oa Missionalia : Southern African Journal of Mission Studies - Listening to the forgotten voice: Some views of AIC leaders on theological education

Volume 26, Issue 3
  • ISSN : 0256-9507



In many theological debates the voice of African Independent Church leaders have not been heard. This may result from the fact that the AICs were frowned upon and never taken seriously - this despite the fact that their rapid growth and influence in Christianity cannot be further ignored. This article attempts to examine the views of five selected AIC leaders on the subject of theological education. Initially a survey of the subject of theological education is provided. Thereafter the views of these leaders with regard to curriculum in theological education, theological educators and women in theological education are discussed. An analysis of their views within the context of the current debate is provided.
