The mission of BTC Southern Africa is to offer people called to Christian ministry a biblically-based, relevant theological education, which focuses on devotional integrity, practical competence and academic excellence. This theological education is shaped by our commitment to the inspired Word of God and our belief that the Church can, and should, be relevant in current society.
In 1951 the Baptist Union of Southern Africa established The Baptist Theological College of Southern Africa. Its goal then was to prepare pastors for Baptist churches. Over the years the college has established itself as one of the premier ministry training institutions in the country with a growing global footprint. The focus has broadened significantly to include the training of pastors, youth pastors, missionaries and leaders of various ministries within the local church.
BTC welcomes students from all denominational and church backgrounds who are willing to accept our statement of faith. We curently have many students from other denominations and a healthy balance generationally on-campus

Established in 2001, we pride ourselves with an impressive track record of top quality higher education.

Stenden South Africa is an International Branch Campus of Stenden University of Applied Sciences. Stenden University has a long and diverse history of academic performance. Its teacher training degree programme goes back over 100 years. However, Stenden is anything but an old fashioned University. As the turn of the century was approaching, Stenden (back then operating under the name CHN University) chose to launch a pioneering concept known as 'Grand Tour'. The Grand Tour is an old European custom whereby youngsters were encouraged to travel and see the World before settling themselves in a career. Stenden had the desire to re-invent this concept and incorporate it in the different degree courses it offers. By establishing international campus sites the vision to offer a true international education experience materialized.
