Jubilee Memorial Bible College

  • 31, Bible College Main Road, Urappakkam, Chennai, Tamil Nadu 603210

Jubilee Memorial Bible College St. Thomas Evangelical Church of India (STECI), a reformed wing of the ancient St. Thomas Church in Kerala, South India, always sensed the need of a Bible College Admission designed to meet not only her ministerial needs but also to help train students for other churches.

Jubilee Memorial Bible College It was for this purpose that the Jubilee Memorial Bible College, a Silver Jubilee Project of the STECI, was founded in the city of Chennai (then known as Madras) on 15th of August 1987 at Sishyashram premises, Annanagar. The institution was inaugurated by Rev. K. O. John, STECI Sabha Secretary with the Very Rev. P.T. Chandapilla as Chairman, Rev. Thomas Abraham as Principal, and Rev. Varghese Philip as Registrar.

During the first six years of the College, only a few students could be trained due to inadequate facilities on the Annanagar campus. The need for relocating the College to a more spacious campus was being increasingly felt. Consequently, in June 1993 the College was shifted from Annanagar to the present campus at Iyyancherry in Urappakkam, which is about 10 km south of Tambaram and 17 km from the Chennai domestic and international airports on the National Highway, called GST Road. The campus is 1 km away from the Urappakkam railway station, which is on the Chennai suburban railway system. The rural setting of the campus provides an ideal location for ministerial and theological training. The city office, however, continues to function at 36, Pillayar Koil Street, Thirumangala.

JMBC makes concrete efforts to teach students to live according to the evangelical truths revealed in the sixty-six books of the Bible. Much emphasis is placed on the life of discipleship in godliness, faith, and prayer. The members of the Faculty, who live and minister as a fellowship, consciously try to demonstrate the principles of faith and discipleship and challenge the students to join them in following the footsteps of the Master-Servant, the Lord Jesus Christ.

JMBC is functionally under the authority of the Board of Governors of JMBC, which is directly responsible to the Jubilee Memorial Trust (JM Trust). JM Trust is responsible to the executive council of the St. Thomas Evangelical Church of India.
