CTS is at capacity and suffering from a lack of space for students and faculty. Because of the growing student population, students are being forced to live off-campus at much higher costs. This project provides a place that trains students who will carry the hope of the Gospel throughout this dark continent.
DESCRIPTION: CTS opened in 1959. This Pentecostal center for higher education was birthed to provide training and education in an international environment, which prepares men and women for Christian ministry. This project will include the construction of a women’s dormitory with additional housing for married students. Another wing of this facility will be a cafeteria. The Chateau, the main building, will also be remodeled to expand the library space.
BENEFITS: Strategically located in the “capital city” of Europe, CTS is poised to help strengthen and renew the Church in a highly secularized European context. Educational opportunities exist for Bachelors and Masters Degrees and, in the near future, doctoral studies. The new dormitory building will provide housing for additional undergraduate students, and meet the demand for housing married and graduate students, as well as continuing education opportunities for pastors. The new cafeteria will meet the continuing needs of a growing student body, as well as a place to host events. The remodeling of the Chateau will greatly expand space for faculty and administration offices. These facilities will prepare students to reach this post-Christian culture with the good news of Jesus.

"Over the past year, the architectural drawings were completed and paid for with funding from Builders International donors. Several adjustments were required to the plans before final approval was given by the government agency.
All permits have been received and have been paid for by Builders’ partners.
Strategic funding for the project includes the sale of property in Brussels owned by Assemblies of God World Missions. A contract for the sale has been finalized with the closing pending.
The bidding process is underway for the construction of the dormitory/cafeteria. Upon the selection of a contractor, a timeline for construction will be announced."
- CTS Project Champion, Carley Touchstone
Thank you for your extravagant generosity and partnership in seeing this project furthered! Although we won't stop until the job has gone from "dirt to done." At this time, would you please pray for CTS? Especially for (1) the sale of the property, (2) favor in the bidding process, and (3) that it would be finished ahead of schedule!
God has great things in store for CTS!

Great news was received from Continental Theological Seminary in Brussels, Belgium on Friday, April 19, 2020!
Even though CTS is on lockdown (like the rest of us) because of this pandemic, we just received word that the architectural firm completed the design work and the building permit has been approved by the local government!

CTS New Dorm Rendering Fly Around
Aug 14, 2019
The Builders Dinner at GC19 was “very profitable” for Continental Theological Seminary (CTS). Dr. Dimitrov, President, did an outstanding job presenting the challenge of reaching Europe and beyond. The challenge was presented by Don Ross, Superintendent of NW Ministry Network. The result was $325,200 committed to construct a new dorm and cafeteria. The goal by August 1, 2020 is $500,000.
CTS does not have enough dorm and apartment space on campus for the growing student body. Married students are being required to live off campus at a high cost to make room for single students. Would you consider making a faith commitment? If so, please let me know at email@example.com.
Jim Wellborn, a staff member at Builders, made some photos of the dinner to share with you. By the way, please feel free to post on this site as well as ask your Facebook friends to like this page.
