NTC was established in the year 1989 by Dr. and Mrs. George Chavanikamannil under the auspices of Bharat Susamachar Samiti.
NTC is a theological seminary that trains spiritually alive, professionally competent and socially relevant Christ-like servant leaders for the Church of our Lord Jesus Christ at all levels. The focus of our training is equally on ‘heart’ (character), ‘hand’ (skill) and ‘head’ (knowledge).
Today NTC is a well accepted theological seminary in India with 250 plus students enrolled in different programmes with a resident faculty of 23 and adjunct and visiting faculty of nine. Out of this, eleven have doctoral degrees and rest have M.Th. degrees. Other than these, we have a few faculty members on study leave pursing their doctoral studies. Dr. Simon Samuel, Ph.D. serves as the principal of the seminary.
