What is your ministry?
I work with Hope Community Champions, a ministry focused on mentoring youth so that they can realise their potential and use their talents in extending the Kingdom of Heaven to Earth. Currently, there are approximately 60 youths in the programme; they come from different churches, schools, and higher learning institutions across the region. I help mentor the youth in four areas: service, leadership, discipleship, and integrity. I am also a programme assistant for the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
What do you hope to gain from participating?
This training opportunity will provide an avenue for the transfer of knowledge and skills to the ministry I serve for the current and future generation. I hope to develop motivation and the ability to delegate without fear.
What is your leadership role?
Previously I was a support staff representative at KEMRI-Welcome Trust Research programme. I represented a team of staff during senior management meetings, articulating their welfare concerns. Within my church, I have been a lead manager for a camp for about 150 campers, coordinating logistics and providing daily training programmes. A few years ago, I led a team of humanitarian support staff to some of the refugee camps in Dadaab in the Northeastern part of Kenya. More recenlty, I led a team of assessment contractors to the Turkana region of Kenya to conduct site improvement support for medical facilities in the county. Currently, I am a co-leader of a Local Chapter – PEER Servants. In this role I oversee all of the operations of the Chapter, as well as lay out strategies for outreach and fundraising.
