C Rosecollett Haastrup, the Presiding Chancellor of the institution.
Haastrup said the institution trains ministers and leaders skills needed to change the way things are done. “When God wants to change anything in the world He goes for a leader. It is important for us to train these people because when they get to positions of authority in any aspect of life, they will be able to deliver God’s mandate”, she said adding“Words cannot express how I feel now. I am so happy that God is using us to fulfill this particular vision. Although it’s capital intensive, it’s a school that is self-sustaining and God is still sustaining it. Some of our students come from other churches and some are even General Overseers in their ministries.”
