The vision of UMCA Theological College, Ilorin, Nigeria is to be a Christian centre of higher education whose products fully share the mission of Jesus Christ…



  • To lead each student to a fuller experience of Christ as Saviour and Lord, and to the development of a truly Christian character…


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.
