Our History

The Theological College of Southern Africa was founded in 1965 in Harare (Zimbabwe) as the Theological College of South Africa. It was originally started by the Assemblies of God as a correspondence college to train men and women for the ministry.

In 1971 the college moved to the Johannesburg area and became a residential (full-time) college for several years. Later on, the name was changed to Theological College of Southern Africa (TCSA) and in 2001 it was moved back to Zimbabwe where it is currently based.

TCSA currently operates three centers of learning in Zimbabwe: Bulawayo, Harare and Gwanda; Bulawayo being the main center. Outside of Southern Africa, TCSA operates under the name of International Center of Theological Studies (ICTS). In 2011 the entire curriculum was revised and the teaching methodology as well as all the course material was overhauled in order to bring TCSA up to date with the latest trends in educational technology while maintaining its thoroughly biblical foundations.

Over the past 46 years TCSA has successfully trained countless pastors, teachers, evangelists and other church leaders. Many of its graduates have gone on to earn higher degrees at seminaries and universities all over the world. Alumni from this institute are in leadership positions in different denominations and groups in different countries.

We thank the Lord Jesus Christ for what has been accomplished at TCSA and we pray for the ability to endure as we continue to train and equip the brethren.
