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):

David Njeru, ECLEA-Kenya regional coordinator

Last weekend ending Sunday 10 September we had an amazing teaching on Forgiveness and Reconciliation at Jesus Celebration Centre in Tassia in Embakassi. This meeting was perhaps one of the largest in recent times with close to 40 attendees.

It was one of the most practical this year. One of the leaders shared with me privately how she was able to forgive someone who had seriously offended her. She shared with me that during a past meeting we emphasized forgiveness and she took an initiative to forgive that person. The issue had widely affected her in various ways including not being able to think straight. After she forgave, she felt light and more focused. It was one of the most difficult decisions she has ever made in her life.

Of all the leaders who were present, they agreed that forgiveness is key especially when serving people since hurting leaders hurt others.

After the meeting I met a pastor who had also struggled with forgiveness though he was not in our meeting. He was very sick and bedridden for a whole year though doctors could not diagnose his sickness. His relatives openly and defiantly told him that they are tired of taking care for him and they are waiting for his death. He was able to forgive and God saved him miraculously from that time. He is now a very committed pastor. He plans to organize an ECLEA meeting in the near future for others to benefit. 


I would say that ECLEA is playing a very pivotal role in reaching many pastors and leaders in East Africa.

Thank you, Jonathan, together with ECLEA partners for making this a reality.

I have been very successful of late in matters of conference teaching. Am hoping that the remaining two more conferences will be as successful as past one. My fourth conference this year was on 24-26/8/023. We were dealing with the book of James. The turnout was so amazing. There was a lot of engagement from the participants which made the learning easier.

Am hoping that if this continues. I confirm to you that great number of believers will be transformed.

NAFISHA ABDALLA Was challenged by Paul who even though he was a prisoner was able to write to the Ephesians, and we have the book today. She felt that we being free should do more for the Lord.
PASTOR ZABLON Learnt on the importance of being filled with the Holy Spirit. He learnt on the fact that the Holy Spirit is a guarantee and a deposit and that God will fulfill his promise of the other blessings.
BISHOP PETER MWANGI Learnt on the importance of the fact that now the barriers between the Jews and the Gentiles have been broken, because of the death and the blood of Jesus.
DOROTHY T. ZABLON Was happy to learn that all people male and female are now sons in Christ. She learnt that the discrimination is now finished because of Christ redemption plan.

Thank you again for our ECLEA sponsors for making this program possible and because of the impact it is making to the church in our country.

PST. NDIRANGU – (OUR HOST) Was amazed to learn that Elimelech, Naomi’s husband, Mahlon, and Chillion her sons in law, did not just die because she left Judah and by marrying Moabite wives.
BISHOP JOEL MBURU Learnt on the importance of the sovereignty of God. He saw the hand of God in all the undertakings of the life of Naomi. This finally ends well with Ruth becoming a great grandmother of Jesus Christ.
MRS. ANN NDIRANGU Learnt on the good character of Ruth which is worth emulating. She realized that this is what gave her favour before the God of Israel to whom she became.
REV. SAMUEL KIARIE Learnt on the key role that Boaz played by being used of God to be a blessing to Naomi and her family. That God had arranged everything as him being the kinsman redeemer.

Once again, we are grateful for ECLEA and our sponsors for making this meeting possible. It will help our people and the churches to continue preaching the word of God in the right way because of this foundation.

July 2023

Despite the political challenges and demonstrations called by the opposition against the government of Dr. William Ruto, we managed to do our first meeting of the second part of 2023. It was held at PEFA Church in Mattassia in Kajiado County last weekend with about 15 participants.

Some of the key highlights were as follows:
I) The emphasis of a church not being a building but a living organism was a major point of reflection.
II) The locality, universality, visibility & invisibility of the church of Jesus Christ played a major shift in understanding the real church of Jesus Christ.
III) The major truth of the church being missional (mission oriented) was grasped so well. This was particularly anchored on the need to train all believers to be fishers of men. On Sunday 16 July, it was set aside for that purpose and the results were amazing. 

All in all, I would say that ECLEA is really playing a major role in equipping the body of Christ.

Thank you.

MAY 2023: Last week we had a rather unique training on Forgiveness and Reconciliation in a neighboring County of Kajiado. 

How unique was it? For the very first time, we had teachers training at Nelion Preparatory & Junior Secondary School, unlike the traditional "church leaders." The attendance was close to 20.

The course was extremely helpful as it gave the teachers the much-needed equipping not only on how to deal amongst themselves in regard to this training; but also with pupils, students, other members of staff, parents and guardians.

One of the major compliments that were received was the realization that the more one holds on unforgiveness the more danger it poses to the victim. The easier it is to forgive the better it is for cohesion hence more better results.

They are actually looking forward to the next engagement that may be helpful in their profession.

Fredrick Njoroge, ECLEA-Kenya regional coordinator

MAY 2023: Thanks a lot for continued support to enable us to reach the unreachable, for this is the core reason and vision of ECLEA. Probably you know what we are going through in our nation economically. Life is not easy as expected. But we are moving on. This gospel must be preached, in season and out of season.

My third conference ended last weekend. We were learning the Book of James. This book has what today's church needs. Wherever I go, participants demand the same to be repeated. Amazing. The urge to learn is getting stronger day by day. Putting people together is no longer our business, leaders plan and invite us.

God bless you, Fredrick Njoroge

REPORTS - The delegates continued well and the meeting was greatly interactive, especially because of the small group’s periods which they enjoyed and was a great source of learning.
NAFISA ABDALLA – Learnt on the negativity of fear. She noted that the best fear is healthy fear, which helps her to fear God and live a life of pleasing him.
PASTOR ZABLON TIEMA – Was greatly help by the SOLER Acronym on the attending skills. He said it will help him much when he will be doing his counselling.
PASTOR JOHN KIRUI – Learnt that everyone experiences stress and that it is a part of life, but one must learn to manage it.
DOROTHY ZABLON - She learnt on the difference between the 3 type of counselling, informal, formal and crisis counselling. She also learnt on how to handle stress.
– Was grateful to have learnt on how to handle anger.

Respectfully submitted,

April 2023

I am Pst. Julius Oduor Olale, Coordinator of ECLEA Trainings in the Region covering Migori and Homabay Counties, in southwestern Kenya. I conducted a training on the topic of Forgiveness and Reconciliation. It was the first training. 24 people attended the training.

The reception of the teachings was good as well as the response. Quite a number of leaders reacted to the fact that the subject opened their eyes to the essentiality of forgiveness. They realized how well they are now equipped with the knowledge ready to also teach and house people in their area of ministry into Forgiveness and Reconciliation.

Forgiveness being an obligation for the forgiven really stood out as an insightful statement. Why Jesus used long parables to expound on forgiveness shows how essential the subject is, this also was one of the highlights of the day. The impact was good and they are looking forward to more Trainings.

"Thanks for the opportunity to learn these wonderful subject of forgiveness. Earlier I had not known that forgiveness is an obligation for me as the forgiven. I had also not known how the parable on Luke 7:36-50 is connected to our love for God and people in connection with forgiveness - That we have been forgiven much, and what we have to forgive others is small compared to the wrong that God through Christ has forgiven us. I am so blessed." The above are words from one of the leaders who attended the training in Migori.


Best regards, Julius Olale


Fredrick Njoroge, ECLEA-Kenya regional coordinator

We all fine here, busy in the vineyard of our Lord. My second conference is over. I did it at the middle of this week. We had good times learning the practical epistle of James.

Participation was good and very interactive session was in the room. This including questions and many observations and comments. This time I had a few youth leaders in the meeting and this encouraged very much. My observation so far is that this time around we might have more than THREE conferences due to high demand of the participants, and I think that this is a good sign of acceptance ECLEA is receiving on the ground.

With regards,

Rev. Fredrick Njoroge (Nyeri-Nyandarwa regional coordinator)


David Njeru, ECLEA-Kenya regional coordiantor

Our 2nd training of the first half of the year was done early this week on the Book of Habakkuk with at least 15 participants.

In the recent past, the country has been experiencing some uncertainties as the opposition leader had called for demonstrations against the government fighting for what he termed as election injustices among other areas. As much as this issue is yet to be addressed amicably by the two sides, it goes without saying that the book (Habakkuk) shed much light to the pastors especially on how to guide the flock in similar cases.

The book was timely as it addresses such with great clarity. The greatest question was if God is a God of justice, is He one-sided? The answer is a resounding "No!"

ECLEA is a blessing to the body of Christ in Kenya & beyond & we appreciate all who support to make such trainings possible.

Thank you.

Rev. David Njeru
Nairobi Region Coordinator


Fredrick Njoroge, ECLEA-Kenya regional coordinator

I did this conference last weekend 9-11/3, 2023 earlier than expected due to unavoidable circumstances. We dealt with the book of James, and the conference was extremely wonderful. Participation was very encouraging and the desire to learn was amazing.
As usual we hand senior church leaders as well as their juniors from different denominations. Out of this desire to learn, I have committed myself to be there again, God willing before I end my first half of this year.

It has not been easy due to big drought that has hit our nation, but we are trusting God.

Rev. Fredrick


Thomas Mwai, ECLEA-Kenya regional coordinator

We did our AA conference early February at Kiriri Deliverance church with a host of 16 pastors mainly drawn from the Pentecostal. We had two days to go through the book of 1st Timothy. It was the 1st time we were introducing ECLEA in this area and basically the conference could not have come at a better time.

In the conference there was a pastor who lately started a church opposite an existing one. After going through the book, he invited me in his church to preach and reconcile them because they had been having a problem with the sound. each have been trying to make the instruments louder distracting one another. I taught them the message of church as a family. I had to call both of them and actually went through chapter 3:13-14 and chapter 5:1-3.

We thank God for ECLEA Kenya and the work it's doing to the hearts of men.

8. Kenya Light Congregation
9. Stewards Revival Church

REPORTS -The delegates were excited about the meeting and were eager to listen to all what was being taught.
– Learned that one can be lost but yet be in the house. The example of the elder brother syndrome in Lk.15. he was still in his father’s house but was full of jealousy, which showed when his lost brother returned.
TABITHA WAMBUI – Learnt on the importance and benefits of fasting. She also learnt on the importance of praying before choosing leaders. (The example of Jesus).
– Learnt on the importance of delegating duties, so that one can be relieved of some duties and embark on the most difficult ones.
– (Our Host) learnt on the importance of door to door evangelism which is still very applicable today.

Best regards, 
James Kamau


David Njeru, ECLEA-Kenya regional coordinator

We had our first 2023 training which ended Sunday 26 February afternoon with 12 participants at Jesus Kingdom City Ministry International in Nairobi South C hosted by Pst Andrew.

The reason we had it this late is that most Kenyan churches take the month of January in prayer & fasting & the early part of February going back to normal programming.

We covered 1 Timothy which was regarded as very helpful by the participants. The most appreciated part was the 15 qualifications of a leader. Some could not quite imagine passing all of them minus none.

Generally, the teaching was seen as an eye opener since all the participants had never attended any of our ECLEA seminars as this is a new site.

We are looking forward for more seminars in this side of Nairobi.

Thank you.

January and February ECLEA conference reports. We have done two conferences so far up to now. The first conference was at Kakamega, county Navakholo, a new place called Namakoye. We had 21 participants, fifteen pastors and six church leaders.

All leaders were surprised when we explained in length about the character and the qualifications of a leader according to 1 Timothy 3. Three of them were found with more than one wife. They explained that they were just appointed by their Bishops and sent to the churches. They are after churches nothing more. They decided to step down as the per the word of God.

The second one was in Ngalasha, Bungoma county, attend by 28 participants, twelve pastors and sixteen church leaders. We are the beneficiaries of ECLEA training materials. We appreciate you for the hard work you are doing for this ECLEA training and materials.

This material is good, very good, like the one of Marriage and Parenting. I am using that material to teach in Sulwe fm radio every Wednesday night. I use Bukusu language. It covers Kakamega, Busia, Bungoma, Mumias and Kitale. Every week more than twenty marriages are being restored.

May God bless you all,

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).

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


David Njeru, ECLEA-Kenya regional coordinator

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.

Sept 15-17, 2022

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.
