Institute of Theology and Christian formation (ITCF)

Introduction

The Institute of Theology and Christian Formation (ITCF) is a long-running programme of the Centre that was begun jointly with the Presentation Sisters, Rawalpindi, in 1989. ITCF is apart time lay training programme for Christians in the Rawalpindi/Islamabad area. Its aim is to enable students to develop a deeper relationship with God and help them in gaining wisdom for the application of Christian beliefs in their daily social and interfaith interaction in the pre-dominantly Muslim society. Classes are held on Wednesday evenings at the Centre and we offer a 3-year basic certificate course and a one year advanced certificate course.


Theology in Pakistan

The Theology in the Context of Pakistan program seeks to encourage theological reflection on Christian discipleship and the practice of mission and ministry in the context of Pakistan. The initiative is ecumenical in approach and mainly aimed at those who are working or ministering in the Church. It aims to provide direct opportunities for theological learning and reflection and to provide resources that can be drawn on by others.
