Our curriculum was developed by seminary-degreed faculty based on the specific needs of Kenyan pastors in our target group.

The curriculum represent the five basic areas of doctrine:

  • Bibliology – seeing the Bible as our functional authority
  • Ecclesiology – aligning the church with biblical purposes
  • Pneumatology – releasing the Spirit’s energizing power
  • Soteriology – making the plan of redemption the mission of every disciple
  • Christology – gauging servant leadership and lifestyle on Jesus Christ.

The Training includes:

  • Residential Attendance
    • Eight two-week sessions over two calendar years
      • One session per quarter (so as not to interrupt students’ pastoral work in their home churches extensively)
      • Occasional two-four day retreats for supplementary training
    • Final two-week session is an off-site missional internship
  • Take-home Assignments and Projects
    • Assigned as follow-up per each course
    • To be completed at home with reports submitted at the following session
  • Supervisory contact and/or visits from staff between quarterly school sessions
