Department of Theological Education Anglican Church of Tanzania
Coordinator: Rev. Fr John George Sembuyagi
Vision: We prefer to have Theological Education which is Internationally Recognised, Bible Based, and Christ Centred, Contextually applied which brings Future holistic transformation in the life of the Anglican Church of Tanzania.
Where ‘Internationally Recognised’ means nationally registered institutions and students,
Where ‘Bible Based’ means that the whole of the Bible is taught as the word of God
Where ‘Christ Centred’ means that Christ and his life, death and resurrection are acknowledge and taught as the sacrifice that brings salvation and restored relationship with God the Father.
Where ‘Contextually Applied’ means that there is both transmission and enactment of the teaching in the various courses and colleges
Where ‘Future’ is the orientation of our vision whilst recognising the foundations provided in the past
Where ‘Holistic’ means effecting the whole of life – physical, spiritual and economical
Where ‘Transformative’ means that there is the expectation that this brings change in the life of the direct recipients and those they will later effect
