Department of Missions and Evangelism


Evangelism is an incumbent task for all Christians being an aspect of the Great Commission. It presents Jesus Christ in the power and demonstration of the Holy Spirit in such a way that men put their faith in God by accepting Christ to be their Lord and Saviour. Also, Missions is the particular work for which one believes s/he has been sent into the world. It would have been assumed that anyone who goes out to witness Christ is a missionary, but it is not so. A missionary is one sent across his or her cultural and geographical boundaries to proclaim the gospel for a specific purpose.

To help Christians fulfill the Great Commission strategically, especially those called evangelists and missionaries; the academic curriculum of the Department of Missions and Evangelism of the Christ Apostolic Church Theological Seminary, Ile Ife, is designed to cater for contextual and missiological engagements in the 21st century. In addition, it is primarily designed to create awareness and stir the interest of students in cross-cultural and cross-geographical missions (Matthew 28:18-20; Mark 16:15; Acts 1:8-9).

The Department of Missions and Evangelism offers relevant courses that lead to the award of Certificate of Theology in Missions and Evangelism; Diploma in Theology in Missions and Evangelism; Bachelor of Theology in Missions and Evangelism; and, Master of Theology in Missiology.
