It’s an interdenominational college of around 250 students and specializes in Degree and Masters courses. Many students have benefited from the excellent programmes provided at TCNN and have subsequently make a significant contribution to growth and development of the Nigerian church.
Staff accepted for appointment at TCNN require a PhD, Masters or need to be working towards their doctorate.
Mission Africa currently provides an experienced librarian at the college.
Well trained leaders are an essential ingredient in any healthy church. Pastors and church leaders need to have a good understanding of the Bible, doctrine and key theological issues.
The church in Africa is often faced with opposition from such diverse quarters as Animism and Islam, to sub–Christian cults and sects. Leaders must guide young Christians through the transition from these former held beliefs to a true faith in Jesus, as revealed in the Bible.
The Bible is understood very differently in Africa compared to the West, because of the differences in cultures. So it’s important that African Christians put the Gospel in its proper cultural context, making it relevant and understandable.
Bible teaching has been a priority for Mission Africa since our earliest days. After founding and running several colleges, we have now handed over the ownership of these colleges to the local church. However, we are still very active in supporting them. The three areas of ministry we are involved in are:
- Providing suitably qualified staff to teach at the colleges
- Sponsoring poor students who have proved themselves capable of academic study & qualify for our student sponsorship program me
- Assisting the colleges develop their facilities, such as buildings, boreholes, libraries and IT support
