A Visionary Missionary


  • Isaiah O. Olatoyan


The importance of theological education in Christian missions cannot be overemphasized. It has far-reaching results on every aspect of the Christian ministry. Of course, one might be tempted to argue that the term, “theological education” is not written anywhere in the Bible. A careful reading of the Book of Matthew 28: 18-20, where we have the most detailed account concerning the mandate of the Great Commission can give us an answer. In this passage, we see that “theological education” is implied. For instance, the clauses, “Go and make disciples of all nations” and “teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you”, help us to know that theological training is an integral part of the Christian missions.
