This post is especially aimed at the freshmen who are joining Daystar University this September 2018 Semester. Perhaps you are interested in what Daystar University’s CU (for lack of a more appropriate short hand explanation) The Daystar Christian Fellowship is all about
Perhaps you have or would like to sign up to one of the 15 diverse and dynamic subcommittees of DCF Athi, or DCF Valley Road. Perhaps you haven’t quite figured out what your calling is in the mission field and want to have a look around before you settle in.
Whatever the case might be here are a small but activities, from a wide array, that come recommended for anyone who wants to get the full DCF experience, so to speak.
Prayers at Katoloni
Start your semester the right way! Every semester it is quite normal for DCF to organize a weekend of prayer and fasting at the Katoloni Prayer retreat in Machakos. This is not opportunity to get your spiritual antenna tuned. It is also an opportunity to connect with intercessors, missioners from both the students and staff that can get your prayer life kick started on a positive note.
If you are thinking that this is only applies to people who are talented in singing or playing musical instruments, then you are sadly mistaken. Though your typical DCF worship experience is mostly organized either by the Sing Africa of Worship team subcommittees, there are plenty of opportunities of the pulpit to serve in a Worship Experience. From ushering, to decor, to resource mobilization, and off course prayer. Worship experiences are an opportunity to glorify God.
If it hasn’t been mentioned to you several times before you read this, let me remind you that Daystar University is a Christian University. Part of that means being actively engaged in the 5 fold ministry of: the Apostolic, Prophecy, Evangelism, Pastoral Care and Teaching. Do it goes without saying, Daystar University does evangelism and we do it in a big way.

Several of the DCF sub committees you might consider joining are actively engaged in carrying out outreach missions all over Kenya, and in some cases to other nations in Africa. In addition to that as a fellowship the DCF normally organizes an Annual Mission where the entire school fraternity is encouraged to participate in taking the Good news to the people of Kenya.
In 2017, our annual mission took us to Vihiga County, Kenya
in Reach Mission
The DCF does not just take the message of the Gospel to outsiders, there are also in reach missions through which DCF and its partner ministries reaches in to our fellow students and the local community.
Teach Sunday School
Daystar Athi River campus does not exist in a vacuum. If you have a heart for children, or teaching, or even if you would like an opportunity to make a difference in the local community. Volunteering to teach in a Sunday school at one of the local churches is a wonderful opportunity to do so.
Let nobody kid you that the 5 things listed above amount the only things that DCF does in either Athi River or Valley Road. There are so many day today activities and events that you can get involved in. For instance, we have Discipleship and Fellowship programs to help you grow in the faith and character. And off course it goes without saying that all members of the Daystar Community are strongly encouraged to attend Chapels on Tuesday.
