Nigerian Preacher Training (NIATS)

Greetings in the Precious name of Jesus Christ. 

The NIATS/BVBI community is on vacation now to resume academic activities next month, October. Before their second semester exams, both the staff and students went on a three day evangelism outreach at Afikpo in Ebonyi state. The outing was intensive but there was no immediate baptisms. Some prospects (three persons) attended the worship.

The 2023/2024 academic session will take off from next month, October. We have conducted the first entrance examination and have arranged for a supplementary exam in order to get more candidates.

The Board has approved a weekend programme to accommodate those who did not have all the time for the regular system. A preliminary programme has also been approved to take care of those who are deficient with their entry requirements.

This is in our efforts to find a way to remove the impendiments before many of the brethren who have zeal to serve as a gospel minister . 

The 2023 NIATS annual lectureship is slated for the 14th to the 16th of December. In order to save cost the Board has decided to shift the graduation to next year for we have only 7 students this year. The pictures.

The first – the Director preaching at the burial of one elderly sister who died at the age of 95yrs . The second and third the evangelism outreach at Afikpo. The fourth picture- the NIATS/BVBI students taking their second semester exams. The fifth and sixth pictures- the burial of our students’ leader who died after a brief sickness. May his rest in peace.
