The proposed Precious Cornerstone University is sponsored by THE SWORD OF THE SPIRIT MINISTRIES (SOTSM). A major aspect of SOTSM’s Mission is geared towards education and training. SOTSM operates a Bible College known as the International Bible College of Ministry and Seminary (IBCOMS); it was established in 1990. IBCOMS has been responsible for leadership training and has successfully raised thousands of Christian leaders.
In furtherance of its quest to empower and raise visionary and purposeful future leaders, SOTSM established in 2001, the Christ Life Academy Junior (the Primary arm) and in 2006, the Christ Life College. Her latest venture is the proposed Precious Cornerstone University (PCU) which is geared towards excellence in learning and research to achieve intellectual development, capacity building, diligent wealth creation, biblical core values and godly character enhancement.
The vision of a glorious future for Nigeria and Africa led to the proposal to establish the Precious Cornerstone University (PCU), since institutions of higher education also are critical for developing far sighted leadership.
