AU's School of Theology attracted a large number of young international students this year. Individuals from Kenya, Singapore, India, Nepal, Mexico and Russia have recently joined the ranks of seminary students pursuing graduate degrees at the SOT. Their diverse backgrounds and experiences add diversity and depth to the classroom experience.
For AU School of Theology students, Dr. Robert Langat of Kenya hopes to shine a new light on perceptions of missions work.
During his year-long residency at AU, Langat will teach three classes: African Religion and Culture, History of Missions and Biblical Theology of Poverty. In addition to teaching, he will offer two public lectures: "Understanding Leadership in a Culture Not Our Own" and "Theology of the Poor."
