Anglican Church seeks to boost education, infrastructure

The Anglican Church will soon start its own university that will among other things offer theology courses in a bid to improve the quality of education for church leaders to abide by the new law governing faith-based organisations.

The East African Christian University is located in Kabuga, Gasabo district and is ready to start, according to officials.

It will also offer courses such as theology, communication, business, public health, education, among others, according to Laurent Mbanda, Archbishop of Anglican Church in Rwanda.

Officials made the revelations on Friday during the closing of a two-day conference that brought together senior church leaders and their counterparts from United States of America to discuss how the church can contribute more to the development of the church and Rwandans in general.

“Construction activities of the university are almost complete and all is set. We applied for accreditation fromthe Higher Education Council (HEC) to allow us to start offering courses, we hope they will visit and give us the go-ahead to start,” he said.
