Why LEMA Theological Seminary (LEMATS)?
Christianity is exploding in Africa.
The lack of opportunities for higher education have left the church with many untrained leaders. It is believed that more than 70% of ministry leaders in Africa do not have any formal ministry training.
Without knowledge of God’s Word and a biblically trained leader to guide them, it is difficult for African Christians to live faithfully in the midst of political instability, poverty, and trauma. This leaves many churches vulnerable to corruption, false teachings, and ungodly worship practices.
Furthermore, the ethics of ministry in Africa remains at its lowest ebb. The cumulative result is that even while the African church is growing in number, it has not activated its full potential for sending missionaries to the world.
The LEMA Theological Seminary, (LEMATS), a ministry of the LEMA Institute is established to address these needs by providing innovative education opportunities that train and equip pastors and ministry leaders to know God’s Word, to serve God’s people well and to lead others to Christ.
THE LEMAT'S ACADEMIC BOARD

Additional responsibilities will be to formulate, coordinate and review academic policy, procedures and guidelines within LEMATS, as well as advises the board of trustees on the academic aspects of LEMATS's strategic, operational and risk management plans.
