Theological Education Commission

Background

By way of inviting more dedicated men and women to work for the good of the Church, Christ says to you and me, 

"The harvest is plenty, but the labourers are few, pray therefore to the Lord of the Harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his Harvest."  (Matthew 9:37-38).

The essence of any ecclesiastical diocese is shaped by the calibre of the clergy who serve therein.  For any church to be able to perpetuate the charge given to it by Jesus Christ, to go to all people everywhere and make them his disciples (Matthew 28:19), the diocese should be administered by leaders with foresight and wisdom guided by the Holy Spirit.  

With the need for such leaders in mind, the bishop saw it fit to firmly establish a commission that would oversee the recruitment and training of candidates for the ordained ministry.

Aims and Objectives

In our policy, as the Theological Education Commission, we urge the clergy to be in pursuit of Godly learning all their life.  This is a commitment they pronounce even in their ordination vows.  

The desire to further their studies and obtain higher qualifications to enrich their ministry is therefore fundamental.  

This commission therefore aims to:

  • Transform clergy into the age of dynamism through appropriate study.
  • Help individual clergy understand what they preach to people through personal education in theological matters.
  • Educate clergy in their important role as spiritual healers in the society.
  • Make it easier for clergy to reach out to all;  the educated and less educated members of their congregations, comfortably.
  • Encourage the clergy to be up-to-date with the current developments of their contemporary world, spiritually, materially, economically, and even politically.
  • Arm the clergy spiritually and intellectually as they minister to people like sheep to a pack of wolves and do so as cautiously as snakes but as gently as doves.  (Matthew 10:16)
