Organizational Structure
 
Over the years, AIC has been organized into five administrative councils: the Local Church Council, the Branch Church Council, the District Church Council, the Regional Church Council and the Central Church Council.
 
The Local Church Council, which is comprised of a chairman who normally should be the pastor in charge of the local church, and several elders, is responsible for reaching out to the lost, disciplining errant church members, and supervising the affairs and property of the local congregation.
 
The Branch Church Council is responsible for coordinating ministerial activities within a number of congregations in a given geographical area. This council is comprised of elected members from all the congregations represented.
 
The District Church Council enjoys a considerable degree of autonomy and is key within the structure of the AIC according to the current constitution. It is responsible for planning, implementing, and supervising the work of the church in a given district. It usually authorizes the establishment of local congregations and Branch Councils and also appoints and arranges for the financial support of pastors and preachers within the given district. This council is formed by elected members from various Branch Councils within the district, and its chairman is normally an ordained pastor of the church.
 
The Regional Church Council gives oversight to ministerial activities in the several District Church Councils that together form the Regional Church Council. The Regional Church Council members are drawn from each of the District Church Councils and the chairman is also an ordained pastor of the church.
 
Finally, the Central Church Council is comprised of the bishop, assistant bishop, administrative secretary, the chairmen, secretaries, treasurers of all the Regional Church Councils, and all national departmental heads.
 
This council supervises the work of the church in Kenya. It is the overall administrative council which oversees the running of AIC in all matters of faith and practice.
 
However, some constitutional amendments were made and effected by the Central Church Council meeting on 8th October, 2008.   These amendments brought changes to the Administration of the Africa Inland Church Kenya in that the office of the bishop of AIC Kenya changed to the office of the Presiding Bishop, the office of the assistant bishop changed to the office of the Deputy Presiding Bishop, Area Church Councils with Area Church Council Bishops among other officials were formed, and the Branch Church Council level was deleted.
 
Arising from the above changes, the registered officials of the Africa Inland Church Kenya, the Area Church Councils, the Bishops of ACCs, and the Organisational
 
Structure of the Church are as follows:-
