No fewer than nine lecturers from with Mukhanyo family (past and present) contributed to a book published a few weeks ago, Reformed Mission in Southern Africa: The Way Forward”. Their contributions form part of Mukhanyo’s engagement with the latest thinking on mission in Africa.
Now Serving in South Sudan
One of the four South Sudanese students at Mukhanyo completed the BTh degree in theology last year and is now serving the Grace Reformed Church in Khor Williang, Juba. Deng Akol Garang studied for four years at Mukhanyo in KwaMhlanga, sponsored by the Fourth Presbyterian Church of Maryland, Washington.
An intensive Biblical Worldview module was presented at Mukhanyo’s Pretoria Campus in early January by Dr Morné Diedericks, a lecturer at Aros. The focus of the module was on a Biblical worldview in relation to Western worldviews within the African context. The module compared a Biblical worldview with the five major worldviews namely theism, naturalism, polytheism, pantheism, and modernism.
Mukhanyo is searching for an ICT administrator and a few other committed Christians to fill several open positions at the college.
God willing, 2022 will be a year when several initiatives at Mukhanyo come to fruition. After two years with many challenges, we hope this will be a year of ministry maturity:
This year’s Opening Ceremony took place 17 January 2022 at the KwaMhlanga Campus where Dr Anton Knoetze, pastor of the Dutch Reformed Church of Secunda, addressed the entire Mukhanyo staff. He emphasised the need to “preach the word; be ready in season and out of season, reprove, rebuke, and exhort, with complete patience and teaching” (2 Timothy 4:2).
