Word Of Faith Bible Institute (WOFBI)
The Word Of Faith Bible Institute (WOFBI) is a ministry/leadership training center, which serves as the training arm of the Living Faith Church World Wide. The institute runs periodic two-week specialized courses termed "SPECIAL". The courses are designed to motivate participants positively, towards distinction, both in their secular as well as spiritual engagement.
The vision of the institute is in line with the mandate given to Dr. David Oyedepo in May 1983, when the Holy Ghost said to him: "I WILL THROUGH THIS MINISTRY RAISE THE FOUNDATION OF MANY OTHER MINISTRIES". For this reason the Institute's curriculum is designed to inculcate covenant excellence in leadership, ministry, social, economic, and other areas of human endeavours.
HISTORICAL LAND MARKS
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 endeavours. 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

IMPACT OF WOFBI
At WOFBI we do not offer mere secular education, we also provide deep spiritual enlightenment, as well as mental empowerment for exploits. WOFBI is not just a place of learning; it is actually a place of transfigurative encounters. In the words of Dr. David Oyedepo "There is no mountain any where, every man's ignorance is his mountain." It is your light that defines your limit. If you will submit to the forces of enlightenment, you will subdue every mountainous issue of your life.
Finally, the Word of faith that we teach and preach is not founded on theology or philosophy, neither is it aimed at propagating doctrines rather, it's a vehicle for the rescue and preservation of all peoples, irrespective of colour, creed or ethnicity.
