 Keeping Faith And Fortitude Alive

As I was saying, when COVID-19 hit Liberia, the dream almost got scattered. However, leaders of the church kept faith and courage alive when a number of constructive steps were taken. Clearly, these constructive measures are paying off today. Among them is the setting up of a 17-member Organizing Committee on March 16, 2022, to strategize and work out the requisite modalities to operate a full-fledged faith-based   university.

I also recall a gathering of the laity of the Assemblies of God Church at Cavalry Temple AG Church in 2022, where the idea to set up  University was reinforced, with the leadership of the AGL admonishing each member of the Church to contribute one month of their monthly salaries.

At the laity meeting held at Calvary Temple AG, the General Superintendent of AGL, Rev. Dr. Abenda F. Tamba said: “This is not my project, but God’s. I met the plan on the table and we are trying to implement it because we believe in continuity,” he disclosed. In September 2022, a fund drive for the process was launched. The 17-member committee wasted no time, when on 29th March 2022, it developed a five-year work plan.  All of these efforts led to the AGU being accredited by the National Commission on Higher Education on 1st November, 2023.

                                                               Diversification

As part of efforts to ensure diversification of programs at the AGU and to further expand its activities, two additional colleges have been added to the previously run College of Bible and Theology. They include business and liberal arts.

Again, the birth of the Assemblies of God University (AGU) in Liberia is a brilliant idea, taking into consideration the roles leaning institutions of this category play in modern societies (pioneers in teaching and learning), etc.
