The Institute of Bible & Ministry is a continuing theological programme that was conceived back in the mid-1990’s by a number of AIM missionaries who were concerned for the continuing theological development of the pastors of the Africa Inland Church Tanzania (AICT) after they had left Bible College.

The AICT celebrated its centenary in 2009. It was originally founded in the northern regions of Tanzania around Lake Victoria by missionaries of Africa Inland Mission.  In the last few decades there has been concerted migration by the Church into southern non-traditional AICT areas. The Institute of Bible and Ministry seeks to serve these newly formed churches of the AICT Coastal diocese over an area that is twice the size of the UK.

Sanga Sanga Retreat Centre

The Institute of Bible & Ministry in Tanzania was originally a programme of seminars held in rented rooms, but it now has its home at the ever-growing site at Sanga Sanga.

The development of a Retreat Centre at Sanga Sanga is designed to provide a strategic platform to encourage and support Tanzanian pastors and evangelists. The vision is that the facilities will provide a place where they can engage with indigenous theological, cultural and development issues that confront them.

'It was He who gave some to be apostles, some to be prophets, some to be evangelists, and some to be pastors and teachers, to prepare God's people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.'  

 Ephesians 4:11-13
