Original Project Scope
The purpose of the Université de l'Alliance au Congo
- formerly FACTEB - is to train professionals as Christians who consider their work as a ministry and a service to their churches and the Congolese society. The school started in 1976 as a Bible School and developed quickly into a fully-accredited theological faculty training leaders at the Bachelor and Masters level. Today, alumni serve in churches and in government postitions throughout the country as well as in other African countries.
eMi Canada prepared a master plan for the University in 2008, and construction on Phase I - the library and married student housing - is almost complete (Phase 1 project). As part of UAC University's ongoing campus development program, eMi is now sending a second team to develop building plans for the next four components - a new guesthouse, a new administrative building, a new teacher's residence, and a new conference centre. These components will help UAC University work towards being self-supporting and meet the tremendous need for Christian leadership in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
* Note that Boma is in the stable far west of DR Congo, far from the current unrest in Goma which is in the far east of the country.
