WATS serves one of the fastest-growing segments of the Christian Church in the world, and it focuses squarely on the two greatest needs of the African Church: leadership development and discipleship of believers.   We offer two BA programs, five Masters’ programs and a Doctor of Ministry program.

 

Classes in these programmes come in the traditional semester session and the Long Holiday. We also offer a weekend schedule to accommodate those students who work during the week and want to study on Friday nights and Saturday.

 

WATS is alive with activities that complement the student’s education and provide a break from classroom routine. Some of these activities aim at giving the students opportunities to put to use skills and principles learned in the classroom.

 

The academic programmes at WATS seek to fill your mind, warm your heart, and equip your hands. A mind filled with biblical, theological, and historical truth serves as a solid foundation for wisdom in leadership.

Welcome

West Africa Theological Seminary began in 1989 in Imo State to train men and women for holy living, for carrying the Gospel to the unreached, and for catalyzing spiritual awakening. The academic programmes lie central to the achievement of that mission. Six hundred men and women from a number of West African countries and multiple denominations engage in academic and personal spiritual formation in preparation for Christian leadership.
