The National Accreditation Board, at its 61st Meeting held on 29th March, 2007 granted approval for the then Ghana Christian College and Seminary to change its status to a University College. Prior to that, at its 15th Meeting held on the 25th September, 1997 the Board had granted a two-Year Interim Accreditation Status to the B.A in Christian Ministries program offered in the institution with effect from that date (National Accreditation Board’s letter of 14th July 1998).
Ghana Christian University College and Seminary had been established by Gerald A. Gibson, in Kumasi in June 1966 with the main objective to add a “strong, trained biblically based leadership to the future of the spiritual and independent churches in Ghana with no seminaries of their own”.
The college was relocated in Nima, Accra, in July the same year, with its five students from Kumasi to enable Gibson complete the paper work required to officially establish it as a private school. It received the Ministry of Education’s approval on 22nd August, the same year with classes starting on the 4th October. In January, 1967 it moved again to Kokomlemle, with its student population of thirty (30).
