PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH OF EAST AFRICA MOURNS FALLEN KDF SOLDIERS
The PCEA has learned with sadness the brutal killing of our KDF soldiers who died in the line of duty by the acts of insurgent’s enemies of human existence and peaceful co-existence of our people.
The Church advocates for peace for all humanity irrespective of their colour, religious creed and belief. The Church supports AMISON and its presence in Somalia as an act of bringing in the much required peace in the war torn country of Somalia and her neighbours.
Peace is Christ gift to the apostles and the society at large. St. John quotes Christ saying: “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give you I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid” (John 14:27 NIV).
This is a time of reconstruction and rebuilding of the collapsed walls of our society. PCEA is learning and following the good example of prophet Nehemiah who undertook a project of rebuilding the walls of Jerusalem city. We believe that the walls broken down by the enemy needs an urgent and concerted effort to rebuild. This is an uphill task, however it has to be done through the virtues of commitment, dedication, sacrifice as the one exhibited by our brave soldiers through their presence is Somalia.
The enemies’ fire will not deter the focus of our brave soldiers. Just like the bold Nehemiah, the battle has to be won. The Church is saddened that the nation has lost young, brilliant and focused soldiers who were participating in International Peace Keeping.
Presbyterian Church appreciated and acknowledges the ongoing rescue mission of the ones wounded and being air lifted back to Kenya. Further the church applauds the government effort in reaching and mourning with the affected families here in Kenya.
The Church is aware that this is a difficult moment particularly when young lives are taken by the brutal hand of the enemy. PCEA therefore sends her deepest sympathies to all the bereaved families and pray that God will give them strength and comfort during this sad incident. Our hearts and messages of encouragement and quick recovery also go out to those who are receiving treatment in hospital.
We can only conclude with like the writer Kimberly who stated “A life full of enthusiasm, hope and contributions through one’s own talent is a life well lived”.
God bless Kenya, Shalom! Peace!.
Thank you.

STRATEGIC PLAN, 2012 – 2016

INTRODUCTION

1.1.      In Preparing the Strategic Plan of the Church, it is understood that the overriding desire and mission at hand is the   “Transformation of PCEA from a Good to a Great and Dynamic Model Church, empowering, equipping and building the people of God for effective ministry and mission work, locally and beyond.”

1.2       This mission is to be achieved through a specially committed, zealous and vigorous approach to Mission and Ministry Work, Human and Social Development and, Economic Health.  These are the three Strategic Pillars on which the strategic plan rests.  Without dealing with the three areas (Strategic Pillars) the plan would remain a dream.  Above all dependence on the Word of God, Prayer and action is critical.  The people of God will have to pray, pray and pray and when they have prayed, pray again.

1.3       This concept is clearly appreciated by likening it to a building or a temple with the key task as the roof and the apex, supported by Three Strategic Pillars (Ministry and Mission Work, Human and Social Development, and Economic Health) which in turn stand on a firm and unshakable foundation “For Other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ” 1 Corinthians 3:11.  This is clearly demonstrated in Diagram I, referred in paragraph 1.9.1 below.  In each Strategic Pillar, there are a number of strategic priorities which must be addressed during the 1st plan period.  These priorities give direction for the plan’s implementation.

1.4      The specific critical priorities under the Strategic Pillars during the 1st Plan period (2012-2016) are summarized as follows:

  • Enhance the mission work;
  • Improve financial performance;
  • Enhance investment activities and resource mobilization;
  • Improve and maximize utilization of institutions and facilities for service;
  • Enhance member satisfaction with service delivery;
  • Instill prudent debt management and control;
  • Build institutional and human resource capacity and competence;
  • Establish an integrated information and communication management system;
  • Create awareness in  sustainable agriculture, food security and livelihoods;
  • Establish a system for participation in environmental conservation, enhancement and management;
  • Develop a mechanism for implementation, monitoring and evaluation at all levels;

 

1.5       The key task which embraces Vision and Mission on the one hand, and the Strategic Pillars as well as the Foundation on the other, will remain unchanged.  However, the strategic priorities will be adjusted from one plan period to the other.  Plan periods are referred to as horizons (see Diagram 2, referred in paragraph 1.9.2 below)

1.6       This plan concentrates on Horizon 1 (2012-2016) without losing sight of what should preferably be addressed in Horizons II, III and beyond.  There are policy directions / options which will take several years to realize, but their implementation must be founded on what is done in the first horizon.

1.7       The Strategic plan concentrates on what should be done in the first horizon (2012-2016) particularly within the three strategic pillars.  The actual activities in each strategic pillar are listed as “Strategic Priorities” as tabulated in Diagram I below, and discussed in detail in chapters 5 and 6.

1.8       Embrace good governance as well as transparency, accountability and answerability—the importance governance, transparency and accountability cannot be overemphasized.
