NIGERIA – JETS

The ECWA Theological Seminary, Jos (usually called JETS) in Nigeria is wholly owned and operated by the Evangelical Church Winning All. They are one of NetACT’s (https://netact.org.za/wordpress/) members.

In the early 1970s the need arose in ECWA to start a theological institution with the distinctive purpose of meeting the contextual needs of both the church and contemporary African society.

While discussing the theological education needs of ECWA, it was realised that one seminary could not meet ECWA’s future leadership training needs. A Curriculum Consultation Committee was formed comprising ECWA educators, church leaders, and Professor G.O.M. Tasie, the then Dean of the Faculty of Arts, University of Jos.

It met on a number of occasions at ECWA Headquarters between 1979 and 1980. Read more at https://www.jets.edu.ng/
