ACC&S Top Leadership Envisioned
February 12, 2021
Moderator Jeremiah Ngumo, the head of the Africa Christian Church and Schools (ACC&S), has led an envisioning session for the top church leadership in the continued implementation of the Church and Community Mobilisation Process (CCMP).
The envisioning session at Jumuia Conference and County Home Limuru is being attended by the top-most leadership of the ACC&S who include Moderator Ngumo, Deputy Moderator Rev Luka Kuria, General Secretary Rev Julius Kimani, Deputy General Secretary Rev David Kimemia, and Treasurer Elder Edith Ngugi. The costs have been borne by the NCCK.
Speaking during the session, Moderator Ngumo stated that CCMP may seem like an undiscovered and unexperimented process but one which, once embraced, leads to development and self reliance of churches.
“We have walked this journey since 2012 when the CCMP was introduced to our church”, Moderator Ngumo noted, adding that though the journey was tough, it was worth it.
The importance of the envisioning session, Moderator Ngumo explained, was that the other members of the leadership team were not envisioned in the past. During the introduction of the CCMP in the ACC&S in 2012, Moderator Ngumo was envisioned together with the then head of the church, Moderator Julius Karanja.
Rev Canon Chris Kinyanjui, the NCCK General Secretary, appreciated the commitment of the leadership of ACC&S to the implementation of CCMP when welcoming the leaders to the session. He indicated that the CCMP is a key priority for the NCCK, and the Executive Committee is working towards the process being adopted by all the member churches.
On her part, the NCCK Programmes Director, Susie Ibutu, expressed the commitment of the NCCK to accompany the member churches implementing the CCMP by financing the training costs.
The leaders were taken through the process of envisioning CCMP in their church through a discussion of the question “how do we invest in the God-given resources that we have as a church and as a community?”
The Church and Community Mobilisation Process (CCMP) is a programme that seeks to awaken the church as God’s instrument for human transformation. It promotes transformation and empowerment of the people by enabling them go through a series of Bible Studies that enable them address their needs with their God-given resources.
