At the Koinonia College of Theology (KCOT), our mission is to Reach the Unreached and Teach the Untaught. Our professors follow a Bible-centered curriculum that prepares students from across India to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ.
This year the College is excited to welcome our biggest incoming class ever! We now have seven students pursuing a Diploma in Theology, 17 in our Bachelor of Theology program, and four going for a Masters in Divinity.
The students are from Maharashtra, Andhra Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, Orissa, Manipur and Nagaland. Many of them found out about KCOT through the promotional efforts of our faculty.

Praise the Lord for His guiding hand on this ministry over the past 12 years! We now have nine Bible teachers at KCOT, including two women. New to us are Benson Abraham, Sandip Vibhute, Sonal Christian, Sophia Makasare, and Mandar Farande. Please pray for the workers as we prepare the men and women to face the challenges of proclaiming the Gospel in India today.
Twenty-five additional daytime students are enrolled in our new Certificate Program in the Marathi Language. These classes will begin this month in Bhosari, about five miles from the KCOT facility at Pune Center, to help train and equip more men and women who want to share their Christian faith in their areas.
Join us, pray for us, support us as we send workers into the villages, towns, and cities of India.
Pune Center Expansion Complete
Construction of the additional fifth floor of Pune Center is complete and students are moving in! This floor is customizable to be used for a number of purposes, giving us some much needed flexibility to accommodate the needs of our fast-growing College and Girls Home.
We will try to get a video of the first-ever ride up the elevator!
