MJTI is the world’s only fully online graduate school for Messianic Jewish higher education.

The other day I got a note from an aspiring Messianic Jewish rabbi from Guadalajara, Mexico. He desires ordination as a rabbi, but cannot travel outside of his own country to study.

A couple of weeks ago I received a similar message from a man in a similar position living in Jerusalem. Until a few days prior he had never heard of the Messianic Jewish Theological Institute.

Both are excited. They want a top-notch education, but both have travel limitations. Thankfully, MJTI’s unique position as the only fully online Messianic Jewish graduate school is exactly what they need to further their education, their careers, and their life of faith. In fact, the gentleman from Jerusalem has already applied and has been accepted!

As the new academic year begins, our staff is excited. New and returning students from around the globe will be filling virtual seats. We’re proud to be able to overcome geographic barriers with a little technology, a bit of passion, and a whole lot of faith. It’s such a great joy to be able to offer MJTI’s sophisticated, well-rounded, passion-filled, Jewishly authentic, Messiah-centered programs to these two gentlemen and others around the world.


Because from Guadalajara to Jerusalem and beyond, you can study with us—anywhere there is a solid internet connection.
