Melchisedec Graduate Bible Academy is a subsidiary of Help and Reconciliation Ministry AKA Harmabitrac World Outreach which was founded in Lagos Nigeria on October 15, 1995 by Apostle John Daniel.
From Bible Study To College
The Bible study portion of the Ministry was upgraded to an Institution and founded by Dr John A. Daniel on 15th January 2000. It was registered and approved by the fed govt of Nigeria as Help and Reconciliation Ministry and Bible Training College with vested authority to award basic, advanced and diploma certificates to its students.
In January 2004, Apostle John Daniel also founded Help and Reconciliation Ministry and Bible Training College Newark NJ USA as a non-profit organization. With the aim of providing the same services as the office in Lagos Nigeria, but with particular attention to social and charitable services. See http://www.harmabitrac.org for details.
From College to University
Due to further demand from both students and graduates of the institution who could not afford admission, tuition, etc fees for their degree programs from other theological institutions, coupled with pressures from other interest groups who have benefited immensely from the teachings of the institution, the Lord granted our request to further upgrade the institution to a degree awarding university (Bachelors, Masters and Doctorate).
We applied to the Federal Ministry of Education Nigeria, and after 2 years of inspecting our core requirements, we were finally approved and registered by the Federal Government of Nigeria in November 2007 as Melchisedec Graduate Bible Academy Lagos Nigeria.
