Rev. Ikenna C. Ezeoke is presently a lecturer in the Biblical Studies department of the Seminary. He has been on the Seminary’s staff since 2011 when he doubled as the Chief Protocol Officer and the International Students’ Liaison Officer. He joined the faculty in 2013 at the completion of his master’s program.
Ikenna received a bachelor’s degree in Theology with emphasis on Missions and Evangelism in 2010 and a master’s degree in Biblical Studies/Old Testament in 2013, both from West Africa Theological Seminary. His thesis focused on ‘Biblical Response to Corruption: An Exegesis of Nehemiah 5:14-18 and its Implication on the Nigerian Church’. He bagged the Seminary’s Best Graduating Student Award for Practical Ministry in 2011.
He is passionate about training not just Nigerian but African pastors as well in preparation for Christian ministry—a passion born out of the realization over the years that most Nigerian pastors lack any form of formal theological training. He also moves beyond the four walls of the classroom to be practically involved in cross cultural ministries.
Ikenna was ordained into the priesthood of the Church of Nigeria Anglican Communion in 2013 and has been serving as a priest since then. He is committed to the great commission especially via preparing leaders for the final harvest.
He is married to Juliet and together they are blessed with a son.
