AUA Celebrates its 6th Graduation Ceremony

2017 graduatesnofficialsThe Adventist University of Africa (AUA) joyously celebrated its 6th graduation ceremony. This graduation marked history as AUA conferred its first Doctor of Ministry degrees. 81 graduates were awarded their Doctor of Ministry Degrees while 46 others with various Masters Degrees.

The graduation was graced by leaders from the General Conference and various African Divisions. The color, smiles, tears of joy, ululations from the families of the graduating students, and dances were the order of the beautiful weekend.

“The hard work, sleepless nights have finally paid off,” said one of the Doctoral students.

“Unbelievable! I am actually dressed in this. God be praised!” echoed another Masters student.

2017 Graduating Officials

Juan PrestolThe Commencement speaker, Juan R. Prestol-Puesan (PhD), entreated the graduates to keep holding on and not to give up. He mentioned that abandoning faith places one at risk of losing their identity, life and their very own soul.

Dr. Prestol said, "As you serve as a church leader, remember this advice: get good mentors, follow their counsel, beware of the election system, avoiding politics, keep your mind clean, be humble and kind, never assume you will be elected, and seek peace with the Lord."

The Baccalaureate speaker, Pardon Mwansa (DMin), implored the graduates to do their best in an increasingly complex world. He did not mince his words while expounding on the diverse complexities bombarding men at this time.

Dr. Mwansa concluded "We have to, we have to continue what the Apostle said 'Do your best!' . . . We have the power of the Holy Spirit whose testimony we can rely on . . . We can bring peace where there is fear; calm in anxiety; we do not know what tomorrow will hold but do your best!”

The Consecration speaker, Willie Oliver (PhD), strongly reminded the students of the call to service and the need to attain to “higher the highest . . . Godliness—godlikeness—is the goal to be reached.” Using several paradoxes from Mark 10 such as adult must become child, first shall be last, leader become servant, he advocated for excellent service and submission to authority.
The Vice Chancellor charge during the Commencement service beseeched the graduates to “Go on, go on, go on, go on, go on, go on, go on.”

The students’ response, led by the Graduating Class President Dr. Gerald Mochoge, was on the affirmative that they would serve with competence and integrity, “not for the income but the outcome; we will strive to do our best until we receive the welcome ‘well done faithful servant’.”

The graduates bustled with tribute to the Almighty God, spouses, family members, student sponsors, fellow graduates, former and current AUA administration, faculty and staff and special tribute to Dr. Anna Galeniece, the graduating class sponsor.

"Only God can reward you. Our words are not sufficient. . . .May God bless you! . . . Our thank you in a more practical way would be to produce and demonstrate we have been at AUA and influence the world for the better.”


Student Lounge Dedication


The much-anticipated Student Lounge was finally launched and dedicated yesterday, 14th June 2017 at AUA. The administration, faculty, staff and student leader were present for the short dedication ceremony. The Student Services Coordinator, Joshua Momanyi, provided a brief of the services the Lounge would offer: word games, puzzles, ping-pong table (table tennis), and television with DSTV access for a start.

The Vice Chancellor affirmed all that had undertaken to make the project a reality. He was particularly thankful to Albert and Nancy Dudley who by their generous donation had facilitated the realization and completion of the Student Lounge.

The Student Leader, Pr. Gerald Mochoge, was especially enthused over the development and thanked the former and current administration for their splendid efforts.

Scholarship Opportunities



AUA recognizes that there are worthy students from different parts of Africa who, despite their will and strong commitment to learning, do not have adequate financial resources to complete a graduate program on their own and, therefore, need financial support to reach their educational goals. In response to this need, AUA has two scholarship funds developed from the generous support of donors.
