    • Africa International University is a chartered Christian university which has been Influencing the world since 1983 when it was started as Nairobi Evangelical Graduate School of Theology (NEGST) through the vision of the Association of Evangelicals in Africa (AEA).The goal at that time was to provide training for pastors beyond the basic certificate and diploma levels. This was informed by the envisioned danger of the coming crisis of 'Christo-paganism' in African Christianity without African Biblical theologians who had advanced training to provide leadership in combating this trend. The ultimate objective was not simply the enrichment of the scholar, but of the ordinary believer in the church who was often poorly taught and vulnerable to a confused understanding of Christian truth. The establishment of an evangelical graduate school of theology was seen as a viable instrument to that end.

      AIU was awarded a university charter by the government of Kenya in March 2011and has continued to develop undergraduate programs, particularly in business, ICT, Development studies and counselling psychology.

      Africa International university is committed to God’s mission and connected to His world. We seek to be a learning community that practices loving God and neighbour with heart and mind. We encourage staff and students to cultivate both the desires of the heart and mind. Our education perspective embraces disciplined, rigorous critical thinking and allows for the nurturing of relationships, creativity, and innovation for fun and laughter. We are committed to offer education with a passion for God, God’s word and God’s world, passion for truth, integrity, service, and passion for excellence, justice, beauty, life, and creation.

      Education with passion seeks to have students explore their God-given abilities and inspire their personal growth and development. Critical to this pursuit then is a core university teaching staff that strives to integrate the evangelical faith with their disciplines.
