About CTSI

CTSI is the daughter school of Covenant Theological Seminary – Greenville, North Carolina which has been serving the Body of Christ in North Carolina and beyond since 1990 when it was incorporated by Dr. Barney W. English to train ministers for the work of the ministry. CTS International was organized through the State of South Carolina to accommodate requests by CTS students and others for an advanced doctoral degree program, which the State of North Carolina did not permit. Since organizing, CTSI has worked alongside CTS-Greenville in providing Advanced Doctoral Degree Programs to our students.

        Our Vision

        A. MISSION:

        1. DISCIPLINE – To disciple and equip ministers who will GO and do likewise (Matthew 28:18-20, Ephesians 4:11-16).

        2. DEGREE – To prepare and/or recognize ministers for their ministerial labors and school experience rendering honor to them (Romans 13:7, 1 Timothy 5:17).

        3. DUPLICATE – To commit to faithful men and women the basics of Christian character, growth and ministry for reproduction – duplication – of these truths and materials to others, who will in turn commit the same to others who will also do the same, which in turn, will MULTIPLY the Word of God, as well as the work of the ministry (2 Timothy 2:2)!

        B. MODEL:

        1. PERSONALLY – To personally model the above, teach it, and release it to others to do the same, just as Jesus and Paul did (2 Timothy 2:3-7, Acts 1:1, 2 Timothy 2:2).

        2. PRACTICALLY – To establish and extend God’s Kingdom on earth through preaching and demonstrating the Gospel of grace, teaching it to others, and releasing them into ministry to do the same (Matthew 6:9, 28:20, Mark 16:15-20, Luke 24:44-49, Acts 1:8, 20:24,32, 2 Timothy 2:2).
