The universal Church’s overall mission is to reach out to the world as commissioned by our Lord Jesus Christ (Mathew 28: 18 – 20). For over 80 years now, St. Luke’s Pro-Cathedral Church, Kitale has come a long way in reaching out in the best known ways of communication through traditional means such as using messengers, writing letters, preaching and through word of mouth.
However, the world is growing in terms of technological advancement (IT), which has made communication of information easier and faster. For us at St. Luke’s this too is the best way to reach out smartly to the world.
Therefore, to move with the times and to face the test of time, St. Luke’s Church has created this website which, indeed will help spread the Good News of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ globally, in line with our vision and mission. This will help to communicate information to reach even more people.
A website helps to ease the strain and struggle of sending and receiving information. It enhances, promotes, empowers and provides quick provision of communication for church ministries such as pastoral care and counseling, preaching, teaching, information on development, mission and evangelism and many more.
Through this website, the church will also be in a position to receive information from around the globe. Similarly, we at St. Luke’s will also be able to reach out globally. As a progressive church, we are positively embracing IT to be able to inform and be informed for the Glory of God! Many thanks goes to the dedicated and broadly informed research that realized a firm and strong foundation upon which this website is built.
For this wonderful site, I wish to register my gratitude to the following: First, to God for giving us an opportunity to lead and guide His Church; The Bishop of Kitale Diocese, Rt. Rev. Stephen Kewasis Nyorsok for his prayerful support, encouragement and endorsement of the website; to the members of St. Luke’s Church for their encouragement, support and prayers they tirelessly offer; to the Parish Church Council (PCC); the church staff; and finally to the Communications Committee Team who labored many hours brainstorming and putting their ideas together as they analysed and prioritized ideas for our church website. I also thank Kenya Web Designers for their website development. God richly bless you all!
Once gain, to the Communications Committee Team – Messrs. Barnabas Omesa and Obando Ekesa – I say a BIG THANK YOU. You have done us proud!
To the church members of St. Luke’s, the work has just began and there’s no turning back. A new chapter of implementation is now on; let us move together. Your innovative ideas are welcomed!
It is my prayer that in line with our motto, we will all sail into deeper waters together. As a team, the church will be able to reach out to the world with the God News of our Lord, give hope to the hopeless and healing to the downhearted both physically and spiritually.
God bless you!
Rev Polycarp Kimeli Meger
