About Us

Tyrannus Online Seminary was birthed with the desired to see lay Christians have the opportunity to be theologically trained to handle the Word of God in order to be equipped to serve the Church.

Our History

Tyrannus Online Seminary is a non-profit and non-denominational organization whose goal is to provide theological education online to Christian working adults through a flexible learning mode. Tyrannus Online Seminary Sdn Bhd was established on 28th October 2014 with the Company Commission of Malaysia (CCM/SSM) and changed its status to Tyrannus Online Seminary Bhd on 4th March 2015. It is currently run by a Board of six members who come from various denominations. Dr Anthony Loke was engaged as a consultant principal from April to November 2017 to spearhead and launch the seminary. Tyrannus will be seeking full accreditation with the Asia Theological Association (ATA) for its diploma and degree program.

Our Purpose and Vision

Tyrannus Online Seminary seeks to make theological education more accessible to the laypeople. It is our desire that lay Christians be equipped with a basic theological degree. The Tyrannus online program uses blended learning through online videos, podcasts, workbooks, student forum, faculty mentoring, and streaming videos. We are currently running the DipTh and BTh programs.

As a basic degree, the Tyrannus BTh prepares and equips a Christian with sufficient theological training in order to serve in the local church or a Christian organization. After graduation, the person will be able to pursue further studies (e.g. the professional Master of Ministry degree or MMin) from elsewhere.

Seminary Logo

The name ‘Tyrannus’ comes from the book of Acts chapter 19 verse 9: ‘… (Paul) withdrew from them, taking the disciples with him, and argued daily in the hall of Tyrannus.’ The apostle Paul spent two years in Ephesus teaching and grounding the Christian disciples with the Word and engaging in fruitful discussion with the local populace of Ephesus so that it is recorded that ‘all the residents of Asia heard the word of the Lord, both Jews and Greeks’ (v. 10). The seminary’s name reflects the same desire to teach and ground Christians everywhere with the Word so that they can eventually engage with the world at large.
