Dr. Andreas Olufestus setup CMTI, which gradually grew to become the center of learning it is today.
Initially, CMTI offered courses only in , the class rooms but With continued interest among students and academic faculty from other parts of the world at large, however, CMTI grew into offering the online version of her programmes.
CMTI is today counted among some of the best-known centers of Missiological study in Kogi state, Nigeria, and is geared to cover more and more places and conquering for the Lord with every passing year.
Consistent with our founder, Rev Dr. Andreas Olufestus vision, CMTI is dedicated to bring a wide variety of fields of education together under one roof, enabling the interchange and exchange of fresh and innovative ideas possible within an academic setup. According to Rev Dr. Andreas Olufestus, such an exchange could help set up the framework for genuinely interdisciplinary study and research, helping humanity solve traditional and merging problems via an innovative and open approach, leading to newer ways and methodologies of looking at and dealing with issues. We at CMTI are convinced of the aptness of this vision, and are consistently on the lookout for more and better ways of integrating faculties, ideas, and capabilities.
