MDIV - 2021
Pastor at Kabushi Evangelical church
What brought you to Carey?
What brought me at Carey was the quality of education offered, accreditation and the urge to further my education with a world renowned College with prospects of being exposed to what is happening in other contexts through coming into contact with international students. Knowing what is happening in the church globally has made me to grasp a true perspective of the challenges the church is going through and this has helped me to adjust in the way I practice pastoral theology outside the box in order to remain relevant.
What was your favourite aspect of your time at Carey?
I was very excited when I was availed an opportunity to study Biblical Hebrew, I have been in possession of a Hebrew Bible since 2008 but it was just gathering dust because I couldn’t read it. Now I am able to read my Hebrew Bible after studying Biblical Hebrew. That is a rare chance for many here in my African context.
What do you intend to do next?
Currently I am pursuing further studies with Carey while waiting for opportunities to teach at Colleges or universities to become available. Teaching at a college or university helps to have a great impact on the leadership of the church. My denomination has very few trained leaders and this has a negative impact on growth and maturity.
How has your degree helped you in your ministry?
The degree has helped me to earn recognition in many circles and I am getting many invitations to teach the youths and church leaders from the district and beyond.
