Theological education in Southern Africa has a rich history stretching back to 1915. What is now called the Southern Africa Nazarene University (SANU) in Eswatini is the oldest ministerial college of the Church of the Nazarene in mainland Africa. From the beginning, it provided ministerial preparation for a diverse community, which attracted various denominations and international students from Mozambique, the Republic of South Africa, Malawi, Zimbabwe, Zambia, and Kenya. For the past 89 years, it has occupied its present location, providing education and training to men and women for service to God and to the people of the Kingdom.

Updates to the campus in the 1980s and 1990s included the residence halls and chapel, among other additions. Since 2000, though, there have been only minor updates, leaving multiple parts of the campus in great need of updating and repair to bring them to standards to support modern education.  The residential units in particular are in an unacceptable state and are not conducive to the high quality of training that is the vision of the Siteki School of Theology.  

This project will support an ambitious updating plan that includes:

  • Bringing educational buildings up to modern standards to optimize learning
  • Updating IT infrastructure
  • Upgrading residential buildings
  • Updating campus security measures, including adding fencing
  • Campus beautification projects, including landscaping and repair of the existing arch

On campus gathering of students at the Siteki School Of Theology at SANU with qualified professors and other students is a formula for lifelong mentoring, peer mentoring, and the development of a community of congregational leaders who know and support the work of the local church. Bringing the gospel to the people is not for the faint of heart. It takes a community of leaders for the work of the great commission to be dynamically supported. Providing a well-equipped home base for education and mentoring will be key in deploying the next generation of pastors, evangelists and missionaries from southern Africa.
