The Chaplaincy department is committed to making the University a center of expression of Christian faith, piety and service. We do this by cultivating a spiritually formative environment for Kabarak University Community through Christian practices that involve us in God’s activity in the world. We uphold activities that draw people near to God such as worship, Bible study, prayer, mid-week fellowships, mission outreach and discipleship. Below is a highlight of the main programs:
At Kabarak University, we believe that communal worship is a God-given avenue of expressing our unity and appreciation of diversity as members of one family.
The chaplaincy department hosts weekly worship services for faculty, staff and students.
- Wednesdays 11.30AM – 12. 45 PM ( Main and Nakuru Campus)
- Sundays between 11.00AM – 12.30PM (University community)
Spiritual support and guidance
The chaplaincy is committed to fostering an environment of spiritual support for faculty, staff and students of Kabarak University. It is our conviction that spiritual formation best occurs in the context of deep community. The processes of spiritual support involve a relationship between those involved and the Holy Spirit. The ultimate goal of this is to grow people into a deep intimacy with God.
In both the Main and Nakuru Town Campuses, our two chaplains are available for prayer, confidential pastoral counseling, spiritual direction, exploration of scripture, and support for spiritual struggle.
Divine guidance and support is essential in the expression of faith, piety and service. The chaplaincy has put in place early morning devotional forums for university community. These are scheduled to take place at 6.00 am – 7.00 am daily. Additionally, a mid-week prayer fellowship takes place on Wednesdays between 5.00 pm to 5.45 pm.
