Message from the Dean
This faculty is committed to offering holistic theological education and training to a variety of people, including pastors, teachers, missionaries, lay leaders, faith-based organizations, bible studies teachers and those who want to further their vocation or carrier in the field of Theology. At PUC, we believe that theological education should not be viewed only as an academic exercise but also as a spiritual discipline. As a result, we combine academic rigour with spiritual formation. Thus, while we approach academic competence in theological education with all seriousness, we also give practical pastoral ministry and spirituality a priority.
At PUC, we offer Certificate in Theology and Church Administration, Bachelor of Arts in Theology and Mission as well as MA in Pentecostal Studies. Efforts are advanced to begin MA in Theology, MA Leadership and Administration as well as MPhil in Theology. The aim of PUC, FTM is to develop Christian leaders who are theologically sound, morally disciplined and spiritually empowered to serve the growing needs of contemporary Christian communities within African and global contexts.
Our Certificate in Theology and Church Administration programme is aimed at introducing students to basic Christian theology and church administration, whiles preparing and inspiring them for higher theological education.
At the first degree level, our programmes are mainly designed for people who want to improve their theological knowledge as well as develop their church leadership skills as Christian educators and ministers. Consequently, the programme seeks to afford students an experience of continuing education, which renews their personal lives of faith, develop their professional competence, and stimulate their continued growth in biblical and theological foundation for ministry and Christian leadership.
The following provides a summary of the objectives of our Master’s programmes: First, the MA programmes are designed as a preparatory programme for students who do not have an academic qualification in theology or religion, to gain essential training to pursue a higher research degree in theology or religion. Further, our Master’s programmes are designed to equip students to address spiritual, socio-economic and politico-cultural problems of society and confront the challenges of contemporary Christianity through teaching, research, pastoral leadership and consultancy. The programmes are designed with the aim of developing proactive, honest, faithful, loving, caring and praxis-oriented Christian leadership, that can promote individual and societal transformation through critical, creative, and analytical engagement with biblical principles and ideals.
The Faculty of Theology and Missions in PUC is unique in the sense that our programme structure is flexible since there are opportunities for students to undertake theological education by extension. These programmes are normally in modular forms and allow practising pastors, teachers, administrators and other workers to effectively combine education with work. We encourage you to contact us for further inquiries about our programmes.
