Commencement 2017

These have been momentous days at ANU.

Much of last week, we said our official farewells to Prof. Leah Marangu. She has served with distinction for 21 years as the Vice-Chancellor of Africa Nazarene University. On November 1, Dr Stanley Bhebhe, Vice-Chancellor Elect, begins his tenure.

Hooding Ceremony and 20th graduation ceremony

On October 23, we celebrated a hooding ceremony in the School of Religion and Christian Ministry (SRCM). We had a total of 10 graduates (3 in the Bachelor’s program and 7 in the Master’s). We applaud a job well done by all!

Jefferson
I congratulate Mr Jefferson Mwangolo, outgoing Student Body President. Jefferson was a student in “Christian Beliefs” class, the general education course that I teach to many second and third year students. He earned his B.A. in marketing.

Please keep praying for Kenya and for us. 

Thank you for your prayers for Amy and me as we continue our missionary service at Africa Nazarene University. Like our University motto says, we believe that “What begins here, transforms the world.”

Thursday October 26 is the re-run of the invalidated August presidential election. Ask the Lord to visit his peace upon Kenya and that a clear outcome will emerge that will be widely accepted by citizens.
