It’s all systems go as the East Africa Churches of Christ prepare to host the 10th edition of the Ministry Training Academy (MTA) to be held in Nairobi Kenya on 14-15th June, 2019.
This time round the students will learn about Christ and Culture exploring the relation of the Christian to the world around them. Special consideration will be given to the topics of race/tribe, politics, gender issues, technology and the changing global culture. The course will explore ways of engaging culture and provide guidance for leaders to navigate culture as they shepherd God’s people.
The MTA students are required to read, Will the Real Heretics Please Stand Up by David Bercot and Crossing the Line; Culture, Race, and Kingdom by Michael Burns as part of their preparation for this specific training.
Michael Burns, the author of the second title and currently a teacher in the Minneapolis-St. Paul Church of Christ will be the main facilitator. He is an International biblical teacher. This promises to be a great time of learning and fellowship. The leaders from our East Africa Churches of Christ will be in attendance accompanied by a section of their congregation.
