Is the Seminary the Servant of the Church? – Mvula J. Mvula

There is a general outcry that the products of the seminaries are not what the churches need. The knowledge and skills they acquire through their training is seen as being irrelevant for church ministry, inappropriate for context and dominated by secular academic patterns. We will seek to answer the question of whether the seminary is a servant of the church and if so, how it should function. We will broadly look at three areas namely the relationship between the church and theological training, the contextualization of theological training and the relationship between academic excellence and practical training.
