Seeing the Need
Many Christian leaders have spent their lives training and educating foreign nationals around the world, helping them become effective spiritual leaders in their own countries. It has long been understood that spiritual leaders need academic credentials in order to continue this effective training of their own people. Dr. Magdy Ghabbour, Dr. Clayton Nuttall, and Pastor Frankie Matthews, along with other Christian supporters, purposed to form a college to meet the needs of these national Christian leaders. They realized the many advantages of training national leaders in their own culture. In 2005 the National Theological College and Graduate School formed its own board and was incorporated in 2008.
