The vision

The Lord is raising up a generation of children chosen and destined for greatness that will be like none we have ever seen before.

They will be brilliant, highly educated, innovative people to whom God will reveal the secrets of His wealth that are hidden in every field of human endeavour.
They will be first class doctors, engineers, scientists, economists, bankers, stock brokers, computer analysts, legislators, politicians presidents and first ladies etc who will control vast financial kingdoms with righteousness, because they will be His children with His godly character.

They will be part of the greatest revival the world has ever seen, and they will represent the dawn of a new day. Lifeforte International School is one of the institutions that the Lord has set up to raise children of excellence, whose excellence will go beyond academics to include character.

LIFEFORTE INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL is a co-educational Private Christian Institution, consisting of the Preschool, Junior and High Schools for children between the ages of 3-18 years.

It was founded on the 5th of November 1990 by Pastor Olubi and Sarah Johnson to provide a balanced comprehensive educational curriculum for the full development of children (ages 3-18) intellectually, spiritually and socially. Lifeforte has a large number of students, Nigerian and foreign, who come from different social backgrounds (e.g. from Britain, America and Canada) and they have all settled down well.

With our established travel agency (Biscordint) traveling has been made easy as Lifeforte always makes arrangements for students traveling from different parts of the world to Nigeria and back at special Lifeforte parent's discount rates.


  1. To foster the spirit of Christian fulfillment and happiness, thereby encouraging the children to grow up in the knowledge and service of our Lord Jesus Christ.
  2. To encourage leadership qualities such as high moral standards, truthfulness, determination and integrity in all students.
  3. To offer a program sufficiently wide-ranging and challenging in order to produce well-exposed, civilized, responsible and disciplined children who will become honourable citizens, equipped to cope with the diversities of the world around them.
  4. To provide an atmosphere conducive to the achievement of academic excellence.
  5. To equip the children with skills for precision in cognitive perception, thought processes and expression, as well as the development of their own individual talents.

Lifeforte truly represents a new dawn in Christian character building, and all-round excellence.
