School of Biblical Studies
The School of Biblical Studies, Jos, started on 20th August, 1989, with 12 students attending a 2 year Diploma course. In 1992 the school introduced a 3 year Diploma course. Then in 2002 the school introduced a 4 year Bachelor of Arts Degree in Biblical Studies. This degree prepares students to preach the gospel as well as teach Bible in Primary and Secondary Schools. One year later in 2003 SBS introduced our 4 year B.A Ministry course of study to prepare those who are willing to preach and work full time with local congregations.

Brother Emmanuel Owakayi Egyegini was born in Doma, Nasarawa State, in February 1976. He has been a very busy Christian after he graduated with a B.A. in Bible from SBS in 2007. Emmanuel became the preacher of the Church of Christ in Doma, and he started spreading the gospel on a local radio program named Let the Bible Speak. He also taught in a Junior Government Secondary School, Islamiya, Lafia, for his one year of teaching practice to obtain a Post Graduate Diploma in Education. He continued his studies and obtained a Diploma in Computer Application and a Diploma in Computer Engineering.
Recently Emmanuel completed his M.A. in Ethics and Philosophy. He is currently teaching four courses in those subjects. Emmanuel is single, but plans to marry in October of this year. It has been a blessing being able to watch this young man grow into a mature Christian evangelist and teacher. Would your congregation be interested in helping support this man to teach at SBS?
