About the Lecture
Many Christians are aware that Christianity has been growing in prominence in the majority world, but there's a common misconception that the diversity of the global church is a phenomenon of the modern world—that Christianity became global by going from the West to "the rest." In this lecture, historian Vince Bantu will explore the multiethnic roots of early Christianity and the theological implications of the diverse nature of Christian origins.
About the Speaker
Vince Bantu is the Ohene (President) of the Meachum School of Haymanot and is Assistant Professor of Church History and Black Church Studies at Fuller Theological Seminary. Vince’s assignment from the Lord is to proclaim that the Bisrat (Gospel) of Yeshua is for all nations, tribes and tongues and to do this by teaching on the earliest history of Christianity in Africa and Asia. Vince is the author of A Multitude of All Peoples (IVP), Gospel Haymanot (UMI), and The Bisrat (Jude 3 Project). Vince is also the Ohene (President) of the Society of Gospel Haymanot (SGH), an academic society of theological Gospelism—Afro-rooted theology committed to the universal Lordship of Jesus, biblical authority and the liberation of the oppressed. Vince also serves as the Katabi (Editor) of the publication of SGH—the Haymanot Journal.
Dr. Bantu is teaching The Early Church in Africa and Asia from July 3 to 7 as part of Regent’s 2023 Summer Programs.
