Mission & Vision

“I am glad to see you all. It is interesting to know that God answers payers, even those that are done without contemplating. I firmly believe in the scriptures.” These were the words of the National Council of Churches of Kenya (NCCK) new deputy General Secretary Dr. Nelson Makanda, during his inaugural address to Council staff, where he was formally unveiled by his boss Reverend Canon Peter Karanja. Speaking at the Council headquarters shortly after taking over from his predecessor, Dr. Makanda added that he was excited to be back at the Council in his new capacity having previously served as a regional coordinator for South Rift Region. Dr. Makanda declared that he was ready to learn and engage in what the NCCK is all about. He indicated that he would not hesitate to ask questions where necessary. “I question the book and at times ask that things be done in a different way,” said an elated father of three.

Makanda, who holds a PhD in Biblical Studies from Africa International University, Quoted from Isaiah chapter 40 verse 25-31, and encouraged Staff to rely on God for the renewal of their strength as they deliver on their mandate.

Addressing the meeting Canon Karanja rallied staff to support his deputy pointing out that demands for Dr. Makanda’s attention were quite high. He lauded Council staff for their dedication and commitment to duty. “Dr. Makanda will succeed if you help him settle quickly. If he lingers because you are holding something back from him, it shall cripple us,” advised Canon Karanja who was flanked by Programmes Director Susie Ibutu. 

While expressing confidence in him, the NCCK General Secretary urged Dr. Makanda to freely reach out to all staff, terming their potential as amazing. “We have a very important staff. The competence exhibited by them is quite amazing,” said Canon Karanja.

Staff who spoke affirmed their support for Dr. Makanda who took over from Mr. Oliver Kisaka who retired last December. While senior accountant Agnetor Mutia expressed optimism that she would work well with Dr. Makanda, Leonard Mukuria-driver with the Council- hoped that the new deputy general secretary will be available for bible study. “I have interacted with you and know that you have a lot to share with us. I remember you answered my questions to my satisfaction when I spoke to you,” Mukuria revealed. Milcah Ochieng who is the human resource Administrative Secretary, hoped that Dr. Makanda will understand and bear with staff as he goes about his duties.  

We all join in welcoming Dr. Makanda and pray that, the Council will soar greater heights as he works with the General Secretary.
