 THE CHRISTIAN UNION


FROM THE PATRON’S DESK

VISION STATEMENT
Our vision is: Preparing God’s people for works of service (Ephesians 4:12a)

MISSION STATEMENT

The Christian Union exists: To assist students in the College come to a personal knowledge of Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour and help them mature in Christ and prepare them to take an active and positive role in the Church and Society.

MOTTO
Jesus Christ, of whom we are all witnesses (Acts 2:32)

STATEMENTS OF BELIEFS

We as the Christian Union live to uphold the Holy Scriptures (the Bible) as our Primary Guide in all our Faith undertakings.
The CU works under the National stewardship of the Kenya Students’ Christian Fellowship (KSCF), established and constituted in 1959 by the Kenya Registrar of Societies. As a CU we are therefore answerable to the KSCF and governed by the KSCF Constitution which encompasses the Statement of Beliefs enshrined in the KSCF Constitution as taught in the Holy Scriptures.

Being an interdenominational group, we bring together all Christian students in the College
from all Christian denominations represented.

LEADERSHIP
The CU is governed by a Committee of twenty one officials and is overseen by the Patron; guarding the interests of the CU at all times.

AIMS AND OBJECTIVES

Our aims and objectives are non-political. Our services are rendered to all students and by extension the college community and the outer society at large. 
We therefore seek to:
1.    Assist individual students come to a personal commitment to Jesus as Lord and Saviour and grow in the Christian Faith.
2.    Provide an interdenominational body by which individual Christians in the College may be linked.
3.    Join the Christian Church in its Missionary Outreach in the fulfilment of Our Lord’s Commission.
4.    Provide training in Christian leadership and service.

The CU encourages her members to:
1.    Grow to maturity in all aspects of life: spiritual, social, moral and academic to name but a few.
2.    Bear witness to those around them to the saving power of Jesus Christ through word and lifestyle.
3.    Form the habit of daily personal Bible reading and prayer.
4.    Have regular meetings for fellowship, teachings, prayer, and Bible Study.
5.    Be loyal and faithful to their churches without deviating from the essential truths of the Gospel.
6.    Become strong and useful members of the Society and to be actively concerned about integrity, justice, and reconciliation throughout the human society.

As an institution, we run a rather busy but productive programme across the terms of each academic year.
These include:
a.    Spiritual nourishment on Sundays and Saturdays.
b.    Intercessory prayer meetings touching all aspects of our wellbeing.
c.    Holding Weekend Challenges on topical areas of student interest.
d.    Holding sessions on family education for married students under the patronage of their leader Mrs Violet Cyan.
e.    Holding single men’s and single ladies fora on topical issues.
f.    Running of a Bible discipleship class.
g.    Holding environment days aimed at afforestation and general cleaning of our college compound.

MESSAGE FROM THE PATRON

You can’t have genuine friendships in life if you hide your true self. If you hide, then your friends will love what you do and not who you are! (Bishop TD Jakes).
It is easier to give things than self! Go for the unknown within you than cling to the false disguises (costumes/concealing outfits/masks) of the outer man.

When we fail to be what God wants us to be, we are simply allowing Satan to throw a blow at God.
Bible words are live (the Words that I speak to you are Spirit and are life) and therefore Bible thoughts are the most vital, creative, and positive (Eph 4:23) –God answers thoughts too!

Norman Vincent Peale said:
Mental health and successful living is attainable when we move away from past failures and mistakes and go forward without letting them be a weight on us (Phil 3:13-14)
Brothers, it is clear to me that I have not come to that knowledge; but one thing I do, letting go those things which are past, and stretching out to the things which are before,

WISDOM DROPLETS!
You are born to win!
a.    Pick the future against the past
b.    Focus on opportunity rather than problems.
c.    You are what you talk yourself into.
d.    Fear of failure makes you achieve nothing
e.    Regret is a waster of strength a destroyer of destiny.
f.    Know your self and love you!
g.    Never give in to giving up.
h.    You talk yourself into becoming.
i.    Don’t mind the people, mind your purpose.
j.    Look for your identity in things and the pain goes on.
k.    Speech will always change your position either way.
l.    Don’t trade your future for the present.

For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he
(Proverbs 23:7)

Our vision is: Preparing God’s people for works of service (Ephesians 4:12a)
