Tyrannus Online Seminary was birthed from the vision of one man, Professor Dr Paul Cheng, who 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. It 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.
