A University for Mozambique and the World
“Each day we are surrounded by students who possess a radiant potential for scholarship in service to a better future. The time to give them wings is now.”
- Heidi Baker
When we came to Mozambique twenty-five years ago, it was our intention not only to serve the poorest of the poor, but to contribute in every way toward the blessing of the nation. As we seek to uplift the spiritual and material health of our communities, we recognize a responsibility to nurture the God-given gifts of our students, friends, and neighbors. This solemn responsibility has led us to the creation of this institution of higher education in Cabo Delgado — built in the firm hope that it will grow into a center of light and learning for all the peoples of the world.
“My goal is that they may be encouraged in heart and united in love, so that they may have the full riches of complete understanding, in order that they may know the mystery of God, namely, Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.”
– COL. 2:2-3
The need for higher education in Mozambique is desperately needed as less than 1% of the adults have a college degree. We seek to raise a generation marked by stature and excellence.
Be exalted, O God, above the heavens; let your glory be over all the earth (Psa. 108:5). ...whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God (1 Cor. 10:31).
We envision an environment of intensive Christian formation wherein God’s presence is acknowledged and invited into every part of university life. Indeed, we want more than just to offer a Christian perspective in education — we want to nurture a community that is an active catalyst of renewal, a true spiritual center of service to all nations, fueled at its heart by faith, humility, and the everlasting love of God.
