Within a few days of graduating, our 2012 alumni were already at work with job offers, equipping other church leaders, and expanding the kingdom — even before some of them arrived home!

In Ephesians Paul writes, “So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ” (4:11-13, NIV).

In other words, the task of the ministry is to equip people to do God’s work. At African Christian College, we work to equip men and women for excellent service in the kingdom. We strive for them to learn to be Christian leaders for their families, churches, and communities who are ready and able to equip others for God’s work.

Our 2012 graduates are already at it!  Here are a few updates…

Mongie Silombo, a counselling graduate from Swaziland, had the shortest distance to get home. Within a week of graduation, Mongie secured a job in Manzini with Management Training and Development Institute (MTDI), a research and management regional organization in Africa headquartered in the Kingdom of Swaziland. Mongie will be working in the office and also as a part-time lecturer teaching HIV/AIDS management and siSwati (the local language) in its training programs.

Zambian alumnus Spencer Kasauka stopped for a prearranged interview at a college on his way back home to Chipata. The result, a job offer he is considering with other options for the best places for him to lead and serve in God’s kingdom.

The Cheptot and Chirwa families traveled together to Malawi (a stopover for the Cheptot family’s route to the Mt. Elgon region of Kenya). While in Tombolombo, the church invited them to lead some workshops and meetings. Hundreds attended as they preached, taught, and shared some of the knowledge they gained at ACC.

Mbwenu Chirwa wrote following the weekend sessions, “I want to give credit to ACC for what you have done on us. We now start to realise how much we how learn and grown while there.”
