The vision behind the founding of the REMO  Diocesan School of Theology is to create a forum of learning for lay people who are interested in the study of the Bible and its advanced related disciplines in the fields of Theology.  Similar Schools have been established in other Dioceses of the Anglican Communion in Nigeria.  However, and although the voluntary advanced learning about the Bible and the Church through the study of Theology by lay people may be profitable for its own sake, the goal of the School is to produce men and women with disciplined minds who would be able to assist the Clergy in the services of the Church in the areas of Lay readership at Services, local visitation, Leading of Local Bible Studies and general lay assistance in broadening and easing the Christian ministerial work of the Clergy.

Apart from the fact that the contributions of such informed lay people would make Church’s administrative work easier, as it would ease the general co-operation of the Laity, the prospects of such candidates/graduands are great as they could proceed to Theological Colleges (like Immanuel College and Vining College of Theology) to further concretize their vision and scope and thereby prepare themselves for greater and full time ministerial work in the Church of God.

The School of Theology also runs Leadership training programmes on various aspects of the work and the life of the church (for both clergy and Laity) and thereby provides a programme of continuing Education for Laity and theological education by extension for the Clergy.  It is hoped that through its various programmes, the REMO School of Theology will further equip saints for the work of greater and more rapid evangelization of Remo land.

The Motto of the School is “All for Christ”

Programmes of the School.
To this end the school runs 2 major programmes:
(a)       A two year programme in Theology leading to the award of the Licentiate Certificate in Theology (L.Th.)
