Baptist Theological College of Southern Africa (BTC), located in Randburg, South Africa, was established in 1951 by the Baptist Union of Southern Africa to prepare pastors for Baptist churches. The College Principal is Prof. Martin Pohlmann. BTC's focus has broadened significantly since its founding to include the training of youth pastors and missionaries. The narrow denominational focus has also changed, and the college now welcomes students from all denominational and church backgrounds who are willing to accept its statement of faith. The College offers certificate and diploma courses, as well as the degrees of Bachelor of Theology (4 years of study) and Master of Theology. The College is registered with the Department of Education as a Higher Education Institution, and its programmes are accredited by the Council on Higher Education (CHE). BTC has a very high standard in selecting its teaching staff. Starting with the Principal to most of the Heads of departments, the teaching staff have doctoral degrees earned from some of the best universities in the world. We also have speciality teaching staff in the areas of Greek, Hebrew, Missions, Youth, and Pastoral studies. Experience plays as much a role as the academic side of the subjects taught within each of our teacher’s lives. BTC is also proud of its international, multi-cultural and multigenerational staff compliment.
