WOFBI: The Training Mandate

In one of those days of waiting on the Lord in May 1983, the Lord spoke in clear terms to the Presiding Bishop saying, "I will, through this ministry, raise the foundation of many other ministries." He understood this to mean that the ministry would be involved in training of men & women for spiritual leadership, not only in pulpit ministry, but in all areas of human endeavors. Curriculum preparation began by the last quarter of 1985, but the school began with evening classes on September 1, 1986.

Something supernatural happened a week to the time of resumption of the students. His wife, our Mama asked him, "The students are expected to resume classes in a week's time, but where are they to resume to?" And he responded humorously, "Is it your school?" As expected, God (the owner of the school) showed up, and showed him a property at 30, Katsina Road, Kaduna, in a flash. He had never been to or known anyone in that facility, but God pointed it out to him saying, "That is the school."

As he got to the office that morning he dispatched one of the staff, who when he arrived at that facility, met the owner without knowing, and asked him, "Sir, are you the landlord of this building?" The man said, "Jesus is the landlord, I am only a caretaker." "Sir," he continued, "We need this property for our Bible School," and the man responded, "If it's for Bible School, then it is free." That was how the property was given to us without paying a dime from 1986 to 1989, when we left on our own volition. Interestingly, the landlord was one of the pioneer students of WOFBI.
