Leadership Scholarship


More than 642+ pastors, evangelists, church leaders, missionaries and teachers are in training at WATS from more than 100 denominations and speaking scores of African languages. Through WATS, these pastors and church leaders have received training which they are using to touch lives of millions of people out there for Christ. WATS is hitting the nail squarely on the head of the two most crucial needs of the church in Africa:

  • Training of leadership
  • Discipleship of believers

However, it is noted that the average African church pastor has less than three months of formal theological training and yet some of them do not have the necessary financial as well as material resources to sponsor themselves to acquire theological training.

We seek individuals, churches and organizations who will come alongside West Africa Theological Seminary to ensure that we are enabled to enroll church leaders in Master of Divinity, MA in Biblical Studies, MA in Christian Leadership, MA in Intercultural Studies, MA in Christian Education and Doctor of Ministry in Transformational Leadership (DMin) through taking up sponsorship of one or more leaders in training.

The average cost of training a leadership scholar is N420,000/ $1,200 yearly). Our current goal is to raise at least 250 additional students’ scholarships by the end of the year.
