The inter-denominational Christian college, which opened in 1992, is aiming to construct a three-storey building to facilitate post-graduate programmes.

“Before now, high-level Christian qualifications could only be obtained overseas,” said Zimbabwe Open University vice-chancellor, Dr Primrose Kurasha, in her address at the ceremony. “This made it very expensive, and the courses were not contextually relevant to Zimbabwe.”

DTC introduced a degree programme in 2007 under the ZOU, adding to existing diploma in Religious Studies. The courses aim to equip students with theological and practical ministry skills, and many of the students go on to become pastors and theological educators. The college now aims to raise $600,000 with the help of partners to construct the new building. The building will house a new library, three classrooms, a general purpose hall and a bigger computer laboratory, enabling the college to offer a Masters programme by 2013.

Those wishing to donate and partner in the project can contact DTC on +263- 4-705345 or email [email protected] or [email protected] (principal).
