West Africa Advanced School of Theology (WAAST) is based in Lomé, Togo, and is affiliated with the Assemblies of God (AG). The campus is actually home to two schools: the undergraduate WAAST and the Assemblies of God Graduate School of Theology (AGGST). The campus also hosts the doctoral classes of Pan-African Theological Seminary (PAThS).
A bilingual school, WAAST offers the Bachelor of Theology and Post-secondary Diploma in Theology in both English and French. AGGST offers the Master of Arts in Missiology degree in both languages.
WAAST and AGGST emphasize the Pentecostal mandate and the fulfillment of the Great Commission. Their purpose is that graduates might advance in the knowledge and skills needed to enable them to carry out God’s mission (missio Dei) to the nations of the world as pastors, evangelists, church planters, missionaries, administrators, and Bible school directors and teachers.
WAAST and AGGST serve more than 20 nations of West and Central Africa and the island of Madagascar. To make its programs more accessible in such a vast area, WAAST operates 10 extension centers, from Dakar, Senegal, to Anananarivo, Madagascar. Today some 1,700 WAAST and AGGST graduates work in these African nations and in other countries around the world.
