various capacities with the latest being an Associate Pastor with Nairobi Baptist Church.

 

Joining the Council in 2015 was a come-back for Dr Makanda who had previously worked for the Council as the Regional Coordinator for South Rift Region before he left for further studies.

 

 In his previous engagements, Dr. Makanda taught Mathematics and Economics at Laikipia High School, Nyahururu, in 1997 before graduating with a Bachelors degree in Education from Egerton University a year later. He later on served with FOCUS in student ministry and Bible Society of Kenya as a Bible translator.

 

As the Deputy General Secretary, Dr. Makanda’s functions include overseeing spiritual formation of the membership and staff as well coordination of  Inter - religious engagements. He is also the NCCK representative to various national dialogues and processes in addition to deputizing the GS.

 

His vision is to mobilize those around him to bring liberation to the hurting poor, weak and disadvantaged for a just, free, equitable and godly society to the glory of God.
