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.
AIU PhD Graduate Published
CLA is pleased to announce a significant achievement by the first graduate of AIU’s PhD program, Dr. Daniel Hankore. His dissertation has been published by Wipf & Stock Publishers under the title The Abduction of Dinah: Reading Genesis 28:10-35:15 as a Votive Narrative.
It is available from Amazon (UK, US) and other retailers. Thank you for your prayers and financial support for AIU’s doctoral program. It would not have developed without your help, and we celebrate the return on your investment in Dr. Hankore’s excellent work.
Paying Attention to the Gospel
David Fugoyo is earning a PhD in biblical studies, Old Testament, at AIU. Here he shares how his vision for South Sudan is made possible by his education.
I first heard about AIU (then NEGST) while in Khartoum, Sudan, in the mid 1990s. Knowing that my ministry was going to be in Africa, I chose to go to AIU for my graduate degree. It wasn’t until 2007 that I arrived at the school and began to study biblical studies. Since then, my education and experiences at AIU have steadily shaped me into who I am today, and they will continue to play a positive role in my life and ministry in Africa.
