Message from Principal

We do hope that you enjoy exploring it. Our College is a unique place where men and women are equipped to take the gospel of Jesus Christ to Ethiopia and the world. For more than 25 years, PTC College has been preparing men and women for a life-time of Christian ministry in which they will teach the Bible faithfully in the context of genuine, loving personal relationships. Our great concern remains that all human beings in Ethiopia and around the world might hear of the forgiveness of sins that can only be found in Jesus Christ and grow to maturity in that new life which he grants to those who come to him. We know that God’s way of bringing this about is through godly, well-equipped workers who are able to ‘rightly handle the word of truth’ and who are sacrificial in their service of others. Based on the Addis Ababa campus, we have an Extension in Jimma, Hawassa, Diredawa, Bahirdar, Adola, Bensa Daye and Loke. Students come to study with us from different churches and cultural contexts. Our graduates then go to serve in wonderfully diverse places in Ethiopia, Middle East Africa, Europe, Australia, North, and South America. As you travel through this site you will see that our College is growing and changing, while always remaining true to its mission and values. There are thrilling opportunities ahead of us and some interesting challenges as well. Pray with us as we ask our heavenly Father to use us in ways which will most honor him Come and visit us. You will always be welcome.
