This new project in 2015 will offer practical and emotional support to the wives of the students at Kerina College. Wives will be taught new skills and literacy and in turn encouraged to build relationships with one another and improve their social and emotional support circles.

Through this project it is hoped that the wives will be able to further participate in community life in their future parishes and share their learnings with those communities.

Kerina Evangelist College has been in existence for over 28 years. It started as a Diocesan Institution and slowly gained recognition as a Provincial Institution. Kerina enrols a maximum of 10 students per year who complete a two year program in Theology, Pastoral Care, liturgy, church history and leadership.

Many students’ wives and their families live with them but there is limited support. Kerina has trained over 300 Evangelists who are scattered over Anglican Church of PNG (ACPNG). While many are serving faithfully, some are less effective because they lack support from their families and networks. Through this basic training the wives will further support their husbands’ ministry.
