Does sticking nuts to a tree make it a nut tree? Or does tying lemons to its branches make it a lemon tree? In the same way, practising good moral habits doesn’t make one a Christian. It has to come from within – from the heart of a person who can truly testify that he belongs to Christ and becomes a new creation.
This is how lecturer Jacques Malan of Mukhanyo started the teaching on Saturday 20 August at a seminar held at the KwaMhlanga campus. This seminar was the second entitled: Christian Character. It was based on one of the modules of Mukhanyo’s FOCUS programme. The second speaker was Rev. Paul Mahlangu, also a Mukhanyo lecturer.
How Bible Colleges Should Serve the Church
“O God, please help transform Your churches and Bible colleges here in Africa, making them able and devoted to equipping church leaders to understand Your Word and to preach it faithfully, so that Your people in Africa will honour You and live according to Your will.”
This prayer was on the minds of the 120 delegates, representing some 40 Bible schools, at the end of the 11th annual Bible College Consultation. This event was hosted on 14-16 June 2022 by Mukhanyo and the Theological Education Association of Southern Africa.
Mukhanyo is “An academic institution with a missional heart!” For this reason, we also host day conferences to serve the spiritual needs of people in local churches and the community at large.
On Saturday 26 March 2022, a ladies’ conference was held at KwaMhlanga campus with the theme “Biblical Womanhood”. Corné Loots from Revive our Hearts South Africa was the main speaker. She spoke about “A woman’s identity in God”.
