Mukhanyo continues to develop programmes to equip tent-making pastors and Christian teachers. At present, theological students have the opportunity to be both preachers and teachers – an effective form of tent-making ministry. In the past few years, four new education modules have been compiled, tested and refined, and made available to theological students.
Mukhanyo is blessed again this year with a roster of highly qualified visiting professors. We also welcome several more lecturers, both full-time and part-time, to the Mukhanyo team.
Many Reasons for Thanksgiving
Mukhanyo is grateful for the many new student registrations at the start of the 2023 academic year. In a time like the present with increasing poverty, prospective students and their sponsors find it difficult to study at a private, unsubsidised college such as Mukhanyo, compared to students registering at public tertiary institutions where they are heavily assisted with state funding.
Visiting Professors in 2023
Most modules are taught at our Campuses and Centres as weekly classes during two semesters annually. But sometimes Mukhanyo invites visiting professors to present intensive modules.
The following intensive modules are scheduled for 2023:
Overhauling and Extending all Learning Material
It started some four years ago as a project to improve the modules on offer by Mukhanyo. But now it has developed into the largest project ever undertaken, as well as the beginning of a continuous cycle of updating and extending the programmes and their modules.
Biblical Worldview Course
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.
