Our Work

Transforming Leaders by Combining Biblical Training with Practical Solutions

Our work is primarily a ministry of training, discipleship, and mindset transformation for Christian leaders, where a biblical worldview is the central theme integrated into a variety of creation care topics and practical solutions. 

A typical training conducted by CCK involves three elements:

  • A scientific review of the environmental issue (or issues) at hand.
  • A clear review of biblical principles highlighting why Christians should be actively involved.
  • A clear review of practical solutions.

Training events vary from a few hours, a full day, and include 3 day conferences, depending on the needs of a particular group or audience.  For church and community leaders from across Kenya and from different countries in East Africa, week long Creation Care and Farming God’s Way conferences are normally held five times a year starting on Tuesday and ending on Friday.

Transforming Local People with Extension Outreach and Practical Solutions

Our work with local communities surrounding Kijabe is also a ministry of training, discipleship, and mindset transformation, where a biblical worldview is the central theme integrated into our extension outreach efforts.  Our team of extension educators makes regular follow-up visits with individuals, community groups, and schools who are implementing creation care solutions such as tree planting, Farming God’s Way, and women learning to use Fire-less cookers.

Historically, poverty alleviation and “development” efforts in these communities have focused on the provision of monetary or material gifts, which has led to a growing sense of dependency upon outsiders.  This has often crippled the incentives of local people to discover solutions to their own problems with their own resources, bringing more harm than good. 

CCK seeks to combat the dependency syndrome by recognizing that local people do have unique skills, talents, and resources.  Our outreach efforts do not involve providing handouts or monetary incentives.  Instead, we focus on offering spiritual training, technical assistance, and regular encouragement through follow-up visits to those seeking to improve their community through various creation care solutions.

Multiplying Quality Trainers to Spread the Vision

The purpose of CCK’s Accreditation Program is to identify those whom God has called to be servant leaders and to multiply the number of highly qualified Christian trainers who effectively combine creation care with the Gospel.  Our goal is to mentor, develop, and encourage these candidates towards godliness and excellence in their training capabilities. 

We want to ensure that creation care trainings are Christ-centered, biblically robust, and scientifically sound, helping to maximize both spiritual transformation of the inner person and physical transformation of landscapes.

We also want this vision to be spread more quickly across Africa, helping to improve the witness of the Church, to combat dependency, and to maximize the benefits that creation care can have upon the poor and upon future generations.
