Christian education in southern Africa is getting a much-needed shot in the arm. Doctor Phillip Renicks is with the Association of Christian Schools International and was there recently hosting an All Africa Conference. “The thing that it did was, really united the Christian school movement across sub Sahara Africa. There was just a sense of God’s presence there. There was a sense of feeling that we have a goal, a task that needs to be completed and we want to work toward that.” Renicks says as governments in Africa struggle to fund and staff schools, they’re providing need educational opportunities with one thing in mind. “The Christian school is the greatest tool for evangelism and discipleship that the church has today. Evangelism is a very key part of what we would consider to be important in Christian education in southern Africa.”
