On the students who were convocate, Pastor Ajayi said; "89 students graduated from degree class, bachelor of theology, diploma in theology and certificate in theology."

The Bible Training College of the Church began on May 1, 1952, at Ede with Pastor D. O. Odubanjo as its first Principal.  Since then it has changed locations many times before it was finally merged with the School of Prophets from Ilesa and the Pastors’ Institute from Agege to form the Christ Apostolic Church Theogical Seminary.

However, the School of Prophets at Ilesa was the baby  of our beloved General Evangelist/Pastor D. O. Babajide.  He conceived the idea as far back as 1943 when he suggested the founding of such institution to the late Apostle Joseph Ayo Babalola.  The dread materialized in 1959 when a group of eighteen students began their training as Evangelists under him.

As for the Pastoral Institute at Agege, it had its origin at the time of “necessity” which they say “is the mother of invention”.  Before this time, a would-be Church Minister has to become a disciple of one of a senior pastor until the pastor would recommend him for ordination.  The institution began in Ibadan.  Due to circumstances beyond their control, our fathers moved the school to Agege, Lagos.  So by the time of the merger, it was at Agege.

In order to curtail the duplication of courses and to harmonize the doctrines, as well as to reduce the cost of running the three schools mentioned above, the schools merged to form the Christ Apostolic Church Theological Seminary on September 9, 1979, at Ile-Ife.

The Seminary offered training to would-be Church Teachers, Prophets, Evangelists and Pastors, in 1989 the curriculum of the Seminary was streamlined to cater for Certificate and Diploma in Theology programmes.  By 1986, the Seminary had started offering the following programmes.
