To provide a stimulating, gospel-shaped academic environment in the Reformed tradition for students who are enrolled in PhD and Masters-level studies at other universities, as well as for students who are enrolled in GWC’s Bachelor of Theology Honours programme. The ERF aims to cultivate scholars toward a mature contextual understanding of the Gospel in order to enhance evangelical ministry on the African continent.
The ERF offers students the following:
World class research facilities such as the Broughton Knox library containing 60,000+ volumes
Research and preaching seminars from leading local and international scholars
One-on-one mentoring from specialist Faculty
Accommodation on the GWC campus
Conversation partners with peers enrolled in the ERF
Through participation in this stimulating intellectual environment, pastors and theologians in the ERF receive an advanced-level education which better equips them as teachers and for evangelical ministry, along with producing theological literature that will shape the church in Africa. Students from the ERF generally proceed to teach at seminaries or to minister in churches in Africa.
