The Bible Society of Kenya continues to reach the Counties through her branches located in different regions in Kenya.
All the nine branches held their Annual General Meetings where members gathered to receive reports on the previous year’s performance as well as plans for the future. This branches are; Nyeri, Kisumu, Kericho, Meru, Kakamega, Vihiga, Bungoma, Machakos and Nairobi. During these AGM’s elections were done and new officials elected. These meetings precede the National Annual General Meeting which brings together all members to interact, know about the progress and future plans of the Society.
These branches have been actively involved in spreading the message about Bible Society of Kenya’s work at the grassroots as well as getting the community to participate in planned activities and events including; Bible Eagles Club fun day events, prayer breakfasts for leaders, Faith Comes by Hearing, African Biblical Leadership Initiative and recruitment of members.
The Society has reached out to the youth through the African Biblical Leadership Initiative which is a programme aimed at mentoring the youth in leadership and career development. The mentees ultimately become members of BSK which entitles them to participate in the various programmes conducted by the Society. This year the programme will be held in Kisumu, Nairobi and Nakuru Counties.
The Church Relations and Membership Recruitment Manager Rev. Canon William Matolo was present in all the Annual General Meetings. He lauded the branch members for being ambassadors of BSK mission and programmes to the Counties. Members were encouraged to continue recruiting more members so as to ensure vibrancy in the branches as well as increase involvement in BSK activities. Rev. Matolo encouraged members to continue praying and supporting Bible work, visit many Churches and share with them what BSK is doing so that they can participate in the same.
The General Secretary Mrs. Elizabeth Muriuki appreciates BSK branches and looks forward to launching the Nakuru branch this year. This will help to expand the branch network. Thanks to all BSK members for tirelessly supporting Bible work and enabling the Society to grow to greater heights!
