Short-Term Experience in Ministry (STEM) Programme is the Fellowship of Christian Unions’ (FOCUS) Leadership development program. The running theme is “Developing Leaders, Transforming Lives”. It was launched in 1992 as a follow-up to the FOCUS missions’ conference dubbed Commission Conference, to give fresh graduates an opportunity to serve God in the Universities and Colleges, Church and Society on a short-term basis (one year). The program was started to meet three needs which FOCUS felt remain critical to Christianity in Kenya:

  1. The need for trained, mature Christian leaders to influence Church and Society.
  2. The need for more staff to disciple students on campus.
  3. The need to encourage Christian involvement in Society particularly in social issues.

In 25 years since the inception of the STEM program, over 500 graduates have gone through STEM-SM and STEM CD.
