President Uhuru at AUA

 

The Adventist University of Africa (AUA) Strategic Development Partners (SDP) is a group of lay professionals who have volunteered to mobilize church membership and friends of goodwill and financial resources for the development of the Adventist University of Africa.

SDP recently had a special collection on 22nd February 2015 at Advent Hill, Ongata Rongai, Kajiado, Kenya for the Health Sciences Building construction. The occasion was graced His Excellency Hon. Uhuru Muigai Kenyatta, Commander of the Golden Heart, President and Commander in Chief of the Defence Forces of the Republic of Kenya, as the Chief Guest.
 
The Health and Sciences Building is designed to be a grand ultra-modern, green design building. Its three floors will include the Distance Learning Centre, smart class rooms, Lecture halls, laboratories, offices and lounges for both the students and the faculty. Ramps will be placed strategically to enable the physically challenged to have full, equal learning environment for students. In addition it will provide a magnificent working atmosphere for the staff.

The cost of building is estimated to be Kshs. 211,709,805 approx. USD 2,461,741.

Cabinet Secretaries Dr. Fred Matiangi and Prof. Jacob Kaimenyi of Information and Communication Technology and Education Ministry respectively, attended and participated during the occasion. Other Honourable County Governors, Senators and Members of Parliament were also present for the same event.

The event was hosted by Dr. Blasious Maakira Ruguri, the Chancellor of Adventist University of Africa. Using the story of Jesus asking the disciples to find two donkeys to untie for use in the triumphal entry, Dr. Ruguri encouraged the audience to “untie their donkeys,” implying to release funds for the cause of development and mission.

The Adventist University of Africa holds a Research Conference on Ethics

 Global Ethics conference speaker

The Adventist University of Africa, Kenya, recently held its maiden international research conference with the theme “The Global Ethics Crisis: Implications for the Adventist Church in Africa.”  It was held from September 4 – 6, 2014 on the University’s main campus in Nairobi.

The conference attracted over 120 participants from sister universities and institutions across Africa.  Approximately 30 theological and empirical papers as well as case studies about ethical issues facing the Church and members in Africa were presented and discussed. Keynote speakers included Dr. Stephen Bauer, who presented a paper challenging the way we understand ethics in the 10 commandments, Dr. Larry Lichtenwalter, challenged the participants to consider their character as what they are when they are alone, and Dr. Zacchaeus Mathema, who shared his concern that as Africa has moved away from taboos that govern behavior, they have lost their moral compass and entered into an age where anything goes.

As part of the closing ceremony, conference participants drafted an Ethics Statement and pledged their commitment to moral character and actions.
