Previous Activities

Bear with our inability to find out the chairpersons from 1988 when the KCCU began. There have been 11 members of the Executive council until recently when 2 more were added to make the number 13. KCCU got a patron named Dr. Gakunga D. K in 2007. On 26th December 1997 at a Londiani mission an Interim Associates Organizing Committee composed of 7 members was formed.  Later on in April 25th 1998 the Executive council then met and with the committee and organized for the first associate Sunday which was held on 13th December 1998 whereby associates were contacted by posting letters to them.  The associates had once planned and attended a mission to Maragua from 24th-28th November 1999

The first tri-annual mission was held in 2005 from 2nd to 8th May to fulfil the Great Commission in Matthew 28:19-20. Other tri-annual missions have been held henceforth. There have also been annual missions as outlined below:

 1997 -------------Londiani

1998 -------------Makueni

1999 --------------              Nakuru (Dundori and Ngorika)

2005 --------------Garissa

2006---------------Samburu

2007---------------Samburu

2008---------------Commission 2008,(Shimoni and Msambweni)

2009----------------Msambweni(Shimoni and Msambweni)

2010-----------------Msambweni (Lungalunga and Mamba)

2011---------------- (Commission 2011 at Kabarak University)

2012-----------------Kapenguria (Ortum and Sigor)

Future Activities

This year we are planning to go for Kapenguria 2 as we reach out to Sigor and Lomut while doing follow up at Ortum.

Some of the challenges that that the union has gone through in those early years include interference of the union calendar by frequent students’ chaotic activities such as strikes and riots hence closure of entire university. Another challenge that has persisted is the financial constraints among members and even as a union as well as backsliding of members. Letters used to be sent to invite speakers and so there was a challenge of getting the reply and at times standby speakers had to be given a short notice.

KCCU joined FOCUS (Fellowship of Christian unions) on 28th November 1992. And we even had some students attend commission 1998. Members have been attending conferences organized by FOCUS ever since. In addition stem staffs have been sent to be available to the benefit of the Union.

Where do you see the Union 25 years from now? What are the core values would you want to see 25 years from now and beyond? It’s the desire of all those who have passed through this Union to find it much better than they left it. It’s the desire of all that the associates will be at the forefront in helping to finance some of the major Union activities. Even as we look back and see the faithfulness of the Lord. It’s our responsibility to write the vision of the Christian Union boldly for all to see and run with it. It’s upon us all to visualize a Christian union that’s faithful at handling scripture.   Members with team work, genuine brotherly love among the members and commitment to the great commission that Christ himself mandated us to.
