Training Philosophy

21445899_s Missionary training at RECSOM is vocationally professional, thereby enhancing the effectiveness of our trainees in diverse contexts given our philosophy of integrating theory with practice. We achieve this through:

  • Integrated learning approach of academic and praxis in order to facilitate holistic training of our missionaries.
  • Provision of learning opportunities for our students beyond the class room through apprenticeship with our tutors and missionaries working in various contexts.
  • Offer of a wide range of Integrated Learning Weekend (ILWs) in which a mission topic of contemporary relevance is investigated collaboratively by the student body.
  • Consistently prodding our missionaries to be contextually astute and faithful to the evangelical biblical worldview.

The school’s faculty comprises experienced missionaries and mission minded lecturers most of whom have had personal practical (field) missionary experience.
