The Unique Role of Grassroots Leaders
Grassroots church leaders in Nairobi carry elevated sociocultural and political standing in our society, and have a uniquely crucial and significant role in peacemaking. However, due to a lack of knowledge, skills, and expertise on peacemaking, our grassroots leaders do not often effectively play that role.
Even more significantly, our grassroots leaders lack the incarnational theology of peace that speaks to the the heart, mind, and hands of leaders to equip them for peacemaking. To the detriment of our people, the Church and Christian faith-based organizations often get caught in rivalry, competing with each other, rather than serving the community.
