The Evangelical Seminary of West Africa (ESWA) is now just 18 months old under the leadership of Dr. Rick Calenberg. The seminary is located near ELWA junction, only a few miles from the ELWA campus in Paynesville. ESWA’s objective is to offer a complete graduate school program of theological studies leading to the students receiving a master’s degree in divinity (MDiv). Rick hopes that ELWA will serve the English-speaking students in West Africa for many years and will provide them with the theological training that is needed to serve their congregations. ESWA’s challenges are many. Rick and his team are raising the funds to build the campus. In addition, the administrators are setting up administrative systems to manage this graduate school. At the same time, there are now about 40 students enrolled at the seminary. The 1st graduation is now scheduled for June 2021. The quote shown here represents the enthusiasm and the desire of the students in pursuing their studies at ESWA.
ESWA Student Testimonial
"In a very short space of time, my personal and ministry life is taking a definite shape. ESWA (Evangelical Seminary of West Africa) is the best thing that is happening right now in the Liberian Christian Community. I have never been involved in a very high intensity study culture as compared to the time I have spent in ESWA. The seminary is not just featuring highly credentialed lecturers but also a balanced gospel view with a high view of Scripture. I can say without a reservation that my soul has found a theological home. I am becoming a better pastor because of what you are doing with us at ESWA. I am grateful."
The ambition and drive of these Liberian divinity students motivates the EMAUSA Board to support the construction of the ESWA campus. In our 2020 fundraising goals EMAUSA pledged to raise ($50,000) to assist in building its campus. Wouldn’t you like to participate in this program to encourage these divinity students and to assist in the construction of the ESWA campus?
“To glorify the Lord Jesus Christ by producing Godly servant-leaders for West Africa; to serve the church, fulfill the Great Commission and transform the world. (Matthew 28:18-20).” ESWA is the only interdenominational, evangelical graduate seminary in Liberia.
