Spiritual Vitality Core Value of the Community
Kumi University is one of the fastest growing Christian Universities in Africa. Her great reputation comes as a result of the centrality of Christ in all aspects. Worship takes a central place in the University and that makes Chaplaincy to be an important department that shapes the life and identity of the University.
Chaplaincy aims at enhancing the Christian values among the various categories of people who join the community. For the unbelievers we seek to draw them to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. To the believers, we aim at disciple-ling them for spiritual growth. And to the “mature believers” we equip them for ministry. In all this we purpose to maintain spiritual vitality and the Christian identity of Kumi University.
The chaplaincy exhorts all members of the University to profess the lord Jesus Christ and show soundness in faith and practice of Christian doctrine. Christian outreaches are also organized at least once in a semester. Students are mobilized to willingly participate actively in this. There is also annual Easter Conference where a limited number of students from local sister tertiary institutions are invited.
We provide opportunities for the community to worship God throughout the week. The services are both contemporary and traditional to cater for our diverse community (Youth and adults from various denominations). The music is a mixture of Hymns, contemporary and traditional songs in the various languages. Our worship is vibrant, educative, uplifting and with inspiring preaching.
Discipleship / Bible Study
There is a Bible exposition for people to learn the deeper truth of God’s word. We have groups meeting once a week for 1 hour for Bible Study and discussions through the Bible time book. These groups comprise of the Administrative Staff, Academic Staff, Support Staff and the Students’ Body. The university has a member in charge of these groups to clear matters of spiritual growth.
