For 36 years, Rev Dr Richard J. Gehman served in Kenya with the Africa Inland Church as missionaries of the Africa Inland Mission. He received his MA from Wheaton College, the Master of Divinity from Gordon Divinity School, and his Doctor of Missiology from Fuller Theological Seminary.
He taught at Scott Theological College, Kenya, and was Principal for eight years. He was the Coordinator for the Theological Advisory Group (TAG), a research and renewal group of the Africa Inland Church, Kenya; the Director of the Institute for Church Renewal; and the editor of the Africa Journal of Evangelical Theology (AJET) for eight years.
He is the author of several books including, Doing African Christian Theology in Biblical Perspective, Learning to Lead, The Making of a Christian Leader in Africa, and Passing it On: Lessons Learned in Life.
In 2002 he and his wife, Florence, retired in Central Florida, USA. They have two children and nine grandchildren.
By careful listening to Afrian voices and through diligent library research, Dr Gehman is now offering an excellent textbook for leadership courses in Bible colleges, seminaries, and graduate schools of theology withing Africa and a helpful read for missionaries preparing themselves for teaching within continental Africa. Such a book would have greatly enhanced my own teaching on leadership within Ethiopia. –E. Paul Balisky (PhD), former instructor at the Ethiopian Graduate School of Theology, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia
