To transform lives through ecumenism, capacity building, advocacy and service delivery.
One Church; United in Faith and Mission Witnessing to Jesus Christ and Transforming Lives.
In pursuing its Christian calling, the Council shall uphold:
The National Council of Churches of Kenya (NCCK), has scored another first, after it inspired congregants at ABC Ndulilya church in Machakos county to put up a magnificent Sanctuary at an estimated cost of Ksh. 5 million.
Through its highly successful Church and Community Mobilization Process (CCMP), the Council rallied the worshipers to raise resources that eventually saw them put up the 300 capacity new building. The new sanctuary was opened a week ago by Bishop Ruth Mulandi of the African Brotherhood Church, much to the delight of worshipers.
The elated team could not hide their joy following the transformation that has seen them move away from their initial mud structure to the new building. Speaking to Jumuia news, NCCK’s Programme Officer Laban Ashioya, said: “Churches and communities are wallowing in poverty not necessarily because they lack resources but because that which is available is not utilized well. If we start with a single step we will inspire others.”
He added that the Council intervened at Ndulilya after a wall of the former mud structure collapsed during a church session.
“The former structure had mud walls which collapsed during one of our reviews. It was then that through CCMP, the Church rallied members to mobilize resources and put up a new Sanctuary. CCMP has really opened their eyes. They are now able to utilize their resources, not just to build churches but also to transform their families,” observed Ashioya.
He added that the team had resolved to hold quarterly meetings with local chief in Mitaboni market aimed at building a community health facility to cater for area residents.
ABC Ndulilya Mitaboni, is presided over by Sister Dorcas. Pastor Joseph Mwangi is the CCMP facilitator.
