Bumula Distance College in Kenya facilitates the Mukhanyo Diploma in Theology. This distance group has 17 pastors taking on serious theological study, according to Pastor Eric Ngala.
On 8 April an open day was held and students showed visitors around the Bumalo library, ICT and material, including Mukhanyo’s study material. The college is also involved in the training of teachers and farmers. The main speech by Pastor Kefa Nyenda inspired students and visitors.
It is claimed that approx. 80% of preachers in Kenya have not had any theological training. This is not likely to be much different in most African countries. Mukhanyo hopes, God willing, to be able to contribute in changing this by providing distance appropriate and contextualised study. Pastor Ngala hopes to be able to attend the Bible College Consultation on 20-22 June in Pretoria. The theme will be “Christian ethics for biblical teaching in Africa.”
