RTI Welcomes you
In 1995 a resolution was passed by the RGO trust to begin a Bible School in the RGO compound. Later, some godly brethren approached Miss Treasure and shared their burden to have a Bible School in Rehoboth.
As a result, after years of prayer, the Rehoboth Theological Institute started functioning in 2002. Dr. Johnson C Philip was invited to become the first principal.
Rehoboth Theological Institute was started in a house, generously given by a believing family, rent free. By the 2nd year classes were moved to a thatched building in Rehoboth compound and by the 3rd year onwards the classes functioned in Rehoboth Campus itself. The buildings have been built and expanded each year so that now a large building stands at the center of all RTI activities. As the Lord leads in the coming years further expansion is intended according to the plan drawn by Dr. Ian Payne (New Zealand).
In 2010, Dr. P.C. Abraham accepted the invitation of the RGO Trust to be the next principal of RTI. Mr. Jiju Ninan Varghese the Registrar coordinates all the day to day management, while the RGO Trust looks after the overall management of RTI along with all the other Rehoboth Ministries.
RTI is situated in a beautiful and spacious campus. It is a unique co-educational Bible Institute in India. The students are from many parts of India, and our aim is that they will be totally committed to the Lord and prepared to go wherever He asks them. Girls and boys have their own hostels and are supervised by mature wardens. RTI has a rich library with a large variety of resources for research. The vision of its founders and trustees has taken shape to the glory of God.

RTI is located 4km east of Thrissur Town, within the spacious compound of RGOT. Thrissur is known as the cultural capital of Kerala and is a fast growing metropolis. The lush greenery of the campus offers a scenic, serene and tranquil environment, conductive to study, contemplation and meditation. There will be opportunities within the campus for students to practice dignity of labour through campus related operation and maintenance works.
Men students are accommodated in a hostel which is supervised by resident warden while women students are separately housed in a bungalow under the full time care by the resident lady matron. There are also resident faculty accommodation in the Campus. Tremendous opportunity exists in developing cross cultural awareness through interaction among more than half a dozen language groups and cultural mix of scholars now represented in the campus.
Plans are underway to add additional facilities for Student family accommodation, Faculty accommodation, Academic block, Library and Multipurpose hall, as the Lord provides funds.
