Established in 1957, the Main Campus Christian Union (MCCU) has been committed to spiritual nourishment of students within the University of Nairobi Main Campus as well as reaching out to the entire nation through missions. Founded under four pillars; missions; evangelism; discipleship and leadership development, scores of generations have not only been positively impacted but also influenced to become holistic and responsible citizens of Kenya and the rest of the world.
Our core values remain to be; Godliness; Integrity; Unity and Excellence.
Our vision; to be a congregation of Christ like believers, ministering as a family in love to God and to fellow men.
Our mission; to equip every member of the Union to Christ-likeness for effective Christian life and to reach every student in the Main Campus of the University of Nairobi for Christ.
MCCU; where character is shaped, discipline inculcated, friendship built and leadership developed; the place where memories unending are made, talents exploited and foundations developed for future generations. We all have a story to tell about experiences in and with MCCU.
