ACKNOWLEDMENTS

vI first take this opportunity to thank the Almighty God for gracing me to be part of Moi University Christian Union and extending His blessing to allow me serve in the Executive Committee as the Media Chairperson.

vI never knew or thought in my life that I will ever come to serve in any position in Campus.

vMy experience in this position has been a new encounter with God and I have been growing from one level of grace to the next. It was a wonderful experience of making many friends and whenever we met for fellowships, meetings and any other activity, I always learnt a lot and enjoyed a lot from both leaders and CU members.

vI got a chance to meet great servants of God who came to minister and also meeting the leadership of Moi University including Prof. Paul Gigambo Okumu who challenged me that, ''when you learn to do, also learn to undo.'' and ‘‘if you have to drive, use more breaks than speed.'' And this is what has been leading me through.

vI also take this opportunity to also thank all MUCU-MC members for accepting me to be amongst your Leadership. I REALLY SALUTE YOUR SUPPORT. And I appeal to those that we wronged in various ways including not editing their photos in time, failure to record their programs that members were eager to watch, not publishing your articles in time to forgive us and always doors are open to give you the service that you need.

vTo my fellow Executive Committee, I pass my sincere gratitude for being my prayer partners and very supportive in seeing the growth of the church and more specifically Media Family.

vTo Media Family, through the wonderful committee I served with, I lack the words to describe your support and commitment to the service but I will only leave you with one verse from the book of Deuteronomy 28:12 that says, “The lord will open to you his good treasury, the heavens, to give the rain to your land in its season and to bless all the works of your hands. And you shall lend too many nations, but you shall not borrow.”

vLastly, to my interim Joseph Gatimu, I deeply appreciate the kind of support you gave me during my service and also accepting to be used by God to serve as the interim media chairperson. I salute you sir for the great work you have done in media.

MY RESPONSEBILITIES;

  1. Shall be the link between the executive committee and the media committee.
  2. Chair media committee meetings.
  3. Handle the accommodation or Hospitality requirements of the speaker(s).
  4. Maintaining the database of all CU members and associates.
  5. Overseeing all Media family activities

CHALLENGES

vFamiliarizing myself with my leadership was a challenge. In some instances my friends could tell me “kumbuka wewe ni exec”

vGetting courage to always stand in front of people was a great challenge especially when I could be told to address the congregation.

vAt one point it became difficult for me balancing my time having class work and ministry at hand..

vMost of media family leaders were also leaders in other ministries and at e-teem level hence making them not to perform adequately to the tasks and have a problem in balancing the two thus some of the things remain hanging.

vThere were many people in need of my attention, prayer, advice and encouragements but I did not get a chance to attend to them all.

vDuring rainy season it was difficult for me to go for the speaker and take them to the guestroom to rest after they have ministered due to the “matopeni estate at stage on your way to the guestroom and maybe the speaker is a “Nairobian.”

vAlso some speakers could come with many friends and accommodating all of them was a challenge since we have one guestroom that can accommodate only two people.

vScarcity of committed members sometimes led to delay of performance of responsibilities especially in Editorial, camera and photography mostly in editing part and website.

ACHIEVEMENTS

  • The greatest achievements I am proud of, is the number of students who got transformed through media family and their lives taking a turn around after being baptized and disciple.
  • We had successful fellowships and prayer meeting that were very essential avenues for our member’s spiritual growth. Our fellowships are normally on every Thursday from 6:30pm – 8:00pm in NCT 2 and Prayer and fasting day on every Wednesday conclusion in LT 1.
  • Unlike in the past, we had many getting the technical skills needed in serving in our various ministries. This led to many getting skills on photography and video editing, basic and complex editorial skills, operating a projector, hosting shows in the radio station, setting up the back drapes, website skills and many other skills.
  • Proper record keeping of MUCU-MC church activities and sermons which is very crucial for the history of the church.
  • Purchase of a new camera battery and we managed to repair the projection desk that was in bad condition.
  • I was able to perform my duties as outlined by our church constitution and media practices.
  • We successfully held media meeting together with media family ministry leaders that were aimed at seeing our ministerial functions successful.

                                                              

RECOMMENDATIONS

  1. There is need for proper orientation for the incoming leaders in all positions in the church without forgetting the evangelistic teams.
  2. Prayers and bible reading needs to be taken seriously by all those desiring to serve God diligently and faithfully.
  3. Fellowships needs to be emphasized to all members and should be properly organized and operate within set timeline.
  4. Christian Union should work hand in hand with school leadership and students governing council as well to achieve harmony, peace and achievement of university mission and vision.
  5. To the incoming executive committee, there is need to invest more in media family to help achieve our goals.
  6. Proper and secure back up system is needed in helping store all our recorded activities and sermons, photos, written articles, magazines and bulletins for proper custody of the church’s history.
  7. To achieve efficiency and commitment by leaders in the service there is need for those elected to serve in media family not be allowed to serve in any other ministry so as to help them concentrate all their focus and attention to their roles since they need more of the time in editing videos recorded during the sermon, editing of articles presented by church members, preparing a magazine, etc. and also balance in ministry and study.
  8. Bonding moments should be emphasized to members and leaders stimulate growth and fellowship.
  9. SAUTI YA THAO SPEARHEADING COMMITTEE to take into consideration media budget, so as to enable smooth running of the media activities.

IN CONCLUSION

I would pray that the incoming media chairperson KELVIN OGADA Work very close with media ministry leaders and members and ensure that excellence and commitment is achieved in all the media ministry activities. Also key attention to delegation of duties by all leaders will help achieve excellence and balance in both academics and ministry. My word to you is from the book of Isaiah 11:2 “and the spirit of the Lord shall rest upon you, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and the fear of the Lord.” And to media family members, the greatest favor you can do for me is to respect, support and hears from him the incoming media chair as you did for me.

In summary, church, indeed it is by God’s love and grace those we we’re able to stand. Even as we’ll be commencing a new spiritual year, let’s continue praying and seeking God’s guidance every time as we give ourselves to the service.

And as our Media Theme verse, ROMANS 12:11 enunciates: Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the LORD.

I will leave you with four phrases;

  1. 1. Don't wait to be cheered but cheer up to yourself.
  2. 2. Definition of happiness is you.
  3. 3. Be your own winner, winner always plan to be winners in their life.
  4. 4.According to psychology, personality of a leader, is that a leader requires…to wear the image of abundance and walk full of abundance

BE BLESSED.

REPORT OF THE INTERIM MEDIA CHAIR FOR THE SPIRITUAL YEAR 2022 – SEPTEMBER-OCTOBER

INTRODUCTION

Praise be to God our Father, I am grateful to God for the chance and opportunity to serve Him for this short period, to Him be all the glory and honor. I greatly thank the Lord for the Grace and Devine Enablement to serve Him in this capacity at such an ordained season. My gratitude goes to the substantive Media Chair Kelvin Walucho for his endless support in the ministry. A lot of thanks to the Media Committee for the great support and sacrifice during this period when most committee members were out of session, may the Lord graciously bless them. To the executive committee we served with, I’m most grateful for the support and serving the Lord together, may the Lord bless you. Not forgetting the media family, they have been a blessing to work with, fellowship together and serve together, may the Lord bless and increase them.

ACHIEVEMENTS

By the grace of God we have been able to achieve the following:

  1. We have been able to have the media fellowships without a failure since the semester begun. Together with the Media Committee, we managed to partially come up with semester program for Media Family fellowship and trainings.
  2. With the help of discipleship docket we managed to collect the first years data and have it in files.
  3. With the help of media committee we managed to feature MUCU events in posters for mobilization, make video recording and photography featuring MUCU events and services and uploading in various our various platforms.
  4. We managed to come up with a report on the approximate monetary value of media assets; this will help in auditing and in future projection of Media Budget.
  5. We also managed to come up with a proposed media budget and handed to the Sauti ya Thao Committee; the proposed budget will greatly improve on and upgrade the media assets.
  6. Together with the media committee we managed to come up with media night program which will take place the next Friday on 21st October 2022.
  7. By the help of God various dockets has been running well, radio show – gospel hour has been running well, with timely topics being addressed. Publicity and Projection has been well also, and managed to organize for a cleaning for backdrops and was a success. Camera and Photography has been running well featuring most of the MUCU services. Editorial and website ministries have also been running well as per the help of God, to God be the glory.

CHALLENGES

  1. The short period has been challenging especially because most of Media Committee members has been out of session, there has therefore been much workload to the media committee members in session ensuring the success of various ministries outside their dockets.
  2. It was a bit challenging to catch up with the docket requirements and serving in the exec since there was no induction when getting into the interimming period.

RECOMMENDATIONS

  1. Consider inducting the interim committee members just like the substantive committee while getting into the office. This will help in the awareness and smooth running of the docket without much straining.
  2. When some of the ministry leaders are out of session, consider looking for other ministry leaders to interim the substantive leaders. This will help share responsibilities and avoid burnout to few individuals.
  3. When planning for semester program, please avoid major activities around the transition period for smooth running and effectiveness.
  4. Consider inductive training of ministry leaders once they assume office to carry on the ministry leadership with effectiveness, understanding, and more so handle various equipment with much care.

CONCLUSION

It has been a great honor to serve the Lord in this capacity and for this period, I am grateful to God for the opportunity to serve Him. In this short period God has been working on me and I have been able to develop 3Cs which are Character, Content and Competence that today I greatly treasure. Thanks be unto God, all the support system He provided in the ministry, and all friends in MUCU.

To the incoming media chair – Kelvin Ogada, congratulations, may the Lord lead you throughout this season, He saw the end from the beginning and has therefore made everything you will need at such a time available a long time ago. May The Lord strengthen you in the inner man (Ephesian 3:16) to undertake this task, and you and lead you throughout this season to accomplish His will.

GOD BLESS MUCU!!

REPORT FOR EDITORIAL MINISTRY FOR THE SPTIRITUAL YEAR 2022

Introduction

This far the Lord has helped us, in Him we have found strength, grace and divine enablement to serve well for this season (spiritual year 2022). To Him be all the glory and honor. It has taken His hand and love for us to reach this far with His work that He had entrusted us with. May the Lord continue strengthening and guiding us in His work as He leads and humble us. Our heartfelt gratitude to media committee for the endless support throughout the period that helped co-work in various dockets and ensured no burnout in the service. Not to forget the media family members and discipleship team who have been so instrumental and helpful in ensuring the success of this ministry, May the Lord bless them.

Duties and Responsibilities

Editorial Ministry is Ministry under Media Family in MUCU whose main obligations are: publishing Christian Articles and pinning them on the various notice boards around the campus as well as uploading them to the MUCU website in liaison with website ministry leaders. The Ministry is also responsible for production of posters featuring MUCU events, coming up with and editing devotions as frequent as possible as well as publication of the campus glory magazine.

Achievements

By the grace of God and help of media committee and MUCU members we were able to achieve the following:

  1. Publish several articles and shared soft copies in online platforms including MUCU app and website, some we printed and posted in various notice boards, to God be the glory. Among the articles published include:

     Sacrificial love by Augustine Luyingwa

     Rethinking the unreached by Grace Waithira

     Jesus a man for All by Josephine Ngeloni

     The heart of the matter by Jimnah Chege

     The word of God by Edwin Ndegwa

     The Myth of Inherited salvation by Muya Njoroge

     Eneza Amani Campaign Articles

     A Wounded Soldier is Still A Soldier by Jimnah Chege

     True Wisdom by Frank Mungai

     Wisdom in Small Things by Kennedy Iningu, among others.

-        Creating awareness concerning editorial ministry and article writing during our meetings and retreats and encouraging church members, ministry members and the committee to write articles and they responded positively. This led to publishing of as many articles as possible at least two every week without skipping for the growth of the church members spiritually.

-        Through the awareness, many of the church members were able to join the ministry after which we made follow ups through calls and texts and ensured they are in the editorial WhatsApp platform.

  1. In Liaison with Camera and photography ministry and the entire media committee we were able be consistently and always create posters featuring MUCU events and programs to sensitize the CU members to be partakers.
  2. By the grace of God we were also able liaise with camera and photography ministry and edit MUCU ministrations recorded and upload in the MUCU YouTube channel as the Lord helped us.

Challenges

  1. Pressure from some of the church members who wanted their articles to be published as first as possible and the way they are without adding or subtracting anything.
  2. Failure to publish some articles since it reached a point that they were so many hence some could end up not being read due to overload. This also brought up some concerns from the CU member who wanted their articles published but were not. This was because some of the articles were substandard and not fit for sharing or not meeting the criterion described in the editorial clause.
  3. At some point there was inconsistency in article writing from the church, sometimes we had to intentionally request some people to write articles.
  4. Inconsistency in coming up with daily devotions.
  5. Workload at some point especially when the colleague was out of session, (in June-August Jose was out of session and Sep-Oct Shalom was out of session), it was a challenging season especially with striking the balance with course work.

Recommendations

  1. Encourage consistency in articles writing starting from ministry leaders, media committee, and ministry members to church members as well as creating awareness of the ministry and article writing. This will help to publish at least twice a week.
  2. Organizing for trainings frequently for the ministry members to ensure that they can also publish articles in order to assist editorial mum and dad to reduce workload.
  3. Make an inductive training to ministry members and church members of what is expected while writing the articles. This will help avoid writing content that is not fit and some articles not published.
  4. In case the ministry leader is out of session consider having an interim to stand in for him/her to avoid burnout and or neglecting other important chores.
  5. Look for ways to come up with daily devotions and keep the consistency. A suggestion would be to encourage all ministry leaders starting with media committee and discipleship to write on weekly basis to always ensure there is consistency.

- There could be a central theme for every week to give people a guideline, especially if it can align with the topic on Sunday.

  1. Keep following on ministry member and engaging them in publication and posting of articles so that there can be consistent growth from their side as well.
  2. Consider coming up with a booklet titled Campus glory, featuring various articles written during that season. It can include some poems, shairi or Swahili articles, composed songs or ministration by MUCU members
  3. Always Liaise with discipleship to ensure the content of articles being shared is fit for the CU and meets the criterion outlined in editorial clause in MUCU Media Policies.

Conclusion

In conclusion, it has been a great honor to serve the Lord in this ministry under MUCU, serving together in editorial has really helped us to learn a lot as we serve the Lord in the ministry. We thank God for teaching us to be humble, for leading us always and in deed He is our Ebenezer. To the incoming editorial dad and mum it our prayer that the Lord will always lead you to do His will for the next season.

GOD BLESS YOU!!

CHALLENGES

  1. Most of the church (MUCU-MC) members are still not to the fully awareness the existence of Radio & TV shows.

Working with other dockets/ministries to share any information/content through the media platforms for the edification of the church.

Achievements

  1. We frequently updated the MUCU MC online platforms, circulated event posters for sensitization and mobilization of members on MUCU programs.
  2. Integrated the app into several MUCU MC programs such as using it for event registrations, sharing devotionals and announcements
  3. We co-worked with the Editorial ministry to publish articles in the website as well as the mobile app.
  4. We also co-worked with the discipleship docket to work on devotionals for the app.

Challenges

  1. Inadequate knowledge on various technical aspects of certain parts of the website administration made it hard to perform some updates or operations
  2. Making updates to the app was rather challenging due to the sophisticated tools and processes involved, this made making changes to the app slow.
  3. A low number of active users and followers in our online platforms

Recommendations

  1. Training on website administration in order to equip the leaders with all the necessary skills required to effectively manage the website. This can be done through video tutorials or written documentation explaining how to perform various tasks.
  2. Creating tools to simplify the process of making updates to the app – We are currently working on a website that will make creating updates in the app fast and easy and also more convenient. The website will be deployed as soon as it is through and proper training will be done to help the leaders get familiar with it.
  3. More mobilization on MUCU MC online platforms, especially on the app, in order to strengthen our online presence and reach more people using these platforms
  4. Coming up with ways in which the app can be adopted more increasingly in church programs in order to encourage its use, and also improve on convenience and communication where necessary.

Justification | Explanations

Media Laptop:

The media laptop has degraded substantially with time, even though it still serves, it has been a big challenge to use it due to the many challenges. Some of the challenges with our current pc is the Battery which does not function, the charging system has a problem and therefore the charger has to be placed strategically for stable connection. The biggest challenge and need to upgrade is because of the properties, our current pc has low specifications i.e. 2gb ram and low processing speed which limits its operations such as video editing. The PC sometimes fails in the middle of the service i.e. projection software(easy worship) crashes or the pc hangs, and therefore there need urgent need to have another pc.

The proposed laptop has good specifications (optimum) and capacity to handle heavy software for media operations. Such operations are video editing using different softwares. The pc can also be used across the media ministries for various uses of.

Camera Stand

The camera stand proposed, though expensive it is the best generic stand we can get that will last long. From history, there has been many stands bought almost every year but they do not last because they are week. Currently there is no stand that can be used with the camera during video shooting and featuring MUCU events. There fi therefore need to purchase another stand that is strong and will last. The suggested stand is the optimum stand that can last.

Camera

Our camera has been degrading with time, the camera was bought before 2016, though it has been working well, it may need some repairs that will help keep operating well. We would like though to upgrade and get a much better camera that will shoot more quality videos and take much better photos. The least we can get is as suggested in the proposal.

Lapel Microphone

The microphone will help the speaker during ministration to geta more clearer audio. It will also help in getting the audio that is more clear for editing.

Backdrops and Decoration Ribbons

The proposed backdrops will help attain a full set of the backdrops of that color which will enable publicity to use these backdrops while complementing each other and without color crashing. The ribbons are cheap and improve greatly on the decorations.

The average cost of backdrops is = 300/m; for a 3x6 piece = 6*300 = Ksh. 1,800

The proposed budget for backdrops has used this cost for price estimation.

Second Projection Screen

The second projection screen is necessary in that it will help us to be using two projectors during our services.

USB Splitter and Stereo Mini Cable/HDMI

This will help in connecting to the second projection screen. 10m is the minimum, but the length can be increased with an average cost of 300/m. the recommended that can work satisfactorily I 10m @Ksh. 3,000.00.

Lapel Mic and headset

These assets will greatly help in the operations of the Gospel Hour Show in MU FM Radio.

Secretary Laptop

The Secretary Laptop is necessary and will help the secretary in typing of minutes and other CU activities, such as discipleship and bible study dockets at some point. The proposed pc is optimum for such operations and is highly recommended.
