About the Theological Institute

The Kingdom Restoration Theological Institute is an upper-level school of theology in St. Louis, Missouri. It was established by New City Fellowship of St. Louis in 2017, and is located on the NCF campus at 1483 82nd Blvd. in University City, a St. Louis suburb. KRTI’s purpose is to train men and women as pastors and leaders in the St. Louis area, and will also include such training for existing global mission partners in Kenya, Togo, Rwanda, Democratic Republic of Congo and Myanmar. KRTI is in the process of developing an urban ministries elective, where men and women will be equipped and mentored in the skills necessary to plant and grow cross-cultural ministries to minorities, immigrants and the poor. KRTI offers courses designed to give its students low cost, full-orbed seminary-quality training in biblical, reformed theology.

Degree Format

Classes will be conducted in ten eight-week sessions, meeting four times per year, and twice in the final year.  Students will read, listen to or watch the material at home and meet on Tuesday evenings for a brief exam, followed by instruction and discussion from a qualified teacher, with input from available local pastors. At the end of each eight-week session, the Certificate level students will be required to write a paper based on assigned lectures, to assess their critical thinking skills.  Associate degree level students will be required to write a more comprehensive paper based on additional lectures or readings.

Affordability

Existing “brick and mortar” evangelical seminaries, while providing superb theological education, are expensive and this factor alone often makes it difficult if not impossible for many to obtain a theological education, even when that is their life’s desire. KRTI wants to make excellent theological education available to all who want it, and thus its tuition is very affordable. While traditional seminaries typically charge between $500-$700 per credit hour, KRTI’s tuition is less than $50 per hour. It is our goal and expectation that no qualified candidate will be turned away for financial reasons alone.
