Since its establishment in 1965, the Pacific Theological College has been focusing on indigenous and contextual postcolonial education, deconstructing critically on the colonial and neocolonial models that had shaped the pacific churches and society. Its faculty and graduates for years have been producing alternate thinking captured in writings through intensive research in theology that challenges the conventional colonial narrative. They have become key realities in the lively hoods of our people leveraging and influencing the rethinking and liberating movement of the pacific island people.
