Sustainable Development Goals: Transforming Africa

 David Williams, keynote speaker at the Research Conference

 An intensely exciting and meaningful international occasion took place over the past weekend at the Adventist University of Africa. It was the 4th Annual Research Conference by the School of Postgraduate Studies held from 13th to 15th September 2018. The Conference theme “Sustainability Development Goals (SDG): Transforming Africa” was considerably researched, applied and presented by over 50 researchers.

Who would have known that such a topic could be made to have such significance to so many people in the Seventh-day Adventist context to the Adventist and non-Adventist attendees? The seventeen international goals were so appreciably dissected over the three-day conference.

Further, the special featured guests: Dr. David Williams, US, and Dr. Anne Nangulu, Kenya, Adventist Development Relief Agency (ADRA) Africa and other devotional speakers were exceptional. Practical, sound, well-researched data and its application were presented. Renown Dr Williams presented papers on health such as depression, stress, healthy and unhealthy spirituality. He closely linking research data with Scripture and the writings of Ellen White.

AUA Celebrates its Seventh Graduation Ceremony

The Adventist University of Africa celebrated their seventh graduation ceremony with colour, pomp and jubilation despite the chilly weather. Sixty-seven graduands matched down the walkway with poise knowing that their efforts had availed much including an honourable degree.

The three guest speakers, Ganoune Diop (PhD), Ademola Tayo (PhD) and Samuel Makori (DMin) wonderfully graced the occasion from 8 to 10 June 2018.

In his commencement speech, Dr Diop, the Director of Public Affairs and Religious Liberty at the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists (GC), stated that “Degrees are just tools to proclaim the most excellent one—Jesus Christ . . . Our real calling is connected to love. Without it, any excellence is an illusion." After which he quoted from the passage in 1 Corinthians 13. He urged the graduates and audience to look to Jesus—the face of excellence and the most excellent One. He crowned it when he blessed the audience as he flawlessly recited Psalm 23 in Hebrew.

During the Baccalaureate service, Dr Tayo, the President/Vice Chancellor of Babcock University, asked: “Where in the midst of existence does our training have relevance for the society today?” He responded profoundly by stating “Your training has prepared you to serve the world; to transform the world. Existence is not meaningful by living to be served but to serve.”

Dr Makori, the East Kenya Union Conference President, reminded the audience of Christ’s attitude of humility without which “the most talented and gifted people are the most dangerous people in the world.” He tickled the audience when he narrated how he rode on a motorcycle—something he had never experienced—from the city so as to make it in time for the graduation programme. He challenged the graduates to live above mediocrity and to be “excellent in all things, even in the least of all things.”

The Vice-Chancellor, Dr Delbert Baker charged the graduates to “Go on, Go on, Go on . . . Go on!”

The graduates poured heartfelt tributes to God for the strength to endure academic trials and tribulations; to families—spouses and children—who sacrificed and denied themselves; and to the University administration, faculty, staff and sponsors. The GC and the three African Divisions in Sub-Sahara Africa--East-Central Africa (ECD), Southern Africa-Indian Ocean (SID) and West-Central Africa (WAD)--were saluted for bringing the Adventist University of Africa within the reach of most students in Africa.

One of the graduating students in Master of Arts in Biblical and Theological Studies, John Njagi, saluted "the General Conference for bringing Adventist education closer and within reach of most Africans through establishing the Adventist University of Africa in Africa."

The Launch of the of the African Seventh-day Adventist History Website 

The University equally launched the African Seventh-day Adventist History (ASAH) website during the same graduation weekend. ASAH, created and operated by the University, is a one-stop shop for free information, documents and materials on the history of the Seventh-day Adventist Church in Sub-Saharan Africa. The website was born out of a partnership with the three African Divisions of the Church in Subsaharan Africa: East-Central Africa Division (ECD), West-Central Africa Division (WAD) and Southern Africa-Indian Ocean Division (SID). The website can be accessed via www.africansdahistory.org.
