It is a key indictor of improved education for students when faculty are grown in their understanding through higher studies. Their research topics are relevant, and often they are the first to write on an aspect of ministry or mission in their country. Take Dr Alfred Sebahene’s case for example. He writes: “Local Leaders’ support to me for my PhD set me up for leadership, not just at St John’s University theology department, but also to speak into our national Tanzanian needs for integrity in business and government. The doctorate was critical in preparing me for my role in supporting affiliate colleges, especially with quality assurance matters.”
