Overview of Africa Theological Seminary:
Africa Theological Seminary, ATS (formerly ICM Seminary) is an inter-denominational Seminary partnering with International Christian Ministries (ICM).  ICM is a Non-Governmental Christian Organization that focuses on equipping Christian leaders through informal and formal trainings throughout the Sub-Saharan Africa. 
ICM currently operates in eight African countries, that is, Nigeria, Ghana, Liberia, D.R. Congo, Burundi, Uganda, Tanzania, and Kenya. ICM has two divisions: Seminary division (ATS) and seminar or workshop division, Church Leadership Institute (CLI). 
Currently, ATS offers the following study programs within its two academic departments of Theology and Counseling: under Theology Department ATS offers, BA in Bible and Theology; Diploma in Theology; and Certificate in Christian Ministry. Under Counseling Department, ATS offers BA in Counseling Psychology, Diploma in Counseling Psychology and Certificate in Counseling Psychology.  Plans are underway to begin BA in Organizational Leadership and MA in Transformational Leadership.  
Since its founding in 1993 ATS has been consistently driven by the objective to “train ministers who are already involved in ministry,” and for this reason, ATS has continued to offer all its study programs through an in-service model. It is the Seminary’s primary purpose to further disciple and equip Christian leaders for effective service in their respective stations of ministerial callings.
All ATS students involved in various ministry leadership roles in their churches, schools, organizations, or communities. These students come from over forty diverse Church denominations across Kenya and a few from Uganda and Southern Sudan.
ATS has the following four key objectives that guide its overall operations:

  • ATS works with Christian leaders who are currently active in leadership in their churches, ministries, and communities;
  • ATS develops and implements in-service and parallel programs designed to allow Christian leaders to continue working in their ministries while pursuing studies.
  • It is the goal of ATS to see every learner spiritually transformed to live more like Jesus Christ.
  • It is the goal of the Seminary to empower Christian leaders to become agents of positive change and development in their churches, ministries, and communities.

--ATS’s has designed its curriculum to include Field Assignment and Field Practicum that allow learners to relate what they learn in lecture rooms to the context of church and society.
Objectives of ATS Curriculum: 
The curriculums are designed to:
1. Provide the necessary skills and knowledge needed.
2. Equip Counselors, Pastors and Leaders with tools for effective service in the society.
3. Emphasize integration of Psychology and Theology on  matters regarding current issues facing the church and society.
Flexibility of ATS Study Programs
ATS has intentionally designed in-service study programs in which students come to the Seminary for residential learning no more than 40% of their time in any given year.  In implementing such design, ATSK offers all her Courses around block Course teachings. 
The following in-service design programmes are in operation at ATSK for BA programs. The periods indicate the duration of their residential Seminary training:

  • School Holiday programs—they meet for 3 to 4 weeks, 3 times a year (April, August, and December). This program targets Christian Leaders who are full-time School teachers, or School Chaplains;
  • Ordinary Block Courses—they meet for 5 weeks, 3 times in a year;
  • Evening Classes—they meet 3 days a week as scheduled. This program is designed for Christian Leaders residing around Kitale town and are all day scholars;
  • Weekend Classes—Coming Soon (Still at Design Stages).

In these designs, each class will take up to 3 Courses in a given term because all our
Courses are offered in Block format. Thus for BA, a 3 hour Course will take 10 days and a 2 hour Course will take 8 days.

Lectures take place from 8 am to 1 pm with break time of 1hr, 30 minutes for tea break and extra-curricular activities, such as accountability peer groups, small groups, etc. The rest of the afternoon and evening is dedicated to revision, research and preparation for upcoming lectures. The library closes at 10pm.
