Nile Theological College
in Sudan and South Sudan
About Our Partner
Nile Theological College was founded by former Presbyterian missionary Bill Anderson in 1991. It is the highest level theological training institution offering a bachelor’s degree for the churches in South Sudan. Presbyterians from two Sudanese denominations attend NTC, as do Episcopalians and members of other Protestant traditions. In 2011 it became a two-campus theological institution with one in Khartoum (Republic of Sudan) and the other in Juba (Republic of South Sudan). When civil war broke out in South Sudan in December 2013, the southern campus of NTC temporarily lost its teachers and students who fled to safety. Its facilities in Malakal were destroyed. The school started up again in the spring of 2015 in borrowed quarters in Juba with five students. Now there are 27 with more on the way when the civil war completely ends. The school has plans to develop its faculty and build a new campus. PC(USA) mission co-workers Bob and Kristi Rice live in Juba, and Bob teaches a broad range of courses in theology and biblical studies at NTC. NTC’s northern campus in Khartoum continues to flourish amazingly in a 90% Islam environment.
Nile Theological College has made its mark on Sudan for more than twenty-five years through pastors who serve churches, teachers of religion in the schools, and Christians serving in the government. Our support makes it possible for this generation of students to prepare to make a similar impact.
The Outreach Foundation is seeking gifts totaling $14,000 in scholarship support of students at Nile Theological College.
