About Us

The Makazi Institute trains emerging leaders to speak into today’s global cultures with a distinctive biblical voice. Our aim is to bring Life to culture, and to bring culture to Life.

Makazi Institute identifies talented thinkers and practitioners at the post-graduate level. The institute equips them to analyze local and global cultural issues with a high level of critical thinking, cultlural engagement, and practical application at the community and national levels.


Through our one-year fellowship, budding thought leaders train with worldview experts from different cultures from around the globe.

It's our desire that our Fellows experience a strong sense of community while in residence, and that they return to their local contexts as distinguished thought-leaders and problem solvers in their chosen fields.
