Why an M.T.S. programme in Friedensau?

From its beginning in 1899, Friedensau was seen as a school to serve an international constituency. In 1906, a Russian department was added, which prompted the arrival of many students from various parts of Russia. This vision contributed to the rapid growth of the school attracting more than 250 students by 1912. The department flourished until the beginning of World War I.

Today, large numbers of students are coming to Central Europe in order to profit from the insights and experiences of the Old World. Naturally, many are looking to Germany as the country where theology received and gave its most lasting inpetus.
