#1: Schools of prophets
In the time of the Old Testament there were schools of prophets. The Reformation was given a strong injection by John Calvin’s theological school or university in Geneva from which many hundreds of trained preachers spread the gospel all over Europe and beyond.
The famous Harvard College (1655), Yale College (1701) and the “Log College” (1726) were called “schools of the prophets.” They were witnesses of the gospel of Christ, speaking the Word of the Lord, and were empowered by the Holy Spirit. Many colleges in Africa are doing so today. But there is an urgent need for many more biblically-based colleges.
