About the University
Resurrection Power University of Theology and Seminary is the online educational and training program of a nonprofit Christian church incorporation, Resurrection Power World Outreach Ministries also known as Obasi World Outreach Resurrection Power Ministries. The values of the University are purely of the tradition of the evangelical, nondenominational, Christian Church seminary, while remaining open to accepts students from all denominations.
The vision of the University is to provide affordable, nontraditional theological education, training and credentialing for Christians to become leaders and ministers equipped with the necessary skills needed to take the gospel of Jesus Christ to all nations of the world in the computerized end-time era.
Our mission is to provide opportunities for people to study the word of God from the perspective of nondenominational Christian faith, with emphasis on creating awareness and preparation strategies for the second coming of Jesus Christ. To reach the educationally unreachable under normal circumstances, the University utilizes a combination of online, correspondence, and onsite approach to meet geographical, internet, and utility challenges that hinder access to Christian education.
To this effect, the University will work with families, local churches and community leaders to utilize community centers, churches and schools, even in the remote parts of the world in this computer age. Students may study from their homes if they have access to personal computer and internet, or attend a decentralized hybrid virtual onsite class center. In our virtual onsite classroom model, there is a widescreen virtual monitor on the wall (in place of the chalk board), the professor is teaching from a remote location, the classroom is full of students who are having real-time teacher-student interaction with the professor.
