“Olivet” Refers to the Mount of Olives
A historic site in ministry of Jesus named for the olive trees that covered its slopes. The emblems of Olivet – the olive tree and the oil from its fruit – represent the world of peace and eternity proclaimed by Jesus Christ.
The hope for that world is embedded in Olivet Theological College & Seminary.
Our purpose is to raise biblical scholars and leaders through a comprehensive program of academic study and spiritual training in faith and theology.
The curricular program also balances theoretical and practical learning to encourage the application of scholarship.
These and other components of the learning experience at OTCS are an intentional effort to educate a generation of Christian leaders prepared to preach the Gospel in today's context of mission, and to advance the world proclaimed by Jesus Christ.
