Our range of training programmes

For the past 44 years, CAPRO has been involved in mobilizing, training and sending missionaries to unreached people groups. CAPRO is committed to working with the Body of Christ to ensure that Christ’s undiluted message of love and transformation reaches the neglected and forgotten peoples of our generation.

The first formal session of what is now called the School of Missions took off in 1982 with six trainees. It was more like life-coaching than a school; under the leadership of Uncle Bayo Famonure. The School is now relocated to its present site still in GanaRopp on the other side of the river.
The training duration was very short compared with what we have now. It has undergone several adjustments overtime. Presently the duration is 12 months of intensive interaction, drills, coaching and mentoring.
The Training Officers
Several training officers have come on board to enhance the effectiveness of the training and they majorly concerned themselves with the general welfare of both the trainers and the trainees. The current training officer is Herbert Akparanta while the Principal of the School of Missions is Taiwo Olatunji.
Over the period of forty years since its inception the School has admitted over 800 persons coming from thirty four different denominations and ministries as at the time of writing.
The School Fees
Calvary Ministries is a faith based organization; this is reflected in her activities even in the training school. At each point the amount charged is not adequately sufficient to cater for the running of the school. The ministry is aware that most people coming into training do not have a strong support base.
Entry Qualification
A successful candidate into the school of missions must pass the following test. Must have a call/persuasion to do Missions work. Love for the unreached people. Must have a minimum of WAEC certificate.

Do you have a call to serve God among the unreached and other cultures?
