Dr JW Chinchen's Final Letter to His Supporting Churches

March 5, 2019

Below is a special letter my father wrote to his supporting churches shortly before leaving this world on February 26 for the glories of Heaven.  Your heart will be filled with joy as you read Dad's description of the blossoming fruit resulting from fifty years of labor in Africa, a continent he loved so much and claimed for God's purpose.  
With Love, Paul D Chinchen, President, African Bible Colleges

It is the week before Christmas and Thanksgiving is on our minds - thus this letter of appreciation to all the churches that faithfully continue to support us through the years.


ABC Alumni Impact


January 25, 2019

ABC is making an impact for Christ throughout Africa!
We want to celebrate what God is doing though our ABC graduates by sharing stories of these incredible #
changemakers with you!

From the beginning the purpose of African Bible Colleges was to support and enhance the work of evangelical ministries in Africa. Over the years we have partnered with some of the finest Christian organizations on the continent including Samaritans Purse, Navigators, YWAM, EE and Campus Crusade (known as Life Ministries in Africa).  At one time SIM Liberia (ELWA) employed over 30 ABC graduates. These ministries know that if you want a capable and committed Christian to run your organization, you come to ABC! 


Rev. Dr. John (Jack) William Chinchen 1924-2019

February 27, 2019

Rev. Dr. John (Jack) William  Chinchen, Founder of African Bible Colleges, went to be with our Lord and Savior on Tuesday, February 26, at 6:40 pm at the age of 94.  Dr. Chinchen died in Africa, where he served Christ for nearly 50 years as a pioneer missionary and one of the continent’s great trailblazers of Christian higher eduction.  

Dr. Chinchen is survived by his wife, Nell Barksdale Robertson Chinchen of Jackson, Mississippi, who co-founded Christian colleges and universities with Jack in Liberia (1976), Malawi (1989) and Uganda (2005) - and their seven children - Bill, Vann, Del, Lisa, Paul, Palmer and Marion Sue.  Jack has 39 grandchildren and 40 great grandchildren- along with, as Christ promised in Mark 10, tens of thousands of children who came to know and love God as a result of his 50 years of service in Africa from 1970-2019.
