Fulfilling IM’s Commitment to Church & Leader Multiplication

Amid conflict and post-war challenges in the Middle East, refugees and nationals from Iraq and Syria have emerged transformed through faith in Christ.  For those who wish to take theological training choices were limited to church education institutes.  In October 2022, Indigenous Ministries launched Middle East Theological College, opening the door for students representing various people groups throughout the region to receive quality, accredited biblical theological training in Iraq. METC is the only fully accredited college of its type in Iraq.

Fully Accredited

Programs at our main campus in central India, our Indian extensions and in our Iraq office are accredited by Asia Theological Association (https://www.ataasia.com). We will be adding Master’s level programs to our degrees.

Faithful Biblical Training

Now in our 20th year, Grace Bible College in India has offered certificate and Bachelor’s programs for Christian workers who have planted 100s of churches throughout the region. METC is following in the same Christian tradition of sound, biblical training.

An International Team

Middle East Theological College is led by Dr John W Cook, CEO of Indigenous Ministries and Dr. Craig Miller, Director of Education Development for Indigenous Ministries.  Our fully-credentialed faculty are from Iraq, Jordan, Egypt, India and the United States.
