"There has been a tremendous increase in African Christianity during the past decade which is not yet reflected in a similar strength and capacity in theological education on the African continent. ... But there still is a gap in terms of availability and accessibility of theological education on the African continent as the majority of resources mobilized for theological education are located in countries of the West and the number of institutions of theological education in Africa has only grown to some extent, but is not keeping pace with the growth of African Christianity. We are living in a state of emergency with regard to shortages in leadership development in theological education in Africa."
In response they are working to set up a fund "to serve faculty development programmes in the area of Master and doctoral programmes of African theologians studying and being trained not in the West, but within African institutions of theological education."
