BRIEF HISTORY OF KUM-RAN BIBLE COLLEGE
Greater Evangelism Kum-Ran Bible College was founded in 1974 at Bori in Gokana Local Government Area of Rivers State by the International Director, Greater Evangelism World Crusade, Apostle G. D. Numbere. In 1994, the College relocated to its permanent site in Nonwa Tai, Tai Local Government Area, Rivers State; about thirty six kilometers from Port Harcourt City, on account of the expansion of academic programmes, increase in the intake of students and staff strength.
Kum-Ran Bible College is a higher Ecclesiastical Institute run by the ministry of Greater Evangelism World Crusade for the study of Theology and related disciplines within the socio-cultural context of the African Sub-region. As an Ecclesiastical Institute, it is accredited to the Accrediting Council for Theological Education in Africa (ACTEA).
