This workshop aims to increase capacity and strengthen networking among African theologians in the LWF communion.

A further goal is to deepen the knowledge and understanding of Lutheran hermeneutics.

Participants also will improve their ability to carry out sound biblical interpretation and gender justice analysis informed by contextual realities.

The methodology will draw on the Department for Mission and Development’s mentorship program which seeks to empower young women scholars.
