The Course


This course is designed by practising church leaders for other church leaders. Therefore, it is informed by real life situations of African Christianity, both in Africa and in the African Diaspora. The program will also equip you with the theoretical understanding and practical knowhow to strengthen your cross-cultural work. Liverpool Hope University’s MA African Christianity engages with one of the most vibrant and exciting dimensions of Christianity in the world today. Students will study the worship, faith and life of African Christians – both in their historic and contemporary dimensions, within Africa and across the world. Access to the degree will be facilitated by the blended learning approach that it follows – combining classroom and on-line line learning. The classroom teaching will be delivered during intensive residential by Hope staff at our Hope Park campus. Students will have monthly monitoring conversations with supervisors using Hope’s Moodle and where necessary, via other platforms such as Skype

The program opens up a vast array of career opportunities as you develop your wide range of knowledge- and skill-bases with theories and experiences that can be applied in a variety of contexts; from congregational ministry to mission agencies and diplomatic organisations. As a graduate of this program, you will be empowered as a cross-cultural African minister in the Diaspora, or as foreign missionaries serving among Africa peoples, or as a cultural interpreter in a diplomatic agency like the UN. You will also be equipped for further studies if you are interested in a PhD.
