What About Musical Instruments in Worship?

Greetings and blessings to you. How amazing it is to realize that a month from now we will be in the middle of our Golden Jubilee Celebration. We are looking forward with great excitement to welcoming all of you to our campus as we thank God for carrying us through the last fifty years. Please do come and join us.

On a different note, one of the activities we have here is Sunday evening services that start at 18:00hrs until about 19:30hrs. We discuss real life issues on under the topic, “What Does the Bible Say About,” and we put whatever subject depending on the schedule. A person delivers a twenty-minute presentation, followed by a Read More

Glory for God in Prisons

Beloved readers, it is such a blessing once again to share with you what people are doing in their respective counties. Today we bring you a person we have covered before, Stanley Shereni, who works in the Prison Ministry in Zimbabwe. The work that he does is truly a blessing to the inmates there and a joy to us as we celebrate 50 years of sending out people to spread the word of God. For an introduction to this man, you may read the first post we did on his work. We hope that you will be blessed as you listen to Stanley sharing the work he does up in Zimbabwe. On the benevolence work, where we try to provide material aid to those in need, 65 jerseys have been taken to a prison to help inmates during this bitter cold winter. Read More

“I Come For The Going” – Jordan Wesley

During this time of the year we get many visiting lecturers from the USA for our two-week courses. It is always a pleasure reading their reflections about being part of ACC, and this week we hear from an outstanding lady, Jordan Wesley, who was teaching our Organisational Leadership majors Outcomes Measurement and Financial Accountability. Be blessed. In three terms as a guest lecturer at ACC, I have read final projects that describe small village churches supporting children who have been orphaned because of HIV infection. I have read stories of communities coming together to start small businesses, plant trees or build water pumps. Students have written about improving educational access for girls and starting small gardening projects Read More

Teaching at ACC Has Been Such a Blessing

Brother Floyd Vidler is one of the popular visiting lecturers we have here. He has been of tremendous help teaching some courses, but has been focusing now on Personal Evangelism these last few years. It is a joy to have him share his experiences about being at ACC. Here is brother Floyd. Teaching at ACC for the last six years have been a huge blessing to me, one I cannot begin to express in words.  While my wife, Connie, had been here once before, for a few days, I was able to have her with me for the whole two weeks of this mid-mester.  I am so thankful that she got to be with this community and was also able to bless what I did this time. A day or so ago Connie was on Facebook and noticed that one of my former students (Felix) Read More

“Being at ACC is Not a Mistake” – Muziwababa

I have come a long way from home, travelled thousands of kilometres, left my family and friends and came to the kingdom of Swaziland. It may not seem much to one looking from a distance but I will assure you that this sacrifice has been the greatest I have made in following God. I say this because we Africans in general believe a lot in family and community such that at times it seems like we are like trees rooted in the ground – us being rooted in our families. Despite that, I , Muziwababa Sithole, left Zimbabwe, my home area of Manyikaland, with only my wife and three children, Shammah, Shalom and Makanaka, and started on this adventure of pursuing God through education. It was through conversations with my young brother Tawanda Read More

Macadamia Nut Season Over

Beloved reader, greetings to you wherever you are. It is always a pleasure to share with you stories concerning what is happening in our Tree of Life project and how different people are doing their part to contribute to the success of the institution. Since the year began, we have been following the macadamia nut process from the harvesting stage. I am hoping that by now you have a slight idea about what happens, when and why. However, if you have not been following this blog, I would recommend that you check the blogs that we posted before. The macadamia season has come to an end, and we are now down to the final stage of the process – preparing to transport them to South Africa. Although we have been doing this work for a long time Read More

The Common Desire to Serve

I have been going around the campus with one question on my mind – what makes ACC be ACC? It has been a privilege and blessing for me to be part of the communications team where I get to hear different stories from people who share their views about what this place means to them. Each time I sit down to write or edit someone’s document, I am always touched and blessed by the spirit and passion these people have, not only for their future but for the kingdom of our God. I have also scrutinized the work put in by the faculty and staff every day to make this place what it is and what it aspires to be. Believe me, there is no way you can live in such an environment and not be awed by what is going on. It is these observations and more that made Read More

Visiting Students Share Their ACC Joy

These last two weeks we had four students from Oklahoma Christian University who came with Dr. Charles Rix to teach Introduction to the Hebrew Bible. They jumped excitedly to the opportunity to share their story with us. Elijah Weaver wrote on behalf of them. Read and be blessed. The road that leads to African Christian College begins on a newly paved street leading east from Matsapha. Shortly morphing into a bumpy dirt road, it continues forth, running parallel to the old airport, until it winds sharply to the left, bringing into view the yet hidden campus of African Christian College. Like the country of Swaziland, sitting stealthily tucked within the northeast corner of South Africa, so sits the college, seemingly inconspicuous off Read More

I have been privileged to teach undergraduate and graduate students at three universities over the past 40 years. In accepting an invitation from Read More
