Academics at WATS

The academic programmes at WATS seek to fill your mind, warm your heart, and equip your hands. A mind filled with biblical, theological, and historical truth serves as a solid foundation for wisdom in leadership. A heart warmed by the infilling of the Holy Spirit will ignite revival fires where there has been dearth and death. Hands skilled in touching the needy of our world represents the presence of Jesus when he himself touched the needy. Have our programmes achieved the fullest in each of these three areas? Honestly, not yet! But we have a clear goal—please come join us in this pursuit of excellence

Founded in 1989, I first became acquainted with WATS in 1994. Across the years since then, I have watched the growth of the seminary. It is as strong TODAY as it has ever been. The academic programmes are poised to become national leaders.
