And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” (Matt 28:18-20)
Greetings to you all in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ!
It is with the Great Commission recorded in the gospel according to Matthew in mind that our founders, Rev. Dr. Chelliah Russelliah and Christobel K. Russelliah founded GGM’s Indian Theological Seminary (ITS) in the year 1990. After planting a few churches themselves, the founders realized that they would need more laborers in the field to preach Christ and plant churches and truly impact the unreached. Therefore, ITS was started with the vision of creating disciples that would combine formal theological training and evangelical principles with the goal of the expansion of the Kingdom of God on earth.
Since inception, ITS has been preparing students for Christian missions, ministry, the Church and wider society by providing a holistic theological education with equal emphasis on academic and ministerial formation. ITS is committed to preparing India’s next generation of missionaries, pastors, scholars, and theological educators. In the present day context, students are in need of sound biblical, theological, ministerial, social and practical knowledge and experience. ITS is providing students with a theological education that will enable them to face the challenges of the contemporary world
Grace and peace,
Rev. Sunil Singh Nallathambi
