Theological Training

Emmanuel International UK

Emmanuel International in Uganda has a relationship with two theological colleges associated with the Church of Uganda (Anglican). The first college, Janani Luwum Theological College in Gulu Town, is a long-established college with certificate and diploma courses for students at the Reverend and Lay Pastor (Catechist) level. The second college, Bishop Lee Rayfield Leadership Training Centre in a small rural centre near Pader Town, is a newer college still working on accreditation and proper infrastructure, and offers certificate courses at the Lay Pastor (Catechist) level only. Both colleges have expressed a need for tutors to teach subjects, and Bishop Lee Rayfield has also expressed a desire for help with administration. Subjects taught at the colleges include: Systematic Theology, Old Testament, New Testament, Church History, Preaching, Worship, Christian Education, Development Studies, English Language/Study Skills, African Traditional Religion, and Islam.

Emmanuel International has also been approached by local church leaders who have expressed a desire for in-service training for their pastors and lay leaders.


  • Teaching and administrative roles can be discussed and negotiated with the two colleges according to the interests and qualifications of the applicant and the current needs of the college
  • In-service training with church leaders, which may include conferences or other short trainings at local churches
  • Other responsibilities, according to the desire and interest of the applicant, could include teaching on a weekly radio show, preaching at local churches and schools, teaching at youth conferences, and theological training for Emmanuel International staff
