Christian Leaders for Africa (CLA) is a not-for-profit organization of people who share a vision for Africans training Africans in Africa. Formed in November, 2002, CLA is a partner with Africa International University (AIU) in Nairobi, Kenya. AIU is a Christian university that was previously known as the Nairobi Evangelical Graduate School of Theology (NEGST). The university will have three major schools of study, NEGST, the Institute for the Study of African Realities (ISAR), and the School for Professional Studies (SPS).
The board and staff of CLA seek to develop US support for ongoing programs at NEGST, including student scholarships, faculty support, the new doctoral initiatives and various capital projects.
In January of this year, the CLA Board asked Jim Rogers to lead CLA as Interim Executive Director, following Ed Fischer’s resignation.
Jim is a member of the AIU-NEGST Governing Council and has been serving as liaison to the CLA Board since 2008.
My name is George Murichu, and I began studying at Africa International University in September 2012. I am pursuing a Master of Divinity in Biblical Studies
I come from a close-knit family that consists of my Mum, my elder sister, and I. My parents separated when I was very young, and since then Mum has raised us up by God’s grace. Indeed the grace of God has been sufficient through life’s different seasons. To have made it this far is testimony of His providence and provision!
