The Baptist Theological Seminary is located in the city of Novi Sad, in the northern part of the country of Serbia. We are a theological institution of the Serbian Baptist Union, dedicated to training pastors and Christian leaders for effective service. For over 70 years BTS has been training men and women for the pastorate and Christian leadership in and out of the church. Some of our graduates have gone on to obtain higher degrees from other institutions in Serbia as well as other countries.
The seminary started in 1939 in the capitol city of Belgrade, just before World War II. With the help of Southern Baptists the building was purchased for this purpose as the first students enrolled. Unfortunately, this new seminary had trained just one generation of leaders when the war stopped it at its beginnings. After the war ended, BTS moved to Zagreb, then to Daruvar and finally to its present location in Novi Sad. Godly men and women throughout the years of its ministry led it faithfully and contributed to what it stands for today - a solid educational institution for training Christian leaders and pastors.

New Testament Exegesis
I love the goal of international, Christ-exalting, theological famine relief. And I love the way God has raised up Training Leaders Int’l to meet that need with real-live, Spirit-filled, human teachers, on the ground, face-to-face with pastors and Christian leaders who have little or no opportunity for in-depth theological training. May the Word of the Lord run and be glorified!
John Piper / Desiring God
The vision of Training Leaders International brings biblical and theological content to the people best positioned to pass it on to others. Most forms of short-term mission are fraught with troubling downsides, but this pattern of transferring serious theological nourishment is enriching both parties to the glory of God.
