ADVANCING AFRICAN THEOLOGICAL EDUCATION THROUGH INTERCULTURAL TEAM TEACHING
AbstractContextualization concerns have dominated the conversation concerning the development of African theological education in recent years. However, as the core of the Christian Church continues to shift to the global South and the discussion of contextualization advances, the need remains for developing methodologies which diligently preserve biblical-theological understandings of church leadership and Christian formation. This article contends that Hae-Won Kim’s pedagogical model of intercultural theological team-teaching (ITT) may be employed as an effective strategy for non-African missionaries and African scholars to cooperate in developing a framework for equipping indigenous pastors which maintains a sound biblical-theological foundation even as it contributes to the development of a comprehensive, contextualized African theology. The article discusses aspects of practical application and challenges which may accompany a collaborative effort to implement ITT, as well as potential benefits which may accompany such as effort.
