“Be part of the work of equipping church leaders in Rwanda”

ETF Master’s student Apollo (30), in 4 quotes:

Ever since I came to faith, I’ve always had the passion to serve in the Church. After my first theological training in the Netherlands, I went to Rwanda and worked as a teacher and advisor to local church pastors.”

Theology at the ETF
I chose ETF because of its combination of high academic standards with close ties to the church community. While most of my studies are rigorous academically, theology is never treated as an end in itself; theology is the means to knowing and worshiping God. Theology serves the church!”

Equipping leaders in Rwanda
My dream is to go back home to Rwanda and be part of the efforts to train church pastors there. The majority of our pastors are without basic theological education; they have a passion for God and his mission but lack the skills to properly interpret Scripture and be effective in ministry. My hope and dream are to be part of the work of equipping church leaders with the necessary skills to further God’s work in Rwanda.”

Living on campus
The ETF community is very vibrant with lots of young students with a passion for God and his church. Living on campus means there’s always someone to talk to or eat with… There are lots of community activities and this makes it a warm environment. Of course, the campus is only a few minutes away from the vibrant city of Leuven – a city that offers so many options for spending one’s free time. I certainly enjoy living in Leuven.”
