Good News Theological College and Seminary trains leaders for African Instituted Churches (AIC).

Good News Theological College and Seminary is an interdenominational institution of higher learning founded in 1971. It provides biblical, theological and pastoral education primarily to leaders of African Instituted Churches (AICs). These churches are established, funded, spread, led, and administered by Africans. Other churches who are not AICs also benefit from the educational programmes of the seminary.

The faculty and staff are committed to providing evangelical and contextual theological education to students and leaders of churches that are associated with the seminary. It is to this end that the Government of Ghana has accredited the seminary to provide two programmes: (1) Diploma in Pastoral Ministry and (2) Bachelor of Theology. In addition to the full-time programmes, the faculty of the seminary runs seminars and conferences for churches and auxiliary groups.

The vision of the seminary is described by its core values – Wisdom, Spirituality and Diligence. Students are trained to take on the spirit of wisdom in their daily ministries, thereby expanding and enriching their spirituality. In order to reach their goals the students are trained to work hard, whether under pleasant or unpleasant circumstances.

Students are equipped to study and interpret the Word of God in its totality. The need to evangelize in a multi-cultural and global oriented world is also emphasized. Students learn that the Lordship and vicarious death of Jesus Christ is fundamental to finding answers to the multi-faceted challenges of the world. They also come to understand that being filled with the Holy Spirit is essential for effective, relevant and practical ministry.

All these conform with our mission statementto provide sound Christ-centred education to the Church and Society, fully equipping both men and women with character, knowledge and skills for servant leadership in the African context.

We invite church leaders and prospective students to explore this website and possibly enroll.
