South Asia institute of Theology (SAIT) is a non-conventional, Bible centered, theological institute where class room and practical work go hand in hand. The goal is to provide a balanced ‘in service’ training for those who are already involved in the Lord’s work as evangelists, pastors and Bible women. They are in a class room five days a month and the remainder of the time out in the field where theory is put into practice. This revolutionized method of Theological education will give students around 150 credit hours and enable some to go for further studies. Those who successfully complete 60, go 120 and 150 credit hours qualify for a Diploma in Biblical studies; Diploma in Theology; Graduate in Theology or Bachelor in Theology respectively.
