Tyndale Theological Seminary

 

Tyndale Theological Seminary is a witness for Christ in multi-cultural Europe, equipping leaders to reach Europe and the world with the gospel. Tyndale provides a unique opportunity for students to be trained and equipped with the gospel, and then return home to serve the local church as pastors, church plants, missionaries, Bible teaches and leaders.
