Abstract

Although the numbers and influence of the Reformed Churches in South Africa seem to be dwindling at the moment, they still have a precious heritage which should be passed on to Africa: the reformed faith and reformed theology:. Christianity is growing apace in Africa, but unfortunately this is often a superficial, nominal Christianity. A great need and desire for thorough, biblical, theological training does exist. This need should be answered by the Reformed Churches by providing theological courses for extension training at four academic levels, especially for equipping leaders of the independent African churches, not with the purpose of making proselites, but primarily with the purpose of biblical leaching where it is needed. These courses should be made available at inter alia the Potchefstroom University for Christian Higher Education, which is already involved in the Timoteus correspondence course.
