Abstract
This thesis presents a continuing education curriculum for Protestant church planters in Maputo, Mozambique. It assumes that healthy churches in urban Africa are both theologically and contextually reflective. The project opens laying biblical foundations from Hebrew 12:23. Contextual factors are then presented: urbanization, Maputo's history, globalization in Maputo, cultural contours, and a community analysis of one urban neighborhood. Six contextual theology/ministry attempts are analyzed. Fifteen theological institutions are summarized and the results of a survey of church planters are then presented. The project concludes with a theologically reflective continuing education guidebook for church planters given the contextual factors presented.
