BRIEF HISTORY ABOUT KSCF
Kenya Students’ Christian Fellowship (KSCF) is an inter-denominational, non-political organization registered with the Registrar of Societies in 1959. It is solely Kenyan in origin and is a national movement of Christian students in high schools and colleges who normally operate through Christian Unions. As a national organization it seeks to support the spiritual life of students in secondary schools and colleges by encouraging formation and growth of Christian Unions. KSCF has an Associates arm of mature Christian youth workers that are organized in teams spread throughout the country.
Since its registration in 1959, KSCF has grown in leaps and bounds to the point that there are over 4000 schools covered in one way or another, 160 Associates teams operational in different areas and currently organized into 17 regions. KSCF is in 45 counties covering most parts of Kenya. Most activities are organized at the regional as well as the counties with end of year camps held at least once a year. A National convention is held once a year and is hosted on a rotational basis by the various regions.
The formation of KSCF dates back to the early 1950’s. Following prayer and deliberation in 1957, the founders decided to name the union of student fellowships - 'The Kenya Students Christian Fellowship (KSCF)' - and on 1/2/1958 while at Kapsabet School, a national steering committee was elected which later sat and wrote a draft constitution and planned inaugural conference at Thogoto High. On April, 19th 1958 all present unanimously endorsed the Formation of KSCF leading to its Legal registration on 16th October, 1959 with the Registrar of Societies.
