Calvary Theological Training Center
In the summer of 2008, the decision was made to allow the Greensburg campus to operate independently from the main campus, and through this process the name of the Greensburg, PA campus was changed from Central Theological College of Southwestern PA to Calvary Theological Training Center.
Our schools are built upon the over 60 years of work and study of the late Dr. Paul E. Paino. In 1969, in Fort Wayne, Indiana, six young men approached Bishop Paul E. Paino, requesting that he teach them about the ministry, as they each sensed a call to preach.
Thus a Bible school called Christian Training Center was initiated from the resulting need to train men and women for ministry; practically as well as theologically. As these trained laborers went into the harvest fields, churches were birthed. Calvary Ministries, Inc., International was then formed to provide a legal covering for the issuing of credentials and the structuring of local churches.
Now, Calvary Theological Training Center of Greensburg, PA is an integral part of continuing the vision that was given to Dr. Paul E. Paino in 1969 as God continues to provide an opportunity for men and women to be trained for the work of the ministry.
The founder of Christian Training Center and Calvary Ministries Inc., International, the late Bishop Paul E. Paino, always stood for excellence in ministry and a professionalism which projects great dignity throughout the minister’s area of influence. CTC and CMI have always been dedicated to helping train called men and women in a “practical theology” of ministry and that dedication continues today.
