EACC was formed two years ago to provide training for pastors in the underserved Tarime region of northwest Tanzania along the Kenyan border. Significant gospel advances in recent years have resulted in numerical growth for churches in this area, but EACC is the only institution of its kind providing in-depth pastoral training in the region. TLI teaches students in both the certificate (Swahili speaking) and diploma (English speaking) programs at EACC.
We are partnering with East Africa Christian College (EACC) in providing theological training for pastors in the Tarime region along the Tanzania-Kenya border. This newly opened school is strategically located in an area underserved by pastoral training ministries. Recent gospel advances make the need for equipping pastors especially urgent. We currently teach Swahili-speaking pastors (via interpreters) in a Certificate Program and in 2017 we anticipate teaching English-speaking pastors in the new Diploma Program. TLI has also been asked to teach a bi-annual conference for regional church leaders, which has been well-attended. Tanzania is a beautiful country, home of Mt. Kilimanjaro and the Serengeti National Park, which is located a few hours drive from EACC
