Mission for Advancing Theological education (MATE) was born in 1986 out of one man’s love for the Lord Jesus Christ and a desire to see Bible Schools and Seminaries better equipped with much needed books that could enrich the lives of men and women preparing for ministry.

Friends Committed to Caring (FCC), established 9 years later to complement what was already being done, is a Health Care Ministry which provides Health Education, Training and Clinical services.

Established in 2014, 2EQUIP is to compliment the transitioning of MATE/FCC to E-learning in areas where we serve using a Learning Management System (LMS) that will provide elementary and secondary education, training, as well as health skills to individuals in remote areas in Africa and south America, the regions served by MATE.
