A Brief History of Pan Africa Christian University in Kenya

PAC was founded by its prime sponsor, the Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada (PAOC), and began its operations in 1978 as a Bible College.

As a mission-minded organization, the PAOC began sending missionaries to numerous African countries in the 1920s.

As a result of their efforts, a strong National church has emerged in Kenya and surrounding countries.

Continentally, these churches are generally known as the Pentecostal Assemblies of God (PAG).

Through the efforts of indigenous pastors, missionaries, and evangelists, some PAG fellowships have grown to over 3000 churches.

Nairobi, with its central location and accessibility, was a choice place for PAC to be situated.

A venue on the north-east outskirts of the city became available in 1978 to the PAOC, who secured the property for the establishment of a degree-granting institution.

PAC opened for classes on May 2, 1978, with 6 students and has grown to over 300 students.

PAC faculty is composed of African nationals as well as non-African instructors seconded by PAOC.

In addition to its full-time lecturing faculty, the University has a number of part-time faculty who lecture in their fields of expertise.

Full-time faculty usually has both pastoral experience and post-graduate degrees.

In 1985, the Commission for Higher Education (CHE) was established to advance university education in Kenya, with particular reference to the coordination of long-term planning, staff development, scholarship and the physical development of universities in Kenya.

On this basis, CHE registered PAC as an existing university in 1989.

Since that time, PAC has been working with the CHE towards government accreditation with the Ministry of Education.

The PAC curriculum for the degrees offered was officially approved by the CHE as of 2006.

Pan Africa Christian University was officially awarded a charter on February 15, 2008 by Mwai Kibaki, the then President of the Kenya.

PAC became the ninth private University to be chartered in Kenya.
