COGIBC is founded on our protestant, evangelical and pentecostal heritage.

COGIBC offers Christian education with an academic path at an accredited institution.

COGIBC is a religious faith-based institution where we focus on equipping and training of Pastors, Lay Pastors, Missionaries, and people with the calling of God on their lives. Our main purpose and aim is to develop and mentor students so that they may understand ministry and church management in a redefined way.

As a student you will find that all modules have been developed for a Christian Education that will equip you for future ministry, and will help you to develop and become a successful Church Leader that will be to the benefit of our Lord’s Kingdom.

The course is developed as an Outcome-based education program and model that focuses on developing the students' knowledge, insight, and ability to execute the Lord’s calling. Outcome-based Education ensures the setting of clear standards for observable and measurable outcomes. Therefore, students are required to complete a Portfolio of Evidence (POE). A Portfolio of Evidence is a collection of documents that the student compiles to show that they are competent according to a set of assessment criteria, and the required evidence. Due to the Outcome-based Education model no examination is required for CTM.

COGIBC lecturers are experts in their field of study and their knowledge of the modules will enrich you as a student.

The Faculty Board invites you to register as a student to enable you to start preparing for ministry.
The harvest is ready.
