Founded by Pastor Jide Lawore, the Agape School of Ministry and Leadership provides a robust discipleship program, practical ministry training, and sound theological education to any interested believer in an ordered learning environment. Because our programs are primarily online, they are available to any believer anywhere in the world with access to the internet.

Because AgapeSML is church based, the programs are practical, relevant, and offered in the context or real-life ministry. This also allows us to offer a top-notch education and training that are also very affordable. Our accredited degree programs are offered through our partnership with the Biblical Institute of Leadership Development (BILD) and the Antioch School of Church Planting and Leadership Development.

Message from the President

Agape School of Ministry and Leadership prepares students to pursue their highest calling in Christ. Our students are from a variety of backgrounds, but they all have one thing in common; their hunger to go deeper in the knowledge of God and to make a difference in this world through Christ. AgapeSML equips and empowers students for victorious Christian living and effective ministry.

At the root of all these is our believe that every believer has been called and gifted by God to make a difference in the world. Hence, we design these courses to get you grounded, stir up the gifts of God in you and equip you for effectiveness in your calling. This is derived from Ephesians 4:11-12, “Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, 12 to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up.

In closing, I want you to understand that learning is a life-long process. Just like Apostle Paul we must press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of us. Learning is an investment in yourself that pays off tremendously. I want to challenge you to look at our courses and see next investment you can make in yourself.
