Oduor Mildred Akinyi | Dr. John Njoroge


Abstract: The purpose of the study was to establish the role of the church in promoting positive ethnicity among different ethnic groups in Nakuru Sub-County. The study was based on descriptive survey design. The target population included the clergy and church leaders. Purposive sampling was used to select a sample size of 81 respondents from 27 churches. Data was collected using questionnaires and analyzed both qualitatively and quantitatively with the aid of the Statistical Package for social sciences (SPSS). The findings were presented in figures and tables. The study concludes that peace-building and reconciliation activities were mainly used by the NCCK churches to promote positive ethnicity in Nakuru Sub-County. The study recommends that the church be actively involved in activities that promote positive ethnicity.
