This College has to provide instruction to many who belong to different churches as this is only the College run by a traditional Church ( Non-Roman Catholic ) throughout 7 districts of the north coastal region of the state of Andhra Pradesh.

The College is affiliated with Latimer Hall School of Divinity, Statesville, NC 28687, USA.

 
This College was started in 1915. The ICM Church maintained the theological college from 1915-55 at Bhogolu Parish in a 25 acre Mango Garden and unfortunately it was closed due to financial constrains in 1955. It was restarted in 2006.


FINANCIAL NEEDS

We are in dire need of funds for the theological College for training of youth for the Ministry and for the Order of the Church. The college re-started the at ELURU in the Diocesan head quarters for the time being and have plans to shift to a premises owned by  the church after constructing proper buildings.

The College offers ONE year C.Th ( Certificate of Theology ) for Secondary School Certificate holders and
2 years B.Th (Bachelor of Theology ) for Graduates.

At present, The College has temporary structures. We have to raise funds for the construction of permanent structures with an estimated cost of US $ 15,000. The Library is also not adequate and it needs US $ 1000 at least for the development. The infrastructure is also to be provided adequately and needs at least US $ 1000.

The Church was funded previously by the Anglican families of the founders ( the PAYNTERS and GREETS ) headquartered at Sri Lanka but they retired and left for England in 2000, and gave us autonomy to live on our own. Though the Church has its limited funds for running the College, still it needs US $ 350 per month (recurring expenditure )to function the Theological College.

Hence we humbly request the Church bodies and inspired individuals to assist this Church for the above viable project.
