Serving the purpose. A horn speaker modified using a waste mineral water bottle to address the gathering. Embracing the tradition. The moderator is being dressed with the regalia which was said to be worn by the Ethiopians as a ceremonial dressing. In his keynote, the Moderator said wearing this traditional attire is pointing forward to the fulfillment of the dream the missionaries had when they brought the Good News to Kenya, with the aim of taking it to the northern part of Kenya and crossing the border to Ethiopia.

The Nendeni (Mission) Board Constitution

Preamble
A25.1 “The Heart of the Christian Ministry”. The basis of Christian Ministry is Christ’s ministry of out reaching love. Christian Ministry is the expression of the mind and mission of Christ by a community of believers and demonstrates a common life of gratitude and devotion, witness and service, celebration and discipleship. All Christians are called to this ministry of servanthood in the world to the glory of God and for the actualisation of fulfilled humanity.

A25.2 The forms of this ministry are diverse in local interest and in accents, yet always Catholic in spirit and outreach (Mission of the Church, see Ill, Chapter IV of Practice and Procedure).
A25.3 The commissioning and the sending of the disciples of Jesus, sets the authority and the framework of all disciples thereafter who go out ill His Name as He commands; “Go ye therefore and teach all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the son and of the Holy Spirit Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you; and lo! I am with you always even to the end of the world; Amen” (Matthew

28: 19-20). It is in conformity and in the emphasis on the “GOING OUT” that the General Assembly decided to strongly adopt the title NENDENI (MISSION) BOARD.
A25.4 The above command is evidenced by the words of St. Paul to the Romans; “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? How shall they hear without a preacher. And how shall they preach except they be sent? As it is written: How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the Gospel of peace and bring glad tidings of good things” (Romans 10: 13-15).

A25.5 In its broad interpretation Nendeni (Mission) Board becomes the outreaching arm of the Church both in its evangelistic emphasis through and beyond presbyterial jurisdiction when the situation boundaries as soon as the activities are firmly placed on the hands of the nearest Presbyteries.

A25.6 The interpretation held by the General Assembly, where Nendeni area denotes an area hitherto unreached with the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and Outreach area denoting an area where Christians have newly moved by migration or employment, beginning to plant the Church, is important to keep in mind in these endeavours.
