It was a day of celebration for students of Continental Bible University College, a theological school located in the heart of Okota, Isolo area of Lagos State as the school, on Saturday August 11, 2018, held her fourth Convocation ceremony and launch of a book titled “Discipleship in times like this” authored by Bishop Dr. J. C Rosecollett Haastrup, the presiding Chancellor of the institution.
Bishop Rosecollett said the institution trains and imparts into ministers and leaders the skills needed to change the way things are done. “When God wants to change anything in the world,” she said, “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.”
“Words cannot express how I feel now,” the Bishop continued. “I am so happy that God is using us to fulfill this particular vision. Although it is capital intensive, it is a school that is self-sustaining, and God is still keeping it, year in, year out. Some of our students come from other churches, and some are even General Overseers in their ministries.” Continental Bible University Collage is a non-denominational Institution approved by world Educational Service, Canada, and the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN).
In his own speech, Dr. Stephen Etormi, a lecturer in the school said the requirement for entry for any intending student is from secondary school certificate to BSc holders. “The most important thing is the determination. This is not just a Bible college, it is unique in the sense that it is like a tertiary institution. It offers interactive class where issues affecting the society are discussed and solutions are provided biblically.”
