FOCUS in 2019
Fellowship of Christian Unions continues to seek the realization of the vision of Students and Associates impacting the Church and Society. In the next two year, we look forward to the implementation of the reviewed FOCUS Strategic plan Each year, among many initiatives, we fortify the achievement of the overall vision by putting emphasis on specific areas. In 2018, we rallied Mentorship, Missions and Infrastructural development (Hatua initiative). In 2019 we have a special focus on Social transformation, Theological engagement, and Infrastructural expansion (Hatua initiative). Some of the events that will drive the agenda for this years are anchored in the FOCUS Calendar
Within our learning institutions is the battle for minds and hearts. We will seek to contribute in shaping conversations and opinions taking place in our institutions of higher learning and in the country and redirect them towards godly perspectives and real solutions. Some of the issues identified for engagement include Corruption, Drugs and Substance Abuse, and Depression.
Engaging Doctrinal Issues
We acknowledge that students continue to struggle with theological issues especially with resurgence of the prosperity gospel and “super apostleship”. In this way, we shall be safeguarding biblical teaching that will translate into Christ-likeness and thereby be salt and light in our spheres of influence. The culmination of such endeavor will be the flagship National Ezra conference from the 28th of December 2019 – 2nd January 2020
The Hatua Campaign was launched in 2018, with the goal of constructing Students Center in Kasarani and acquire land in the remaining 5 regions. We have planned for groundbreaking of the Kasarani Student Center on the 4th of May 2019 during the FOCUS AGM. We trust God to raise more funds to enable the project to run smoothly. We shall communicate more details on this. In the mean time we trust that alongside the normal ministry support, God will enable you to provide additional support for this noble venture.
Digital strategies for ministry
The environment has significantly changed, and many of the young people are extremely active on the digital platforms. We therefore envision an improved integration of digital strategy in all our ministry approaches for more effective ministry to Students and Associates
