TE Vision Trip - 2020

AIM Opportunities

Theological Education on the Road Less Traveled.

One week in Kenya exploring the needs and opportunities for Theological Educators.

At AIM, we long to see African churches communicate the gospel in all its fullness, building up believers who will in turn reach out to their communities. There is a great need to equip African church leaders, preachers, and evangelists to serve their churches well and take part in reaching the unreached through Biblical teaching and Christlike discipleship.

The 2020 Theological Education (TE) Vision Trip will provide an opportunity to see and experience TE ministry firsthand in Kenya, gaining a vision for the need and potential of this crucial work. Participants will learn and observe through visits to five different institutions that are training the next generation of Africans to lead their churches in faith and on mission. In addition, educators serving in more remote ministry settings will come and share their perspective: one from the desert region of Northern Kenya, and one from the highly Islamic coastal region. The trip will be guided by an experienced AIM missionary and a Kenyan pastor, and will include an overnight at one of Kenya’s majestic game parks.

Come and experience the beauty of Kenya’s culture and scenery while seeking God’s heart for reaching Africa’s peoples with the gospel. Come and see if TE ministry may be something God is calling you to.

Trip Facilitators:

Your Guides

Dr. Phil Morrison, former AIM Theological Education Consultant

A former pastor, Phil moved with his family to Kenya in the early 90’s. His passion for training leaders led him to lecture for a decade at Moffat Bible College and to then establish The Multi-Pastor Institute, a seminar-based ministry with branches in Africa and Asia. Phil has written extensively on church leadership issues, and now resides in the U.S. with his wife Jan where he serves as AIM’s Child Safety Assistant.

Reverend Stanley Mutangili, AIC Pastor

Dedicated to the preaching and teaching of God’s Word, Stanley has co-pastored the Africa Inland Church – Plainsview for over 20 years. The heart of AIC – Plainsview shares the heart of theological education, “edifying believers and evangelizing the unsaved.” Stanley is a clear communicator, has a firm understanding of Western culture, and is a recipient of much theological education himself. He and his family call Nairobi home.

Christina S, Northeast Mobilizer

In her role, Christina has the privilege to walk alongside those preparing to live and serve in Africa. She taught primary school for one year in a previously unreached Kenyan community, and is thrilled that one of her seventh grade ‘babies’ is now beginning Bible school, the first from his school. Christina knows firsthand the value of theological education, having recently completed her Masters in Counseling at Westminster Theological Seminary.

Visiting Instructors

Dr. John Kang, AIM Missionary

John and his wife, Hey Ran, began their career in missions nearly 30 years ago when they became instructors for a Bible Institute in Namibia. After a decade in Uganda, John traded in his chalk to serve as the Director for AIM’s Mobilizing Region in Korea. He’s now back in the classroom in a Kenyan desert town, where he leverages his PhD at a training center he founded. He delights in seeing pastors equipped for ministry, often among the unreached.

Peter Macharia, AIC Missionary

For more than 20 years, Peter has served as a missionary with the Africa Inland Church. He has joined hands with AIM in creative access locations, where additional sensitivity and innovation are carrying the gospel forward. He’s now in the business of multiplying himself by training fellow Kenyans and Tanzanians for effective ministry along the Muslim-dominant coast. He desires strongly to see the church mobilized to reach the unreached for Christ.
