April prayer focus: The Seminary

graduationThe 2010 Mulungwishi Ministry calendar asks us to pray for the Methodist Seminary. The seminary, created in 1951, was the first seminary at university level for the United Methodist Church in French Speaking Africa!

Through the years, Congolese have assumed faculty and staff positions. Today, there are more than 5 PhDs on staff.

Since 1976 women have also entered the ministry. When you look at the growth of the church, you see how these young men and women have faithfully carried out the Gospel message through the years.
