The challenges facing theological education in Africa are many. These challenges can be overcome or at least reduced through networking, mutual exchange, and pooling of resources. Consequently, ACTEA promotes continental and inter-continental partnerships. ACTEA facilitates the networking of theological institutions for sharing vital resources, networks, and programmes so as to strengthen the capacity, vision, and mission of theological institutions. ACTEA encourages theological educators, faculty members, and students from different African institutions to collaborate in theological endeavours and invites member institutions to participate in the triennial global ICETE Consultations. ACTEA also shares pertinent information that enriches and builds institutions whenever it becomes available. ACTEA has partnership agreements with several like-minded organizations such as Theologians Without Borders, Langham Partnership International, Scholarleaders International, White Horse Inn, Theological Book Network and others.
