Permit me to appreciate and pay tribute to the founding Fathers, late Bishop Akila Todi. In particular, Rev. Dr. Harvey Nelson donated all his books to the Seminary’s library to jump-start the programme with ease in 1985. The first principal was late Bishop Phanuel Borkono Agongtara, and the second principal was Bishop William Lautai to mention but a few. Today 90% of LCCN pastors are the product of this great institution, Bronnum Lutheran Seminary.
The educational philosophy of Bronnum Lutheran Seminary is rooted in the Christian tradition as understood from the Lutheran perspective. It is on the principle of imparting knowledge and learning to men and women of all races without prejudice on the grounds of race, denomination or political beliefs. The church tradition also emphasizes her obligation to strive for spreading the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ in Nigeria, Africa and the world at large.
The mission of the seminary is to educate and prepare men and women called by the Holy Spirit for ordained ministry, as well as Christian services in the church and society at large. Graduates of the seminary find employment with the church, government and private institutions.
Bronnum Lutheran Seminary vision is to attain high academic excellence in order to train as many as possible church ministers and teachers so that in future, each local congregation of the church should have at least one pastor, train teachers to teach in both seminaries and government institutions. This would enhance the quality of the institution to be rated one of the best in Nigeria and beyond.
