About NEGST

Studying at NEGST, a Must!

NEGST, the School of Theology of Africa International University started as Graduate School of Theology in 1983 at its serene Campus in Karen, Nairobi. NEGST exists to train and equip Christians for Christian ministry and to help them develop a deeper understanding of the nature and character of God and how this knowledge informs the mission in the world.

NEGST promotes excellence in African Christianity by training Christ-centered leaders, cutting-edge pastors, and Christian workers of character and integrity for holistic ministry and spiritual renewal in the Church and change agents in society and the global community.

In its 33 years of existence, NEGST has trained and equipped leaders with strong and sound theological, biblical, historical, missional and pastoral foundations to handle and deal with religious, cultural, social, political, economic and developmental problems facing the Church in Africa today. By relating Christian theology and the Bible to the deep culturally rooted questions facing the Church in Africa today, NEGST has contributed immensely to the growth of the Church in Africa through its alumni who are found all over Africa. Over the years NEGST has developed Christian thinkers who have written on issues to do with Christianity in Africa thus strengthening the Church in the faith. Eleven of NEGST Alumni and three faculty members were involved with the Africa Bible Commentary. NEGST will make you the pastor and scholar you must be.
