World Mission Agency (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, realize their potential, nurture their latent abilities and become not only productive and fulfilled citizens but to be pacesetters in all areas of life.
In addition to the above, the network of nursery and primary schools, called Kingdom Heritage Model Schools were established in 2003 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, nurture their latent abilities to become not only productive fulfilled citizens, but to be pace-setters in all areas of life.
In 2002, World Mission Agency, in a graphic demonstration of its commitment to the provision of education at all levels, established Covenant University (CU).
