“I am so much grateful to William Carey International University and to Church Army Africa for the opportunity they offered me to attend the meeting of a high caliber Christian International Conference. I had an opportunity during the conference to reflect on the nature of my work at Church Army via the vision of ICHE. The whole thing was an exciting exposure. I did learn much on the importance of “Christian Integration Learning” in line with God’s Kingdom agenda. I was helped to see how this approach to education if well applied in institutions is potential to bringing about transformation of individuals and societies. I will be able to advise our organization CAA and also Carlile College on the need to invest in developing a curriculum drawing from this integrative learning, as well as having strong professional operation systems for realizing institutional growth.” Timothy Kagina – Director of Missions, Church Army Africa
