COTR Seminary’s History

COTR (Church on the Rock Theological Seminary) was founded by Apostle Dr. P.J. Titus as a part of COTR Theological Seminary of Ministries. Dr. Titus was burdened with God’s vision to work in India and left his reputed job of 18 years in Dallas, United States of America, to serve in God’s vineyard. Dr. Titus decided to start a Bible College in India with the aim of training young men and women of faith to become instrumental in establishing God’s Kingdom.

The vision brought Dr. Titus and his family to India in 1981, with an aim to give it a shape and structure. After fervent prayers and support of many concurring people around the world, the vision of reaching one billion souls for Christ began with the purchase of land in Bheemunipatnam.

The COTR College of Ministries and New Testament Church of India were registered and began impacting India. Dr. Titus and his wife, Mary, were also concerned with the plight of lost and orphaned children in India. So, in addition to the church and Bible College seminary, he established the Nava Jeevan School and the New Life Children’s Home. Over the years, Dr. Titus looked to expand the scope of the ministry in order to maximize the impact he could make in reaching the spiritually starved.

The Bible College ministry campus now incorporates the New Testament Church, Nava Jeevan School, New Life Children’s Home, and Jyothi Hospital.Dr. & Mrs P.J. Titus God placed a heavy burden on the heart of Dr. P.J. Titus for the people of his native land of India. Dr. Titus had a divine vision to serve the needy fellow humans in India.
