Christ’s University in Pacific opens in Tonga

The Tokaikolo Church in Tonga has opened a new university in Nukuʻalofa today known as Christ’s University in Pacific.

The new Christian campus is operated at the church’s Maseia Plaza building.

It  was previously named as Lavengamalie Christian University (USA) after it was first established  in Palo Alto, USA in 2003.

“The mission of the university is to provide a tertiary education program with a Christian world-view which will equip students for future Christian service”.

The founder is president of the church, Rev. Dr Liufau Vailea Saulala and CUP is a division of Tokaikolo Education System with a history of 36 years since  it was first established in 1979.

The word “Tokaikolo” was coined from the Bible, “The Lord is in your midst” (Zephaniah 3:15).

Sometimes when a business is growing, it needs a little help.

Right now Kaniva News provides a free, politically independent, bilingual news service for readers around the world that is absolutely unique. We are the largest New Zealand-based Tongan news service, and our stories reach Tongans  wherever they are round the world. But as we grow, there are increased demands on Kaniva News for translation into Tongan on our social media accounts and for the costs associated with expansion. We believe it is important for Tongans to have their own voice and for Tongans to preserve their language, customs and heritage. That is something to which we are strongly committed. That’s why we are asking you to consider sponsoring our work and helping to preserve a uniquely Tongan point of view for our readers and listeners.
