Bangui Evangelical School of Theology (BEST)

Mtelo Ministries has partnered with the Bangui Evangelical School of Theology (BEST) in Bangui, Central African Republic to educate, train and disciple current and future leaders in Francophone, Africa.

BEST offers undergraduate degrees in Systematic Theology, Old Testament, New Testament, Missions and Bible Translation.
