Theological College of Central Africa

Theological College of Central Africa

Ndola

In 1978, the Evangelical Fellowship of Zambia members indicated a desire for an undergraduate level theological college.

In November 1980, the first Board of Governors met in Lusaka and established a constitution; EFZ approved the proposal in May 1981. In January 1982, the Theological College of Central Africa (TCCA) opened its doors with 14 post-secondary students and in the same year received application forms from the Accrediting Council for Theological Education in Africa (ACTEA).

On Saturday 28 May 1983, the college was officially opened by Member of Central Committee Mr. Alex Shapi. The college’s purpose is to provide a theological education with internationally recognized academic accreditation, and also to equip students for practical ministry. It offers a four year degree in Theology and a three year diploma on Theology, both accredited by the Accrediting Council for Theological Education in Africa (ACTEA)

In May 1985, the college received an official visit by an ACTEA team and was granted accreditation (with notations) for its diploma and degree programmes in May 1986. TCCA was re-accredited by ACTEA in 1996 and 2007.

It is now known as the Evangelical University.
