Rev. Dr. Timothy Mncube received an honorary doctorate from the Martin Luther King School of Bible and Theology; in scholarship with the International University College Faith Theological Seminary in Finland.

“We decided to honor Dr. Mncube for his achievement after he received an honorary doctorate. We felt as a team that he simply could not be honored by a university in Finland and not in his country of origin. I then decided to gather the people he had relationships with who had had a positive impact on their lives and informed them of my plans to celebrate Dr. Mncube.

“They bought into my idea of ​​honoring him for his accomplishments by getting a doctorate and having had a mission that went beyond the chair,” said Sosibo, who added that Dr Mncube had dedicated himself to the community work rather than the priesthood.

He is the former Father and Rector of St Paul’s Anglican Church in Mohlakeng.

He was then taken to higher heights which saw him become a priest and rector at St Paul’s Anglican Church in White City Jabavu and also served as director of the community center in Ipeleng.

He resides in Finsbury but has positively impacted those in and around the entire Randfontein community.
