Kenya celebrated the fiftieth anniversary of its independence in 2013. Kenya has the largest economy in East Africa. The violence that followed the 2007 national elections was a very troubling event for those who love Kenya, especially given the nation's importance. The national elections of 2013, however, marked a return to the peaceful transition of government, and most Kenyans are looking forward to the future with confidence.

ECLEA in Kenya

ECLEA personnel did their first teaching in Kenya in June 2007. We returned in August of that year. Since that time, ECLEA has been very active throughout Kenya. Most importantly, we have established a good and growing inter-denominational and inter-tribal ECLEA-Kenya committee of pastor-teachers. The fact that we insist on being inter-tribal is particularly important in Kenya which has 42 tribes and where, although sometimes unspoken, tribalism is an important issue. The ECLEA-Kenya team has been the most active of all the East African ECLEA teams in conducting all-African church leader trainings.

Here are updates from ECLEA's Kenya team concerning ECLEA's work in Kenya (older news accounts of ECLEA's work in Kenya and the rest of East Africa are located in the News Archive):

I hope you are doing well good in the Lord. As we come to the close of the year, a lot has been done in this God's kingdom that we can be proud of. I did my last conference last weekend 15th to 17th this December. I was supposed to do this conference last month, but number of challenges arose that made us postpone for two times. Finally we were able to fix it last weekend.
In this conference we went through the course of Biblical Stewardship. Senior church leaders and ordinary church leaders attended. The meeting was very, good especially in the areas of interaction.

Majority of our people in many different areas now are looking to us and requesting us for a training. This shows that ECLEA is becoming popular in this region. Next year I am hoping that more training will continue and church leadership will be properly equipped.

God bless you, Fred Njoroge

We thank God for his grace and mercy who has enabled us to go through 2022 successfully in terms of ECLEA training is concerned. Our last training concluded on Sunday 27 November at Deliverance Church - Kariobangi South on the Book of Habakkuk with 15 participants. Unfortunately, I do not have any photos as the camera mem card used got corrupted and the attempted recovery for weeks has proved futile. Perhaps a good lesson to use more than one gadget,

Here are some highlights:
 - It was amazing to discover that apart from being a prophet, Habakkuk was also a poet and a musician. 
- The question of why his name does not appear anywhere else in the Bible was a mystery.
- The theme of God's judgment as he used Chaldeans (Babylonians) was well understood, especially the moral law of a good God allowing evil in a society.
- Manasseh who was Judah's worst king who worshipped idols and practised children sacrifice is a big lesson to those in leadership that none is immune to evil influence regardless of one's status. His motivation is still unclear. In the same breath, what made Jehoaz reign for only three months was a subject of further study.
 - It was also noted that Habakkuk is the only prophet who questioned God repeatedly in regard to the suffering of the righteous. God's answer not to judge hastily helped us to understand better the aspect of judging situations. 

In closing, I want to appreciate so much for the opportunity accorded to serve. I also want to appreciate the supporters & donors of ECLEA. To Bsp Barnabas thank you for leading us here in Kenya. My fellow regional coordinators asanteni (thank you).

Regards, David Njeru

ECLEA-Kenya, Kiambu region, 2nd-half Report
We did our 1st meeting at GMS Githurai 45 on June where I did Stewardship. The group consisted of 14 church leaders most of who attended 1st Timothy barely two months before. Githurai 45 sometimes is very dirty and the participants were astonished to know that it is church responsibility to keep environment clean. Stewardship goes to the heart of the gospel was the conclusion in the very interactive meeting.

We did our second meeting at Tatu City on July 18-20 where we did 1st Timothy with barely 11 church leaders. One of the pastors said, "I have gone to Bible school but I have not seen things the way the book brings it out. The flow of thought about especially the goal of our instructions.” As a plan of action the pastors agreed to work together regardless of their difference in certain matters.

We did our last meeting at Mwitirithia on August 18-20 @ Deliverance church hosting 17 pastors drawn mainly from Pentecostal. We did Forgiveness and Reconciliation. In the meeting pastors learnt that it takes one to forgive but take two to reconcile. There was a vigorous debate on when you forgive and the other person is not willing.

I hope you have been well. By the grace of God I'm doing pretty fine and I thank God for his goodness. Indeed ECLEA work is really having impact in East Africa and especially Kenya. I was previleged to be in Karatina on last Friday and Saturday at Bishop Barnaba's where I was invited to teach a degree class together with Barnabas of 20 students on Forgiveness and Reconciliation. It was an awesome time the class was very live and interactive.

Most of the students were Bishops and pastors who confessed they had not known the difference between forgiveness and reconciliation. However, after undergoing the two days of intensive teaching they come to understand. One more amazing thing was that most of the participants thought that in order to forgive the offender has to ask for forgiveness. One of the Bishops confessed that out of this he has decided to forgive his brother who offended him many years back.

Bishop Barnabas is doing a commendable job over there we need to do what he is doing as well it is a challenge to all ECLEA leaders, if all of us can do that we will take ECLEA to another level all together.



Fredrick Njoroge, ECLEA-Kenya regional coordinator

I hope you are doing well wherever you are sir. We are somehow struggling here because of drought and famine that is within our community. We are believing God for rain in this season. Continue to pray for us sir.

I had my second conference this second half of the year, 27-29th October. We did engage ourselves on the book of James. As I told you before the turn up these days has not been a problem, so participation was excellent. Interaction within the course was very encouraging.

I feel that this noble exercise of getting those believers and Gods servant in enlarging their knowledge of the word of God is very essential, and we need to put more effort.

With Regards. Rev  Fredrick

Sept 23-25, 2022

We were scheduled to have our meeting beginning early September but because of the just concluded General Elections and the pending Supreme Court ruling, it was advisable to push it further hence our conclusion yesterday teaching on Forgiveness & Reconciliation.

The leaders that numbered about 32 were particularly impressed that such a course was availed to them especially immediately after the much closely contested Political General Elections.

Most were hurt in one way or the other including believers and the battle was taken from the streets to the social media. There were also many pastors and believers who had taken open sides with others "prophesying" openly so and so will be the president and it never came to pass. This left a bitter trail in church.

The teaching according to the attendees was a healing balm which will help greatly in cohesion not only on political fronts but in local churches especially the departmental leaders who handle many areas that need Biblical forgiveness and reconciliation.

One question that took quite some time in deliberating was, "Can one really forgive & forget?" It was a great relief to learn that as much as one may not forget, the remembrance should not bring bad feelings or emotions. It was taken with a lot of surprise that unforgiveness actually causes physical illness.

The question of how many times one should forgive was also a major highlight. The Biblical answer to this question was a heavy punch to everyone as many before this teaching thought there is a limit of a few times. The aspect of unlimited forgiveness per day was a powerful revelation.

All in all, this teaching was hailed as "God sent."

Thank you so much Jonathan and all partners in bringing these kinds of materials to us.

Looking forward to the next teaching session in November.

I conducted the AA conference in my region on 16th to 18th September 2022 which had about 20 participants. This took place at God's Power Church International in Chogoria Town. We went through Forgiveness and Reconciliation where we found that this course has a lot to be admired. I found that many of us had not known the real meaning of forgiveness. Many were amazed to realise that forgiveness is part of God's nature and character and that it's part of essence and mission of Jesus Christ.

In the issue if understanding and applying forgiveness in our lives, a big number realise that they have been applying forgiveness in their lives, in a wrong motive like they thought that it's just a matter of doing away with it. Example: saying that what somebody or someone has done to you is of no big deal or doesn't matter. This helped them to know that forgiveness is recognising and acknowledging that what the other person did to them is wrong.

Apostle Githaiga asked a question about if someone fails to forgive or has unforgiving heart how does this affect his/her life. This brings us to what or how Randy Alcorn puts it or explains about the unforgiving heart/person when he "we harm no one through bitterness as much as we harm ourselves, bitterness is like drinking poison and waiting for the other person to die." (Alcorn 2009: 435). This left many of participants amazed because many thought that when you fail to forgive, you are as well affecting the other person’s life but this was not the case. At the end of this topic they realized that many would not consider themselves as forgiving persons when they came to realise what forgiveness is and what is not. They also gained a lot of knowledge on forgiveness and how they would help someone who had unforgiving heart.

In the issue if reconciliation they went into the deeper meaning of it and found that unlike forgiveness which is ones person small response to another person’s injustice, reconciliation is between two people coming to restore a relationship whose trust was broken. Example: abolishing the moral hindrance to fellowship. We found that it only takes one person to forgive but it takes two to be reunited. Forgiving happens inside the wounded person but reunion happens in a relationship between people. Many were amazed to realise that we can forgive a person who is not even ready to say sorry but we cannot be truly reunited unless one is honestly sorry. We also went into deep comparison of the differences between forgiveness and reconciliation. We discussed the importance of applying forgiveness and reconciliation in our lives today mostly using Worthington’s bridge model of reconciliation. 

This book helped many of the participants realise that it is not just a matter of being saved and going to heaven, but there are some areas where they need to look upon as they help to spread the gospel of peace as we wait for Jesus to come back. Thanks a lot to ECLEA for helping me reach many hearts through this course and enlightening many. I also thank you so much for helping me reach Tharaka nìthi people and represent them as regional Coordinator. 

With regards,
Lydiah Gathoni,
Tharaka Nithi regional Coordinator

I did my conference last weekend 15-17/9/2022. We were learning about the book of James. This conference amazed me so much, because I could not be able even to take a group photo due to their big number. Participants raged from senior pastors to the lowest level of leadership. we were about sixty (60) participants,

Among the participants, I managed to persuade a few to take a Diploma course in Karatina, I am still looking for others to enroll a class of their own.

I have never had a conference of this nature since I started. This is an assurance of great things ahead. I think things are getting better as we move on, this is a big encouragement to me especially at this moment in time when we are encouraging them to start contributing in supporting our conferences.

With regards, Rev. Fredrick (Regional coordinator Nyeri/Nyandarwa)

MAY THE GRACE OF OUR Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God and the fellowship of the holy Spirit be with you as you keep on serving the Lord. God is good and the ministry of E.C.L.E.A is touching and changing many pastors and leaders in our conferences.

I had a conference of Biblical Stewardship with ten participants which
included pastors and leaders of Oasis of love church Murang’a town and we had good time studying, praying and encouraging each other of how we can have healthy churches by practicing what we learn from the manual of Biblical stewardship.

May God richly bless you.

Today we were able to complete the book of Habakkuk. Many denominations were represented. The class had 18 participants, Bishops, Reverends, and Pastors.

The above participants decided to cater for their food and accommodation for two nights and we have been in class for three days studying the above-mentioned book. The amazing thing is that many Bishops have been teaching Habakkuk 2:4 out of context. Their frameworks on writing the vision with Big or capital letters was highly challenged. Many of them have never heard of the two dialogues between Habakkuk and God. How the book of Habakkuk begins with distress and ends with great joy was also a surprise to all participants.

A few of the participants were prosperity preachers and they taught their congregations that God cannot allow any calamity to occur in the life of a believer. But after going through the book on Chapter 1:2-4 and v. 5-11 they agreed that God can use even the Chaldeans or the Babylonians to execute his plan.

Finally they came up with plan on how they will teach this book to their Churches. One of the students said that "I repent of my sins because I have mislead so many people due to mine own ignorant." The conference was very lively and practical.

Kwangware, July 2022

This meeting continued well on the above-mentioned dates. The teachers were
James N. Kamau and Monica Wambui. It had 12 participants. The following major
denominations were represented.

DEACON PETER MUTINDA learnt on the importance of being interdependent and not independent. He saw the importance of socializing with others.

PASTOR DAVID MUKURIA said he has learnt on the following: effective communication, handling anger and being a good parent. He appreciated the training and said it was a great experience which was very timely and had impacted a great Godly image.

DEACON GODFREY MUTHONI expressed his thanks for the training. He said he had learnt that MARRIAGE IS God’s idea and not man’s. He had also learnt on the way the word of God guides in coming up with a healthy family.

PASTOR JOHN EKAKU learnt on the importance of proper family planning for families making them good stewards. He was also happy to have learnt on the right way of solving problems for spouses and that he should not ignore small things in
marriage. In general, all the participants were appreciative because of the facilitation of the meeting.

Best regards, James Kamau

Nairobi, July 2022
Here find our Nairobi region report for July.

We trained on the book of Habakkuk with 18 participants from various denominations.

The main highlights are as follows:
a) Waiting on God demands patience, perseverance and obedience.
b) Nothing takes God by surprise.
c) It is a great book that connects so well with today's believers who so often question God on some life challenges.
d) It is a great book that teaches one on confession of one's faith in God like Habakkuk.
e) A powerful appreciation of the God of good times and of bad times that concept was well understood.
f) A new perspective and transformation took place especially in understanding we can not "judge" God with bad things now only as confessed by the delegates.
g) The evil and bad in our midst should not worry us as God is dealing or will deal with them at His own discretion. 



Thank you, David Njeru

My last conference in the first half of the year was in 23-25th June. We were learning the book of James. This was one among the best conferences I have conducted so far. Participation was excellenct, and especially from senior pastors. Some went home with reading manuals something that is not normal to some meeting.

Bwana Asifiwe and may the peace of God which passeth all understanding keep your heart and mind as you keep serivng the Lord. We had a conference of fourteen pastors and leaders at Gikuo Pentecostal church on 21st-23 JUNE 2022 and the host is pastor Elizabeth Irungu. We were doing Biblical Stewardship and we had a good time of fellowship, praying together and also encouraging each other.

Thanks for your support, and may God bless E.C.L.E.A. in a big way.

On May 13, 2022 we concluded the last training in Nairobi Region for the first half of 2022 with The Book of Mark Part 2.

We had a total of 18 participants and the engagement was quite healthy as summarised below.

                              David Njeru teaching                                                                          Peter Mwangi teaching

Again, the issue of divorce and remarriage came up and was discussed at length but the Biblical principles carried the day. Of particular heat was if one was in an abusive marriage, should she still stick on and wait to be killed? The answer was separate!

Another interesting discussion was if Jesus was referring to Peter as Satan or had Satan entered Peter for him to deny Jesus. The answer was he was influenced by the devil to try and scuttle Jesus' mission on the cross. It was also seen that Peter could have been too emotional and immature in some areas. An interesting remark from a participant was, "Satan loaned Peter his mouth for a while."

The class was engaged!

The affirmation of women by Jesus in ministry by allowing them to be first in his empty grave was a profound element of the study as many denominations belittle women and end up not allowing them to serve in key ministry positions.

The fact that Jesus went through pain and crucifixion does not exclude believers from pain. Pain and suffering are part of the Gospel / package of salvation.

This is my second conference report this year. I did this conference on 28-30th April and everything worked so well. The participation was excellent. the learning mood was very high. This boils down to the core reason of ECLEA to the rural churches.

Actually, it’s is the pastors who are now demanding these conferences. No more challenges of organizing and planning. Our people are slowly taking charge of our conferences.

My next conference will be next month's June on the book of James. I have found this book to be very beneficial to the church today.

Best Regards,

Isaac Wanjala Nyongesa, ECLEA-Kenya regional coordinator

My name is Isaac Wanjala Nyongesa, I am the Regional Coordinator for Migori and Homabay Region. I conducted a training on 1 Timothy at Rongo and Uriri respectively. This is the first ever ECLEA conference in this region.

When I taught them the qualifications of a Church leader many were surprised because in some Churches some leaders have 2 wives hence a great debate on the same. When we shared the two honors and their different meaning in Chapter 5 according to their contexts, it was an eye-opener to our people. Now they understand that the true widows ought to be supported by the Church and every Church should pay their Pastors who run the affairs of the Church well. Every Chapter was very new to these people.

MARCH 2022: One of the teachers who has been attending our trainings invited me to minister to their school as well as to minister to the students. I told them that they should make good use of their time in school because if you fail to master your time,you fail to master your life. Great was the joy of the Lord after the teachings.


Hope you will also appreciate what God is doing in Kenya. Before you trained us, we were very blunt, but now we are ministering to Schools, Supermarkets, and our Churches. ECLEA is making a great impact.

ESTHER – Learnt of the importance of being a good steward of all the resources entrusted to her.

REV. MUTURI – Learnt on the importance of the stewardship of time. He noted on the importance of good time management, because time is life.

MARGARET – Said she had learnt that the church is a family. She saw the importance of the church members having good relationships with each other. This will help them to walk in unity and love and Christ would be manifested in them.

PST. SAMMY WAGURA – Learnt on giving in the New Testament as an act of love. He saw the truth of giving the tithe as a foundation, and looking at Christ giving himself fully at the cross as his example.

Respectfully submitted, Rev. James Kamau


James Kamau, ECLEA-Kenya regional coordinator

DOROTHY TIEMA – Learnt a lot about the importance of faith. She cited the examples of the woman with the discharge of blood and the Syrophoenican woman’s daughter’s healing.

PETER MUTINDA – Learnt on the importance of the temptations of Jesus. Jesus was led by the Holy Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. He noted that God is able to give us victory over temptations when we stand with his word.

PASTOR CHRIS – Learnt on the compassion of Jesus that as the good shepherd, he is concerned about both our spiritual and physical needs.

God bless you, James Kamau


David Njeru, ECLEA-Kenya regional coordinator

Yesterday 24th February we concluded our training on the book of Mark Part 1 with 16 participants.

The most appreciated part is the realization that it is a Gospel genealogy with the evergreen question "Who then is this?" as seen in Mark 4:41. The question of who he is and what he came to do came out very clearly.

The aspect of John's baptism of repentance & that of Jesus in Holy Spirit and Fire was discussed at length since some did not know the difference.

Another considerable discussion was the question of whether modern exorcists should engage a demon in a conversation or interview. We see Jesus only once in Mark 5 having a conversation with the possessed man but the same is not repeated anywhere else. We concluded that it should not be taught as a doctrine (to interview demons) since they do not speak the truth. Being led by the Holy Spirit in all matters was emphasized.

The choosing of the 12 disciples, the teaching in parables, traditions of men and what defiles one was rated as the most impactful sessions.

We are looking forward for the next course in March and with Jonathan in April.

Greetings in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ our Savior.

We did our AA conference on 24th Jan through 26th at Redeemed Restoration Church Saika. We hosted 13 Pastors drawn mainly from Pentecostal churches. One thing I have noted is that the book of 1st Timothy has real anointing even to us who are teaching. I have not taught it for sometime, but I felt the life in the book.

The participants noted that having come out of the pandemic it was a challenge that they could not do much to help the members when they needed helped as anticipated in chapter 5 about church responsibility to the poor. 

It is good to note that many Christians in our churches including a few pastors were able to remain faithful in the face of real attack. Again, I thank the ECLEA fraternity for your commitment and support. May God bless you.

George Kariuki, ECLEA-Kenya regional coordinator

I would love to submit that on Friday 21st January and 22nd 2022, we did a conference on 1st Timothy here in Murang'a with 55 pastors and leaders. I normally over invite because of the need and church growth that we are experiencing. Please note that people are hungry and we are only able to do notes and feeding people is always a challenge.

On 11th and 12th Feb we did Biblical Interpretation. This is always a big blessing as pastors and leaders learn hermeneutics. We had 45 pastors and bishops. I normally take 2 portions of Scripture and use them to teach and practice the lesson. We choose John 3:14-36 and Psalm 77:1-20. The challenge I got is 2 large groups and the time factor but all went well.

Barnabas Mpekethi, ECLEA-Kenya national coordinator

On date 20th-22nd Jan 2022 and 3rd-5th Feb 2022 I conducted two ECLEA conferences.
My target group, of Course Church Leaders and Pastors requested me to conduct Forgiveness and Reconciliation and the other Venue I conducted Biblical Stewardship.

At Gitunduti I conducted Forgiveness and Reconciliation. Many of the Church Leaders told me that before we covered that Course they were unable to understand the difference between Forgiveness and Reconciliation. One Pastor said, that every time people with disagreements visited his office, he used to force Reconciliation because he had no idea on how to go about it. Almost all of them, when we went through Worthington's REACH model process of Forgiveness, testified and said, "We never thought that forgiveness is a process, but we thought that it was an overnight event".

On February 3rd-5th I Conducted Biblical Stewardship with a good number of Church Leaders and Pastors at Kabiruini. Many Pastors had no clue whether the and Church can come up with a plan to clean their towns and villages. In fact they thought that it is only County government that is supposed to deal with the Stewardship of environment, I was able to challenge their frameworks and they promised me that they will be good ambassadors of the same.

To be sincere, after deliberations and healthy discussions, many believed that there is Mzungu time and African time. After we went through our Manual, they all agreed that we are all given equal amount of time by God. They appreciated this Course very much. Pastors told me that in their Churches they will write the following: "When you waste your time you are wasting your Life and, When you Master your time, you master your life.”

Some promised me that they will plant more trees and they will involve themselves in making sure that they will be cleaning the bushes near their homes so as to destroy the breeding places of mosquitoes and other harmful insects and bacterias. In a nutshell, we had good times with the participants.

February 2022
By the grace of God I'm doing well regardless of challenges; God's grace has been sufficient.  I was able to do the Stewardship conference as planned in Voi. The attendance was not so good the first day we had 12 participants but second and third day the number rose to 18; most of them had never done any training.

The participants found the course of great benefit especially the stewardship of money and possessions, since most of them were pastors. They promised that they will share this with their key church leaders back at their respective churches as an assignment for evaluation during a follow-up after 2 months since most of the churches do not have a written budget.

Thanks, Michael


Bob Mwangi, ECLEA-Kenya regional coordinator

Happy New Year and much love to you in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. God is good and faithful, and by his grace through ECLEA the church leaders have been graciously equipped to be more effective to make the church to be healthier.

We had a good conference in Kwanganga church in Murang’a from 7th to 9th February and we had 14 participants and we learning Biblical Stewardship. Leaders from different churches enjoyed Fellowship and praying together and agreed to move around their churches as a team to teach biblical stewardship. May God bless the work of ECLEA. My next conference will be in Nyahururu 3rd March to 5th.

May our good God bless you. Below are the photos of Kwanganga Conference:
