This paper discusses the nature of theological education in Africa, which, for the most part, has been along denominational lines designed to create little empires for the churches at the expense of others. The argument of this article is that in the twenty-first century the Church in Africa must seek new models of theological education. As we live in a global village in practically all aspects of life, it has become imperative that theological education be pushed beyond denominational lines and confessional ideologies to the point at which it addresses the problems and needs of humanity as a whole.
