STS, Theological Seminary in Sabah


Sabah Theological Seminary (STS) is the first theological seminary in Malaysia to offer theological studies in the Malay language. The great relevance of the Malay language department is evident from the fact that it is the most visited department. The department enables the indigenous population to attend seminaries as well as to interact with students from other ethnic groups. There are currently 21 faculty members teaching at STS. The number of students is about 350, of which 49 percent are women. In addition to its educational offerings, the STS has also steadily expanded and professionalized its social initiatives. New training courses in social work, pastoral care, counseling and communication have been introduced. Mission 21 supports the Malaysian-language department of the STS as well as the "Jireh Home" children's home, which grew out of an STS initiative. In addition, Daniel Gloor, an ecumenical staff member of Mission 21, has been working as a theology lecturer at the STS for 15 years.
