COTR Theological Seminary opened in 1983 with 30 students. Over 2000 students have completed training since the inception of the seminary. COTR Seminary offers Bachelor of Theology, Master of Divinity, and Master of Theology in Missiology and Church History degrees, accredited by Asia Theological Association. We are also planning for a Doctoral program in the near future.
Help train and equip a young person to obtain their Bachelor or Master’s degree from our accredited seminary. Your support will provide lodging, meals, and education. After training, they will be sent out as pastors and evangelists to reach the lost for Christ. The beautiful library building was built in 2001. Housed within is the Warren Shibley Memorial Library, which is set apart for mission studies.
We are praying for more theological books. If you would like to contribute or conduct book drives, please contact us.
Seminary students travel to public Hindu schools to teach moral education. While they are prohibited from teaching Christianity, they are allowed to utilize stories from the Bible to teach morals to the Hindu students, thus introducing them to the Word of God. This is an unique program considering that India is deeply rooted in Hinduism.
The goal of the Marketplace Ministry is to impact India for Christ through business men and women. Christian Businessmen’s Conferences are held to encourage the local Christian business owners in the areas of leadership, stewardship, financing, strategic planning, and other topics. They are given tools to help them improve their current ventures as well as motivation to launch new businesses which would enable local church members to prosper. Members are then able to bless their local church and help it become self-supporting. These business people are also able to network and link with local pastors and ministries to further the Kingdom of God.
