My name is Peter Shilaluka a 4th year student at Central Africa Baptist College. I am 47 years old and this year in June I clocked 10 years in pastoral ministry. Having realized my limitations in the area of feeding the flock that God has placed under my care I started looking for a Bible college within our country that would give me a quality theology that I needed.
During this time I had a privilege of offering counseling sessions to people living with HIV/AIDS at Dawn Trust Community Center. It was during that time that the coordinator Ms. Hedwig Muller, a former member of Ndola Baptist Church sponsored me to attend CABU July 2011 Pastors block class under the theme Pastoral Counseling. Upon attending the block class I was impressed with the Presidents remarks on the vision, values, and mission statement of CABU. From that time I sensed that the Lord was leading me to study at CABU but I needed someone I trust who would tell me more about the colleges doctrine. The Lord again used Ms. Hedwig Muller to invite Pastor Sandala Mwanja who was by then a CABU student to come at our institution to speak at the Youth conference and the preaching was Christ centered and it just answered all the questions I had concerning the school.
From the time I started school up to date CABU has proved to be a hardworking college whose every action is purposeful. The colleges prominence in sound doctrine, character formation, and discipline is well known to many denominations and people in our country. The uniqueness about CABU to other colleges is that it trains Servant-Leaders/Pastors not bosses. The college has really shaped my theology as well as my spiritual life. I have learned how to interpret Bible passages in their context without violating the other scriptures. It is due to this remarkable approach to Scriptures that has made people from all walks of life to start heading to CABU for study.
I would recommend anyone who has been called by God to come and study at CABU without any reservation.
