At Common Ground Theological Institute
What a privilege it has been to continue to serve the Lord at Common Ground Theological Institute. We continue to see the Lord’s faithfulness in this ministry.
CGTI continues to exist to help strengthen the church in Kenya and in the region by offering sound theological training to those men and women the Lord is calling to His Kingdom service and our vision is to see CGTI become a reformed theological center of academic excellence, ministerial relevance, theological fidelity and practical piety. I am always reminded of the urgency of our mission and vision as I see fatal encroachment of postmodernism in our society, something for a long time considered to be purely Western.
Our mission and vision ever remain our beacon in the recruitment of our faculty and structure of our curriculum. Though we face challenges in the former, we are nevertheless not discouraged as we have seen the Lord surprise us with a good international team of reformed and evangelical lecturers two of whom have their doctorates and the rest strong masters. We continue to offer Advanced Diploma in Theology but preparations for B.Th program is underway.
Good sizeable library remains a challenge. We thank the leadership of North American Theological Seminary and Equipping Pastors International for their response to our appeal for books. We continue to ask WRF family to continue praying for us in this regard.
On July 31, we will once again witness a group of ten men and women go out to their respective churches to help build the Church of Christ. This has always been a time of rejoicing for us and the church we serve. By the look of things it seems we might have a good enrolment in our next academic year which begins in September.
It is seems the Lord is taking us to Westminster Theological Seminary and College in Kampala, Uganda, early August this year. We thank God for the privilege of making us part of that vibrant ministry. Though immediate neighbor to our country Kenya, I have neither lived nor served in Uganda. No doubt it is going to be quite change for both my wife Margaret and me. We would love to meet with WRF Members in the Kampala area.
Please pray for our transition and adjustment to Uganda and also that we will remain faithful to His call to serve Him in Uganda. The LORD bless you and keep you; the LORD make His face shine upon you; the LORD turn His face toward you and give you peace. AMEN
