Why study at Africa International University

Africa International University is a chartered Christian university which has been Influencing the world since 1983 when it was started as Nairobi Evangelical Graduate School of Theology (NEGST) through the vision of the Association of Evangelicals in Africa (AEA).

NEGST was set up with the initial goal of providing training to pastors beyond the basic certificate and diploma levels. This was informed by the envisioned crisis of 'Christo-paganism' in African Christianity without African Biblical theologians with advanced training to provide leadership in combating this trend.

AIU's ultimate objective was not simply the enrichment of the scholar, but of the ordinary believer in the church who was often poorly taught and vulnerable to a confused understanding of Christian truth. The establishment of an evangelical graduate school of theology was seen as a viable instrument to that end.

Africa International University is committed to God's mission and connected to His world. We seek to be a learning community that practices loving God and neighbor with heart and mind. We encourage staff and students to cultivate both the desires of the heart and mind. Our education perspective embraces disciplined, rigorous critical thinking and allows for the nurturing of relationships, creativity, and innovation for fun and laughter.
