The church is maturing in leadership. Leaders are trained through Theological Education by Extension and the modular school Wesley Evangelical School of Theology. The first International Child Care Ministries (ICCM) school, Hope Academy Ikot Ekpe, opened in September 2001. It was joined by an extension school at Ikot Ntuk in 2008. Two schools, one in Kogi and one in Ondo, serve the children of Fulani herdsmen in the north. Because ICCM schools offer a high level of education, as well as the gospel of Jesus, more schools are planned for the future.
