n Missionalia : Southern African Journal of Mission Studies - Integrating Suum-ngi theology of peace in Gindiri theological seminary curriculum in Nigeria - an African theological perspective

Volume 43, Issue 2
  • ISSN : 0256-9507



This article argues that Gindiri theological seminary in Nigeria has done little or nothing to include issues of peace in theological education for the pastors in Church of Christ in Nations (COCIN) of Nigeria. Consequently the Church of Christ in Nations seems to have failed to engage adequately in promoting peace among their members in the national search for peace and religious tolerance in Nigeria. The article further argues that the theological seminary which produces pastors and lay church leaders for pastoral ministry has a responsibility to equip pastors with necessary tools for responding to peace challenges facing the country. Therefore, the article advocates for the mainstreaming of theology of peace in the curriculum of Gindiri Theological Seminary.
