Today is a very special day for all of us who gather here, as well as for those family members of graduating students who cannot gather here but have to participate remotely.

This is not only the day which marks the end of your long academic journey but also the day we can celebrate the end of a very stressful period without anyone infected by COVID-19 virus on our campus. It was indeed a very strange period that we have to spend together, all of you taking most courses on-line.

I admire all of you, graduates, faculty and staff alike, that we could get through these very tough days together, full of anxiety at first, but very united and caring for each other for the entire period. As the president & Chancellor of this seminary, I am very proud of you all.

I am happy to announce that we can send out today seven (7) Doctoral students from our Graduate School in collaboration with the Cornerstone Christian University. I would like to congratulate all the graduating students and their families for their hard work and intensive study here at One Way International Theological Seminary (OWITS). All of you can be very proud of your wonderful achievement.

The One-way International Theological Seminary has a distinguished history and curriculum. I am so glad that you have chosen to complete your studies with us. I want to thank you for attending our on-site graduation so that I am personally able to hand you your well-earned degree from one of the better Theological Seminaries.

 The One Way International Theological Seminary was founded in 2016 as a coeducational institution. It is a private evangelical Christian institution located in, Kingston, Jamaica West Indies.

The Seminary offers Undergraduate, Graduate and Post Graduate degree programmes and its primary objective is to train Missionaries, Evangelists, Pastors, Preachers, Christian Professionals and Teachers.

One Way International Theological Seminary is registered with the Companies Office of Jamaica as a not for profit organization and is also a registered member of the American Association for Higher Education and the Association of Independent Christian Colleges and Seminaries in the USA.  OWITS is also in an advance state of receiving accreditation from both organizations.   The Seminary is in the process of acquiring affiliation with the National Christian Counsellors Association which will affords it the opportunity to certify Christian Counsellors with the professional Clinical Certification.

Our Motto is ” Created for Excellence”.

As such a special place, it is my prayer that OWITS will remain to be a place where you want to return  after graduation, both in your memory and in person.

Congratulations again on your graduation and God’s richest blessings to all of you at your next destination.

Peace and Every Good
