Stephen Crupi is teaching at Bishop Allison Theological College, the theological college for the Diocese of Yei of the Episcopal Church of South Sudan. Stephen’s main area of teaching is biblical studies, and he additionally teaches classes in fields such as world religions and English composition. Bishop Allison is a college designed to support the South Sudanese churches by providing theological education for local pastors and church leaders. The majority of pastors in South Sudan have not received any formal biblical education. But Bishop Allison is committed to providing church leaders with a theological foundation to assist them as they engage their churches and communities with the Gospel. Due to the present conflict in South Sudan, Bishop Allison has temporarily moved to Arua district in northwestern Uganda and is serving the South Sudanese refugees who are currently living in Uganda.
Stephen acquired a bachelor’s degree in biblical studies from Cedarville University, and as part of his undergrad coursework he studied abroad at Uganda Christian University in Mukono, Uganda. He was able to return to East Africa as part of his Master of Divinity program at Duke Divinity School as he interned at Bishop Allison while it was still located in Yei, South Sudan. Upon Stephen’s graduation from Duke, the leadership at Bishop Allison invited Stephen to return to the college to become a full-time instructor. Stephen has been teaching at Bishop Allison since September 2017.
