2. Location: MTC is located on the compound of the ECM Higher Secondary School in the South-Eastern part of Siaha Town.


3. MTC Motto: The MTC Motto is “Spiritual Maturity, Academic Excellence”. We know that it is never easy to balance academic achievements and spiritual maturity in terms of faith. Hence, it is our vision to guide our youths, missionaries, Church elders and deacons, who might join this college, to give the best of their talents for the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.


4. Aims and objectives: Our aims and objectives include:

a. To train and equip missionaries for their missionary services.

    problems and issues facing the land.
