The WATS Community

The community at WATS every major ethnic group of Nigeria, most of the denominational and non-denominational movements in our country. Our diversity truly reflects the diversity of the Body of Christ. Yet we seek to demonstrate the unity of Christ's body in our relationships, student life programmes, chapel services, and community outreach. Our students live both on campus and off campus. We have a basket ball court used for recreational activities, also a beautiful/comfortable food court. We even host an intramural football (soccer) tournament each year. We've got a great community!


We offer this web-presence for our friends and interested people to get better acquainted with us. Check these sections:

  • Student life and organizations.
  • Discipleship program.
  • Information about student housing.
  • Practical ministries outreach by the WATS staff and students.

Jesus said that the greatest commandment was to love God with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength . . . and the second greatest commandment--to love our neighbors as ourselves. This says something about community.
