Uganda (Kampala) May 2017

African Renewal University, Uganda, Uganda May 5-21, 2017

The Holiday Term at Africa Renewal Christian College is a part of a 2-year Certificate Program for pastors, church leaders and lay-members of the church that desire to be equipped for ministry. The training attracts mature adults that are already serving in ministry and are unable to attend bible college full-time to due family, ministry and work commitments. This mature group of students provides a tremendous atmosphere for dialogue and debate as students learn how to apply God's word to their lives. 4 Courses to be taught: 1. Old Testament Message and Theology, 2. Christian Leadership, 3. Sermon Preparation and Delivery, 4. Introduction to Christian Missions

Follow along as teachers in the field offer their experiences as they share theological training with local church leaders.

May  18th,  2017Adult Learning in Africa

When you are teaching adult learners, you cannot be theoretical.  Adult learners bring their own experiences into the class and will steer class discussion into areas which they feel will meet the needs they are facing right now.  Usually that is a great sign, students who see how class material directly affects them are more motivated learners.  It can also contain dangers for the self-confident American teaching in Africa.  I don’t know what about my face suggests that I am an expert on handling the familial and social aftereffects of conversion in a polygamous marriage but this white man ain’t walk into a class with men who used to be in polygamous marriages and dictate the biblical response (though a reminder that divorce is also a sin and Christians/the church should also consider the long term wellbeing of wives and children only got me in a little trouble). 

 

And while I’m on the topic, I apologize to all Ugandans for my inadequate responses to generational curses, prophets in the church, and not having a strong opinion on “king” Ceaser Mulenga.
