Transitioning from a Theological College to a Christian University


The decision for ministerial training institutions to become broader educational institutions is not unique to a specific geographical context. While there are many examples of notable institutions making this transition in North America and Europe, little reflection has been carried out in the global south. The study explores the motivations of educational leaders in pursuing such a transition, as well as the impact it has had or will have on the continued theological education and Christian mission of the institution.
