WELCOME TO GODMAN SOTERIA SEMINARY OF THEOLOGY
The chancellor, professor Bank-Ola Steve was a Consultant in Management and the MD/CEO of BOLSTE Associates Limited Nigeria before he was called into Ministry. By divine providence, he enrolled as a student in various famous, prestigious and frontline Seminaries in Nigeria and USA for his spiritual education as he was preparing for higher levels and greater effectiveness in his divine commission. He was trained, ordained and licensed as a Minister of Christ on 6th September, 2008 at United Bible University.
He is a Christian scholar and a teacher of the gospel with divine mandate to raising Christian leaders and building intellectual capacity for the body of Christ. He has been a visiting Professor to many Christian Universities and Christian Theological Seminaries in Nigeria and Abroad.
He is a Consultant in Church Management and Administration to many Churches, Christian Colleges, Universities and Theological Seminaries in Africa and around the world.
This would enhance quality leadership and congregation in the Church, promote better society and prepare the world for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
From the Dean
The faculty and staff of the Godman Soteria Academy of Theology are vitally interested in you. We are eager to hear of the ways in which you have experienced God’s leading in your life, and your commitment to serving Christ in ministry to others. In order to help you prepare for a vocation in ministry, the Godman Soteria Academy of Theology offers a fully integrated program of study that places theological education in the twin contexts of a strong university and vibrant partner-churches.
By “fully integrated” we mean that the process of a theological education at GSAT has been carefully planned with your needs in mind. Rather than a battery of independent and unrelated courses, the curriculum is planned around the three convictions that as a minister you will need to know certain things, you will need to be prepared to do a wide variety of practical tasks, and you will need to be a person of spiritual depth and maturity. Not only is each course in the curriculum planned around these needs, but each course is integrated with the other disciplines of the theological curriculum. Imagine having your preaching professor talking with you and your Old Testament professor about preaching on one of the psalms, or your mission professor meeting with your theology class from time to time, discussing the relationship between theology and evangelism. “Fully integrated” also means that there will be careful coordination between work in your core courses, your vocational track, and the experience you will have of doing ministry in your chosen vocational track under the supervision of someone who can be a mentor to you.
Our hope is to nurture the spiritual life and character of students in a community that values both authentic scholarship and authentic piety and to equip students for Christian leadership through personal mentoring, challenging courses, community worship, and the integration of scholarship and experience in the practical tasks of ministry
Godman Soteria Academy of Theology has a great deal to offer: the recognition of a highly respected School of Theology; a faculty of first-rate scholars who are committed Christians and committed to a “community” style of education; a network of partner-churches; an innovative, fully-integrated curriculum; and all of this at a highly affordable cost.
We want to covenant with you to do all we can to provide you with an education that will actually prepare you to accept a call to a full-time position in a church-related vocation, and to provide able Christian leadership throughout your career.
