Foreword from the moderator

It is with great joy that I present this Strategic Plan for the year 2020-2024. The need for Strategic planning cannot be overemphasized in the 21st Century. The Presbytery is in the process of implementing the Bench marking & Appraisal guidelines as directed by the General Assembly. It was then necessary that the process of SP formulation, which had already started, be speeded up so that both documents can complement each other to enhance good performance of our Presbytery.

Strategic planning is also found in the Scripture. We see clearly in Scripture that Moses was a Strategic thinker. Jethro observed that Moses was overwhelmed with the burdens of leadership and shared with him a God-given plan – a strategy. Strategy should be a team effort. In Proverbs 15:22, Solomon says “Plans fail for lack of counsel, but with many advisers they succeed” this is the route we wish to take as a Presbytery.

This Strategic Plan will help the Presbytery in gauging where we are and guide us into the future. The Strengths-Weaknesses-Opportunities-Threats (SWOT) have been analysed. The Strengths and Weaknesses will showcase the areas of our immediate focus and allow the Strategic Plan to guide the Presbytery to carry out a thorough self-examination on our goals while Threats and Opportunities, shall be given adequate attention. This Strategic Plan will help the presbytery to focus on her Strengths and allocate resources on important and high-priority activities rather than on the routine and day-to-day activities. It will help us to reallocate resources from non-priority to priority sectors.

This Strategic Plan will help us adjust and adapt to the changing dynamic environment and help us as a Church to address the relevant issues in our environment. It will guide our Parishes towards our organisational goals. It will unify all our activities and efforts towards our long-term goals. It will guide our Parishes to be dynamic and align their mandate to the Presbytery Vision. It will be a driver to the Parishes’ strategic planning, direction and projection in realizing their spiritual growth in line with our established 5 Pillars of our faith. It will uplift us in growth and development in margins greater than the projected 10% per year in all the spheres.

I firmly believe that the implementation of this Strategic Plan will catapult the Nairobi East Presbytery to the pinnacle of our Church. I call upon our Presbytery, all our twelve Parishes and our Congregations to work together to ensure that the takeaways from this Strategic Plan are implemented to the full, to God’s glory and honor.

Executive Summary

The ultimate goal of this Strategic Plan is to align our Vision and Mission to our resources and the operations within ourselves, Parishes and our Congregations.

We have created 8 chapters to guide us: Institutional framework, Strategic Direction, Governance & operations, Strategic Objectives, Situational & stakeholder analysis, implementation framework, M&E framework & strategies and the financials.

The strategy will guide our Performance within the next 5 years. The Executers are the Presbytery and our Parishes with interface to their local SP plans roll out as stipulated in the M&E matrix.

Situational Analysis

In order to achieve the set objectives, we have analyzed our Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats. We will take advantage of our strengths and address the identified weaknesses. We will also take the necessary measures to overcome the threats. We have also undertaken a stakeholder analysis to ensure meaningful and fruitful engagement with our stakeholders.


The governance and management structure will ensure transparency and accountability during the implementation of this strategy. The team members will bring on board the necessary skills and competencies. Training programmes will also be an integral part of this strategy to ensure that all team members are adequately equipped to execute their mandate.


Finally, the Monitoring and Evaluation framework will ensure continuous review of the implementation process. Implementation will be monitored through narrative as well as financial reports. Progress review will provide opportunity to make timely decisions on issues affecting implementation.

We believe that God has great plans for us and so the implementation of this strategy will be a success, to the glory of His name.

The Presbytery is currently supporting 170 children at the Presbyterian Educational Centre (PEC) based in Soweto, starting from baby class to class 3. The current PEC establishment can only accommodate a maximum of 200 children because space is limited. It also lacks other critical facilities like libraries, a computer lab and playing field. The plan is to develop a boarding school on the Presbytery’s property to accommodate the upper school (Class 5-8).
