Brief History

Tedim Christian College (TCC) is located at a very strategic place of Yangon downtown area. The venue is No. 156A, Baho Road, Sanchaung Township, Yangon. TCC is a private Christian school founded on Feb 20, 2000 with the commitment to be a learning center for promoting theological education to witness presence of Christ and contribute Christian value to the 7.3 million metropolitan populations in Yangon city particularly and all over Myanmar by and large. The College was established as B.Th Extension Program of Myanmar Institute of Theology, Insein, and the graduates received MIT’s B.Th certificates from 2004 to 2015. In 2015-2016 Academic Year, MIT freed all the B.Th affiliation schools including TCC in order to focus on her own graduate and postgraduate programs. Then, TCC becomes a sister school of Tedim Theological College (TTC, Tedim) which is a full-fledged accredited school of ATESEA. Both schools, TTC and TCC, are under the umbrella of Tedim Baptist Convention. Beginning from 2015-2016 academic year, TCC conducts her own graduation service until today. TCC is a member school of Theological Education Department (TED) of Myanmar Baptist Convention, and of Association for Theological Education of Myanmar (ATEM), a cooperate body of Myanmar Council of Churches.  The motto of the College is “learning, teaching, serving.”

There are two main programs in the school: Theology and Arts.  Theology program offers M.Div, B.Th and Dip.Th preparing the candidates for church ministry. TCC accepts and trains interdenominational students from different parts of Myanmar. The Arts program offers Diploma in Business Management, Diploma in Social Work and Diploma in Church Music. In Arts program, students from other faith and ethnicity are enrolled every year.  

In this report, we describe only theology program selectively as we are seeking accreditation on theology program.
