Central African Preaching Academy exists to exalt Christ and strengthen His church in Africa by training pastors to understand, live out, and effectively communicate God’s Word. We are a part of The Master’s Academy International, a nonprofit organization providing educational and financial resources to a fellowship of biblically sound training ministries worldwide.
An unswerving commitment to preaching the Scriptures
The Bible is the inspired, inerrant, sufficient Word of God (2 Tim. 3:16-17). Therefore, learning to accurately interpret and faithfully proclaim the biblical text is central to our training.
Learning that impacts living
Pastoral ministry requires more than academic excellence. Those who desire to devote their lives to ministry must not simply know the Scriptures, but also live them (1 Tim 4:16). Hence we seek to cultivate holiness, self-sacrifice, and other Christ-like character qualities in our students’ lives.
Prioritizing the local church
God has given pastors to the church to equip the saints for the work of the ministry and to build up the body of Christ (Eph 4:11-12). Consequently, our curriculum requires students to complete practical ministry assignments in their churches. Our prayer is that our graduates would be dedicated servant-leaders of the local church.
Pastors training pastors
Our faculty is composed of pastors who bring years of fruitful ministry experience and proven spiritual leadership in a church context to the classroom environment. As they pass on what they have learned to our students, we hope that those students will in turn pass on these things to other faithful men (2 Tim 2:2).
