Welcome to the South Asia Institute of Theology

We are a non-conventional, Bible-centered, Theological institute where classroom and practical work go hand in hand, SAIT has endeavored to provide a balanced 'in service' training for those who are already involved in the Lord's work as evangelists, pastors, or people in ministry. MESA-GST is our graduate wing for those who desire higher degrees.

One Campus is located at Bambarakelle near Norton Bridge in the highlands of the island near the Knockelsrange mountains, between the world-renowned tea gardens, and the other one is in the Capital city, Colombo.

In 1989 the institute started under the auspices of HOMSA Lanka and was called Rural Pastor Training Institute. After 20 years, the name was changed to South Asia Institute of Theology (SAIT,  to extend our help to pastors all over South Asia. 
The diversity and creative delivery of Theological education have set us apart from the highly predictable city-center-based education that is being recognized. The large gap between rural and urban Theological Education has been our concern for more than 33 years.

For the SAIT E-College have we a selected number of courses as the final year for a BTH degree (Bachelor after Bachelor - BAB for SAIT students after the BA degree)

Next to the BTh, we offer a MA in Theology and a D.Min. We have a unique system of the same course - a different level. For more courses, we work, among others, with Credo-house.

Now we have extension campuses in Antwerp Belgium and Mbeya Tanzania.
