The African Christian College family celebrated the joyful graduation of nine students on Thursday, 06 December.
Having sacrificed the familiar of home and moving to Swaziland, these students studied diligently, worked hard on campus, while also being parents, friends, evangelists, and student leaders. They return home equipped to be excellent servants and leaders in their community.
The graduation ceremony included a charge from Sydney Mhango, a special song written and performed by the third year class, and the awarding of certificates. Mbwenu Chirwa, a graduate from Malawi, was awarded the highest academic honour for the class for his academic excellence. Incoming president Brad Carter also invited the students to join our new “Greater Blessing Movement” where alumni receive an even greater blessing than their education: the blessing of giving.
Eight students graduated with a Bachelor of Theology degree and one graduated with a diploma in theology. The following students earned a Bachelor of Theology degree with a minor in counselling:
- Joan Cheptot, Kenya
- Judith Mutanga, Zimbabwe
- Justice Nherera, Zimbabwe
- Mongie Silombo, Swaziland
The following people earned a Bachelor of Theology degree with a minor in leadership:
- Hillary Cheptot, Kenya
- Mbwenu Chirwa, Malawi
- Spencer Kasauka, Zambia
- Kenneth Mutanga, Zimbabwe
Duncan Ojiambo from Uganda completed a Diploma in Theology with emphasis in counselling.
These students are all packed up and most will begin the journey home on Friday morning. For some, it will only take a couple of days. For others, it may take three weeks or more. Prayers for their travels and for the ministry they are now beginning throughout Southern and East Africa are greatly appreciated.
