Faculty

OTS is particularly confident of the faculty whose input is critical to its success. Besides the high academic credentials of the faculty, they also bring with them rich empirical experiences as pastors, missionaries, and administrators. The current faculty strength comprises 15 members, 9 with doctoral degrees and some in various stages of completing their doctoral candidacies, having pursued or pursuing degrees in Australia, Canada, Europe, Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, and the United States. Educated in some of the finest theological institutions in the world today, the faculty is intent on the concept of “co-learning and co-serving” pedagogy.
