The different arms through which we spread the gospel
About Olivet Academy
Olivet Academy is the life development arm of Olivet Bible Church that commenced in October 2007 with 30 students who were admitted into the first level of the academy, Foundation Truth Studies. The academy aims to impact students’ lives in a manner that no graduate of Olivet Academy fulfils Hosea 7:8b (Ephraim is a cake not turned).
The life development process is carried out through the academy’s five schools: The Foundation Truth Studies (FTS), Life Education Advancement Program (LEAP), Life Impact Ministerial Academy (LIMA), Evangelism, Missions, and Outreach School (EMOS) and Life Impact Development Academy (LIDA). The academy as well as each school, is coordinated by a team of vibrant and anointed men and women of God who are committed to the vision of Olivet Bible Church, inspiring the saints, impacting the world.
Through well articulated teaching methods, innovative guidance through the word of God and spiritual leadership, we aim to equip people for leadership positions in the church and in Nigeria generally – Men and women whose character and action reflect Olivet Bible Church’ core values:
Righteousness, Excellence, Love, Integrity, and Teamwork. Ultimately, we seek to contribute to the process of solving Nigeria’s and, by extension, Africa’s problem of Leadership.
