Strategy implementation is a key component of the strategic management process. There is a lot more effort and resources invested by organizations in the formulation process than the implementation and control of strategy. There are high failures rates reported which are attributable to failure in the strategy implementation. This study sought to establish the influence of senior management commitment on performance of church owned primary schools in Kiambu County. The study was anchored on two theories, the agency theory, and resource-based view theory. The study used a descriptive design. The study targeted 1 principal, 1 deputy principal and 1 church leader from all the 64 church-based primary schools operating within the county. The target population was therefore 192 respondents. The study used census method since the population was small. The researcher contracted research assistants to help in data collection using structured questionnaire that was tested to ensure it gave valid and reliable responses. The collected data was sorted and entered in SPSS and descriptive analysis and inferential statistics were conducted and the findings were presented in tables, charts and in discussions. The study established that senior management team empowered their employees in improving their performance and that their senior management team was committed in training and rewarding our employees for their service delivery. Based on the findings, the study concludes that senior management support has significant effect on performance of church owned institutions. Therefore, the study recommends that the senior management team of all church owned schools in Kenya should increase their commitment on implementation of the formulated strategies so as to enhance performance of their organizations.
