The GOFAMINT School for World Missions GSWM was established on September 10, 1993 to prepare and send missionaries to the unreached places in Nigeria, Africa, and beyond for cross cultural evangelism and church planting. Working amongst people of different cultures is very challenging hence the need to expose prospective candidates for cross cultural missions training that will enhance breakthrough, penetration, and efficient performance.
The School was pioneered under the dedicated and visionary leadership of Evan Z. I. Ilori and soon after its establishment Pastor Daniel Aghanenu was brought on board to help nurture the school from its early days of babyhood into maturity. He became the Principal of the school in 1993 and served as the first Principal of the school until 1995, when he was given greater responsibilities to serve as the National Missions Coordinator of the Gospel Faith Missions International (GOFAMINT).
In 1995, he was succeed as by Pastor Paul A. Edu as Principal. Pastor Paul gave leadership to the school from 1995 to 2008. Currently, the school is under the leadership of Pastor Bright Y. Alhassan who has been leading the school since 2009.
The GOFAMINT School for World Missions has since its establishment trained over four hundred (400) missionaries and church planters working amongst various people groups in 33 states of Nigeria and the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja. The people groups include Yoruba, Hausa, Fulani, Igala, Ijaw, Idoma, Tiv, Urhobo, Isoko, Kwale, Bini, Ishan, Afenmai, Ogoja, Dukkawa, Kemberi, Gwarri, etc.
