The activities of Teofilo Kisanji University (TEKU) former (MOTHECO), can be traced as far back as the 1960s when the Moravian Church in Tanzania (MTC) sought to establish the Theological institution with a view of training pastors in Chunya, District Mbeya Region. The college offered a general certificate in theology. Late in the 70s, the theological college (MOTHECO) was shifted to Mbeya town where the condition was very conducive for learning and services readily available. The college was built on a 35 acre plot where new buildings were erected by the help of Moravian donors from abroad. In the early 1990s, an idea dawned among the leaders of the Church to start offering a Bachelor of Divinity (BD) at MOTHECO instead of the General Certificate.
The Faculty of Theology is limited to build the Kingdom of God within and outside the university through a balanced and integrated model of pastoral ministry that includes proclaiming the everlasting gospel but taking into consideration that /Tanzania is a pluralistic country. And in spite of the many religious existing in the country, they all work on patriotic love and hence help enhance peace in the country thereby rating Tanzania as one of the most peaceful nations in the world.
