Names of Accredited and Non Accredited Church and Ministry Owned Universities in Nigeria

The house of God is a place where men are built and one of the ways vision can be actualized is through education, it is now a great delight that ministries are now taking over the education sector. Not just the secondary but also the higher institution, not just to install knowledge but also the fear of God. The History of this can be traced to Oral Robert University, which university is known as one of the founding universities birthed through ministries.

Names of ministries and their schools are listed below accordingly
