VISION The vision of the University is to establish and develop an advanced evangelical, interdenominational, theological University in Africa, which undertakes: * Various training programmes to equip evangelical Christians for leadership roles in the Church and Society. * Research into orthodox and contemporary theological issues in Africa. * Dissemination of information for the education and enlightenment of the Church and society. The vision of the University defines clearly its focus in Christianity and for that matter what it exists for, namely, training, research and information dissemination through publications etc. HISTORY The University began as the merger of two visions in January 1974. A group of Ghanaian Christians had a vision of an interdenominational, evangelical institution of a high academic standard, which would train men and women for all types of Christian Ministry. The second group comprised expatriate missionaries who had a vision of an institution to train workers from the well-established Church in southern Ghana for a thrust into northern Ghana and neighbouring countries where the Church was relatively very small. Evangelical Christianity in Ghana in the late 1960’s and early 1970’s was characterized, among other things, by intimate interaction and collaboration and a blurring of denominational, mission and group distinctions. The Worldwide Evangelization for Christ (WEC), which was one of the missionary groups in the second group of visionaries, had acquired property in Kumasi on which they had built four dwelling houses and a radio studio with plans to construct a large building to serve as the beginning of a training University. Soon the two visions merged. In October 1974, the first residential classes started with four students.
