Securing the Future Donation Form
All donations will be used to secure QTC's future, which might include options other than purchasing the Spring Hill building.
We thank you for partnering with QTC to secure its future.
The work of the kingdom of God does not stand or fall with the fate of QTC. However, as we seek to serve the local church, equipping all sorts of people for all kinds of gospel ministry on the ground, we do believe that if QTC were to cease there would be a real impact on the work of the gospel in Queensland.
Our students come from a wide range of backgrounds (denominational, cultural, regional). Whether they study full-time or part-time, during the day or after work, in-person or online, for credit or simply to be better equipped to serve, they all leave QTC with a clearer grasp on how to handle the bible, share the truths of the gospel and serve Jesus and his church wherever they go.
Over the last years we have worked hard to build a teaching faculty and a support team who are committed to seeing gospel-shaped leaders trained in our challenging world. In 2017, the PCQ bought our current building so that we were able to move to Spring Hill after many years in less than ideal facilities in a part of the city which was difficult for many students to access.
Here at QTC we are deeply passionate about people but we also are very aware that our physical surroundings have a huge impact both on student enrolments and student experience. That is why we are so committed to securing our building for the future if at all possible.
Should we have to move from our home in Spring Hill, the flow of gospel workers from QTC would be seriously impact.
Our building enables our ministry to flourish, and so we want to secure our accommodation to enable the ministry to continue.
We are very aware that buying real estate in the heart of Brisbane is a significant commitment of precious kingdom resources. However, we have not come to the decision to seek to raise the funds needed to purchase 369 Boundary Street lightly. It is possible, of course, that we fail in our attempt to purchase the building (either because we do not manage to raise sufficient capital or we lose out in an open bidding process). However, even should this happen, we would still need to find a home for QTC which has many of the features of our current building.
In May, the Board wholeheartedly committed to pursuing the option of buying the building as 'Plan A'. However, we are committed to continuing the ministry come what may, and so alongside the latter stages of the campaign, we will consider and further develop alternative strategies, should the purchase not be possible. In any case, we will need substantial capital resources to secure our future.
We are seeking support to enable us to secure the future ministry of QTC. All donations given will be used for that purpose, even should efforts to buy our present building fail and we need to find an alternative home for the College.
We would love you to join us in praying that God would work in this challenging situation for his glory and the advance of the gospel in Queensland. Please also consider partnering with us financially if you are able to do so, as together "standing firm in one spirit, with one mind, we strive side by side for the faith of the gospel" (Philippians 1:27).
Our situation is time-critical. We are seeking donations straight away. This will put us in the best position to discuss a possible purchase of the building with the Receivers.

You can get in touch with Gary Millar, Principal of QTC, at email@example.com or Carling Reid, our Partnerships Assistant, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively call QTC on 61 7 3062 6939.
"QTC is by far the strongest theological training college of its kind in Queensland, and one of the strongest in Australia. Money devoted to its strengthening and growth is well invested."
Emeritus Professor of New Testament, Trinity Evangelical School
Cofounder and Theologian-At-Large, The Gospel Coalition
"QTC has an incredibly valuable part to play in the advance of biblical gospel ministry in Australia and further abroad. The preparation of the next generation of Christian leaders must be our priority for the health and growth of the churches. Please support this strategic initiative.”
Principal, Moore Theological College, Sydney
"In a day when so many voices and pressures in our world seek to diminish the church or divert the church from its mission, we need theologically trained leaders more than ever. I thank God for the solid training in the scriptures provided by Queensland Theological College and pray for its continued impact throughout Australia and the world for years to come.”
Author and Bible Teacher
"Establishing QTC in its own facilities is perhaps the most obvious strategic investment for the sake of the gospel in this country. Any money given will establish a secure base for this critical work, and then repay itself 100 times over in gospel impact for generations to come. This work is a multiplier, a generational multiplier. All of us need this work to thrive. Give!”
Senior Pastor, EV Church, NSW
Chair, Reach Australia
"It is now 15 years since I became personally acquainted with QTC. Over that time I have seen it become a strategic link in the chain of gospel ministry in Brisbane and beyond. Through its faithfulness to the Bible as the word of God and a commitment to rigorous yet warmly devotional teaching, it has earned a deserved reputation as a place where students will receive a well-rounded, conservative theological education. It has been a joy for me to mentor students training at QTC, and see firsthand God working in demonstrable ways as this training bears fruit in their lives and ministries.”
Emeritus Pastor of City North Baptist Church
"It’s hard to imagine a better eternal investment than training the next generation of Christ-like men and women for gospel saturated ministries. QTC is such an investment.”
National Director, Australian Fellowship of Evangelical Students
