You are welcome to the site of UMCA Theological College, Ilorin. The College was founded in 1956 by United Missionary Society. Since then, it has produced thousands of pastors, evangelists, teachers/lecturers and other forms of civil servants. Although owned by an evangelical denomination, it admits, indeed its products are from other denominations – orthodox, evangelicals, Pentecostals, etc. The academics of UMCATC are women and men of integrity and professionals in their areas of specializations. They are concerned with deepening Christianity in Africa, and hence they nurture our students with the aim of integrating their hearts and minds in sound Christianity. Our environment is also serene and conducive for spiritual development. The library consists of thousands of resources in both hard and soft copies. We are accredited by the National Universities Commission (Nigeria’s University accreditation agency) as an affiliate of the University of Ibadan and the University of Ilorin, both in Nigeria. The College also has an affiliate status with Association of Christian Theological Education in Africa (ACTEA). Hence, if you are looking for an academically sound theological education with the passionate concern to extend the Kingdom of God and deepen sound Christianity in Africa, UMCATC is the place for your preparation.

Christ Jesus being the underpinning and overall objective of the institution as well as an emphasis on the Bible and the manner of its interpretation and application, has made me doctrinally sane and my training effective and productive. I can unequivocally say that UMCATC avails students with the platform and ability to harness spiritual, moral and intellectual virtues which makes them unashamed workmen and sound agents of creative transformation in their spheres of influence.GODWIN A.

I was serving as an administrator at a seminary while I pursued my Master of Theology. Degree. The intense training of philosophical thinking and theological integration helped me to set a solid foundation in teaching and writing various topics on Christian education or church ministry.JAMES ADEWALE
Perhaps the most critical aspect of the program for me, however, was the modeling and support I received from the faculty and staff at UMCA THEOLOGICAL COLLEGE. Their integrity and personal investment in students created an environment for meaningful conversations and significant personal development.DAVID OYEKU
My relationship with Jesus grew more intimately beyond my expectation. It was a combination of learning in class, role model of professors, encouragement of various spiritual exercises, and mercy of the Lord that had led me into a deeper connection with Jesus.ADEYINKA DANIEL
After Years in Christian Education, I enrolled in the M.Th in the educational studies program at the UMCA Theological College. Central to the pursuit was a desire to grow deeper in the knowledge of Jesus Christ as Lord of all. My goal was to become more effective communicator of biblical truth. The entire faculty at UMCA Theological College inspired me to grow in my walk with God. I made many life-long friends thereRamota Olanite
