The purpose of Communication Department is to pass information to the people on their concerns, to maintain the stability and identity of the church, and also to change people’s behavior in to their desirable direction of Gods ways. It also mirrors the vision and mission of the Church.
Communications Department was conceived from the Biblical context in Mathew 28:19-20 and it operates from it.
Communications Department was established in 1994 by a resolution of the 1994 Annual Conference which was held at Kaaga Girls High School, Meru.
Mr. John Muriungi was appointed as the 1st Communication Coordinator in 1995. Later on in 2013 Emma Mueni succeeded him.
The department maintains the image of Methodist Church in Kenya, including all MCK written, oral and visual communication.
Communication department has been managing the MCK website and recently it opened a Facebook fan page and YouTube channel which helps in communicating with people from over the world.
The department also helps in enhancing good relationship of the MCK and the Media making sure that they have a positive coverage.
It has also been recording video clips of some of the Church’s key activities, including Annual Conferences, ordination of ministers and induction of bishops. This material are available for research purposes and forms part of our archival work.
The department has been responsible for press liaison, public relations, writing projects, representation of the Church to various meetings including those of the Kenya Church, and special duties assigned from time to time by the Presiding Bishop.
