This will be achieved by focusing on, among others, investing in the institutional capacity of the diocese.

The Diocese is under the able stewardship of Bishop Julius Wanyoike who said that one of their main goals was to ensure that the diocese was self sustaining and was able to equip the christians with both spiritual and economically.

Bishop Wanyoike has announced his intent to vie for the seat of the head of ACK this May with an eye to succeed Archbishop Wabukala who retires in June this year.
