Education

WMA is making significant contributions to education in Nigeria. It established the Faith Academy in 1999, a model Christian college geared towards raising pupils with a testimony of academic excellence and spiritual prowess. The Academy’s working team is made up of carefully selected, spirit-filled professional men and women of proven integrity and outstanding teaching, administrative and technical capabilities. Their overall objectives are to help each child discover his or her purpose, release their potential, nurture their latent abilities to become not only productive and fulfilled citizens but to be pacesetters in all areas of life. Currently, twenty more secondary schools have been established; of which are Seven (7) full boarding schools, Thirteen (13) Day Schools and one (1) day and boarding school. Two (2) additional Faith Academy Day Secondary Schools shall commence operation by September within Lagos Metropolis.

In addition to the above, the network of nursery and primary schools, called Kingdom Heritage Model Schools, were established from 2002 across the cities of Nigeria and some other African nations. The overall objectives are to help each child discover his or her purpose, release his/her potentials and nurture their latent abilities; to become not only productive fulfilled citizens, but to be pace-setters in all areas of life. Today, the KHMS are one hundred and forty seven (147) across thirty (30) out of the thirty six (36) states in Nigeria, and six (6) in other African countries.

In 2002, World Mission Agency, in a graphic demonstration of its commitment to the provision of education at all levels, established Covenant University (CU). Of note is the fact that seasoned Christian intellectuals and professors with proven academic excellence and international acclaim make up the faculty of the University. The premises of Covenant University is an array of architectural master pieces consisting of the largest Centre for Learning Resources (university library), college buildings, a 3,000 seat capacity Student Chapel, Professors’ Village, Staff quarters, Students Halls of residences, etc.

In addition to other distinctions and awards on the university, the Chancellor and the Vice Chancellor, the university has been named as NEPAD bioinformatics research centre. In July 2006, Covenant University graduated its pioneer students, and continues to produce some of the world’s best graduates. This is in line with the prophetic mandate of 1 of 10 in 10 by the year 2022. To God alone be the Glory.

A second University, the Landmark University (LMU), was added in 2011. A University with an agrarian mandate, in its few years of existence, has begun to make waves by becoming the second best private University in Nigeria. LMU has 3 colleges: Agricultural Science, Science & Engineering and Social Science & Business. The first set from these colleges graduated in 2014.
