Welcome to Great Harvest Bible College

  • Our Mission and Philosophy Great Harvest Bible School is an institute for theological studies in Chennai, India. We strive to prepare dedicated workers for the “harvest fields” and to equip servant leaders to face the challenges in this generation, with the Scriptural Knowledge, Skill and Passion to be a torch bearer for Christ to touch the lives of the people with the transforming Gospel in South West Asia. All the subjects are contextually relevant so that students can make a significant impact in their Churches, Mission Fields, NGOs and Bible Colleges and Seminaries—for the glory of God.
  • Ps Sunny Abraham and his family dedicated their lives to reaching out to the lost in India in 2004. The ministry of Great Harvest began in Chennai's slums, reaching children and planting a church the following year. During his ministry, the Lord revealed to Ps Sunny Abraham the importance of establishing a solid foundation for a mission-focused training center in India. Thus, in 2010, Ps Sunny Abraham and a group of like-minded individuals gathered to pray fully establish a mission-focused theological training center. The goal was to establish a higher theological training center to prepare people for twenty-first-century challenges. Great Harvest Bible College was founded on the conviction that effective native leaders were needed to lead the indigenous churches in India. The following year (2011), with enthusiastic support from church leaders and prospective students, the College was established with a one-year course module in Morai Village, Avadi IAF, India. Great Harvest Bible College has a 5 acre landscaped campus with a chapel, office, separate men's and women's hostels, a dining hall, and a play area. Following that, Ps Sunny Abraham (Director) and Ps Samuel Christian (Principal) guided the college in the right direction in succession. In 2022, the college underwent a name and leadership change. Ps Sunny Abraham continues to serve as director, while Ps Sunil Thomas has become the principal of the institute. Great Harvest Theological Institute is now the official name of the college.
  • FROM THE Founder’s Desk Dear Prayer Partners, Greetings to you in the name of Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! In the year 1973, I along with my wife received Christ as our personal Savior. From that very point, God has given us a heart to serve the Lord and blessed us with three wonderful children. Following, we as family committed our lives and prayed that our children would rise up as God’s Servants in this generation. At the right moment, God touched my youngest son Sunny Abraham and envisioned his heart with a great passion to reach out the people with the Gospel. That was an answer to my fervent prayer and now I can see all my children in one way or another involved in supporting and for the ministry.
  • Greetings! It’s a privilege and honor to be a servant in God’s Kingdom. I am humbled to testify about Him, for Who He is and what He has done in my life. In 1997, God touched my life and I set apart my life to serve Him faithfully. The vision enlarged and the Lord helped me to start Great Harvest Bible College in order to glorify God and exemplifying the body of Christ in evangelizing unbelievers for eternity. In obedience to the Great Commission, our vision is to share about the transforming Gospel of Jesus Christ to the most unreached people in Asia and then to educate and equip native leaders within the community, for serving to their own people through pioneer church planting ministry and changing society for the glory of God.
  • Dear Friends, In Jesus' name, I greet you with love! Thank you for clicking through these pages. I believe this is not a coincidence, but rather God's plan to give you a better chance of making the right decision in choosing the best place to fulfil your vision to serve the Lord.

We, as a team of dedicated and qualified God's servants with a burden and true passion, work sincerely and carefully in training the young people by nurturing them with God's word. Hence, I welcome you to the family and fellowship of Great Harvest Theological Institute. The primary goal of the Theological Training Program at G H T I is to prepare men and women to achieve the highest academic excellence and to know Jesus intimately through the study of God's Word, so that they can be a powerful witness for Christ in this generation. We value the holistic development students' lives and ministries, which would comprise their academic, spiritual, hands-on, and personality formation. Yours in His Ministry Ps.
