The commissioning and the sending of the disciples of Jesus, sets the authority and the framework of all disciples thereafter who go out in His Name as He commands; “GO YE therefore and TEACH all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you; and lo! I am with you always even to the end of the world; Amen” (Matthew 28: 19-20).
It is in conformity and in the emphasis on the “GOING OUT” that PCEA Mukinyi, like any other Presbyterian Church of East Africa Congregation has the Evangelism Department.The above command is evidenced by the words of St. Paul to the Romans; “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? How shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach except they be sent? As it is written: How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the Gospel of peace and bring glad tidings of good things” (Romans 10: 13-15).
The Evangelism Department (Nendeni Board) is the outreaching arm of the Church both in its evangelistic emphasis through and beyond congregational jurisdiction. At PCEA Mukinyi Parish, the Evangelism Department has FIVE Arms namely:
1. Praise and Worship Team: This is the arm of the Evangelism Team which ensures that Praise and Worship is well facilitated within the Church Services and also during outreach activities such as crusades, conventions an mission. Currently there over 20 members in the Praise and Worship Team
