Centre for the Development of Christian Ministry[edit]

The Centre for the Development of Christian Ministry [1] is the research and lay training arm of Trinity Theological College. It aims to serve the Church by providing lay training programs, seminars, conferences and research on Bible, theology and ministry. Through the teaching and research it sponsors, the Centre hopes to encourage both clergy and laity to reflect systematically on a wide range of issues related to church and society. The Centre also hopes to provide an environment which both fosters and supports systematic inquiry, reflection and evaluation from an interdisciplinary and Christian perspective on various aspects of culture: religion, politics, the arts, literature, medicine, science, ethics and economics.

The Centre for the Study of Christianity in Asia (CSCA) [2] was established in October 2001 as the mission research arm of Trinity Theological College. It provides a forum where Christians in Southeast Asia can collaborate in affirming their distinct Christian ethos and articulating their faith positions. It is especially concerned to support the governing churches of Trinity Theological College (Lutheran, Presbyterian, Methodist, and Anglican) in their mission initiatives.
