What makes College of Theology & Missions Different?
Our Focus: It’s all about Jesus
CTM is a one of a kind institution where students “major” on the Word of God and Prayer life, going through the entire Bible in two years. Our faith-focused classes’ help students build a firm foundation for life, work, and ministry by growing in their knowledge of God and His Truth. We learn with a higher purpose, always focusing on Jesus Christ and His love for the world.
Community: Learning Alongside
We believe in experiential, hands-on learning, which is why we have several ways for students to serve alongside Christian leaders through Practical Christian Ministry, internships, and other volunteer opportunities on and off campus. All of this takes place in a caring, Christ-centered community of fellow students, staff, and faculty who are focused on knowing and serving Jesus.
One of our greatest learning environments in our college is living in our community interactions and ministry training. We believe that the leadership involvement, discipleship, and conflict resolution learned while as a student brings life-long gains to each person!
Chapels, small groups, and one-on-one meetings are additional spiritual meeting places for God to work in and through you as a student.
Living in Community of same Faith
Grow. Connect. Learn.
Our Mission & Philosophy
Coming together is the beginining; living Life together cultivates welcoming, and Christ-centered communities that foster individual growth, meaningful connections, and purposeful learning.
We aim to celebrate the individuality of each student, encouraging them to grow in their personal strengths and discover their unique vocations within the context of Christian community. Students are encouraged to deepen their faith through Bible studies and accountability, as well as to ask questions and explore their own identities and values in a safe space.
The community living experience of the residence halls provides unique opportunities for students to cultivate personal holistic growth. Events, faculty/staff connections, and meaningful conversations help students to find a sense of belonging and positive community on campus.
Living on campus is an integral part of the CTM Bible College educational experience and learning outside of the classroom. Intentional programming in the college premises focuses on personal growth, community, and life skills.
