NetACT Africa AGM and Theology and Development Workshop will take place from 2-7 July 2017 in Kenya at the campus of Scott Christian University (SCU, a NetACT member), at Machakos, to the south-east of Nairobi.
The main purposes of the meeting are:
- A workshop on theology and development (Community Development) – the second in our three-year project on this theme.
- The Annual General Meeting of the NetACT networks.
- Networking with our Associate Members and other representatives of international organizations. The Associate Members are organizations or churches that support our endeavours. We will, as an example, report on developments at the World Communion of Reformed Churches after their Secretary of Theology retired.
- We will introduce you to the Multi-School Library Resource Project that has the promise to internet access to a multitude of internet info for all our institutions. We also have the assurance that we will be able to train the librarians of our institutions to use the NetACT internet portal. We have a firm promise that the librarian-training will be funded – travel, board and lodging! We need to do the detail planning of this project with the NetACT Board at the AGM. The training of librarians will take place AFTER creating the portal. At this meeting only a select number of library-related people will gather with us to do the detail planning of the process.
