This made the FPFK Electoral Commission led by Chairperson Rev. Gabriel Riamet not to hold elections for them on Thursday during the last day of Wise Women Conference that had been going on at Moi Girls High School, Nairobi from Monday to Thursday, but only conducted elections for four Committee members. The conference guest speakers were Mrs Ayo and Mrs Anna Jackson Kalunzi both from Free Pentecostal Church of Tanzania (FPCT).

The other four members nominated unopposed were Naomi Maingi(Vice Chairperson), Beatrice Mathenge(Treasurer), Dorothy Binayo(Secretary) and Florence Wambui(Vice Secretary). The previous committee was elected into office in 2018 to serve for a period of five years. The four Committee members will be Roseline Masika who got 116 votes, Jane Kinyanjui (101) votes, Anne Yegon (92) and Racheal Nangari with 89 votes. For Roseline and Jane, they were re-elected. Speaking after receiving the certificates, Pastor Mayiani promised to continue with ensuring she delivers the projects that were initiated during their past regime that were affected by Covid-19 for the two years of 2020-2022. ” I would like to say that I am ready to serve once again. The Bible says I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. I look forward to work with Women Ministry, entire church and FPFK National Board to bring the difference,” said Pastor Mayiani. She added: I request you one thing, let us make prayers our daily thing. Pray for me to get wisdom to take this Women Ministry to another level.” She appreciated the National Board led by Presiding Bishop Joseph Munialo for their leadership and support to the Women Ministry.

Presiding Bishop Joseph Munialo challenged women to be humble, respect leaders and Pastors and be prayerful always. “For God to use you and take you to another level, you need to be humble and know that you cannot make it to the top on your own but with God’s enablement,” said Bishop Munialo, who was accompanied by his wife. He also encouraged women to ask God to give them a prayerful heart so that they can pray always, even as they remember to pray for the National Board to carry out its mandate successfully. “Wisdom is good and education without wisdom is useless. Be careful of what you say about leaders with your mouth because the Bible says you will be judged every word that comes out of your mouth and therefore respect leaders” he added.

General Secretary Bishop John Kitur thanked the partners including Linkoping from Sweden for their continued support to women activities in the church and entire FPFK Church. He said the National Board recognises the challenges women go through in the church and challenged them not to give up. “Do not lose hope, do not be discouraged because with prayers, we shall grow from those challenges to a higher level and become overcomers,” he said. He said the church has come up with a Women Inclusion project, which started in June this year, to empower women in church leadership positions to be trained to be leaders. He also thanked women for holding a successful three-days conference and thereafter conducting a free and fair election presided over by FPFK National Electoral Commission Chairman Rev. Gabriel Riamet.

FPFK National Treasurer Rev. Adam Turere said together with General Secretary, they are now signatories of Women Ministry account and can now be able to monitor how money is spend to avoid misuse and unnecessary debts. “We are now also able to budget for various ministries so that we have a financially healthy balanced church and avoid a situation whereby one side (Ministry) is doing well while the other is dying,” said Rev. Turere. He asked women to pray for other departments’ success, including upcoming men and youth conference in November and December respectively.

“Be assured that there is not a cent of your money that will be lost. The first priority was to save the church and its assets first from auction since we inherited an empty account, then start to see how to fund ministries to carry out their activities,” he said.

FPFK Electoral Commission Chairman Rev. Gabriel said the new Constitution of 2018 gives women more chances to run for various positions of leadership in the church and therefore encouraged women to pursue further education in preparation for leadership. “Go back to school and pursue higher education apart from the Certificates and Diplomas to Degrees and even PHDs and Doctorates because without education it will be hard for you to lead since these leadership positions require some higher level of education,” he said.
