Supporting Theological Education in the Caribbean




Who We Are

The Caribbean Evangelical Theological Association (CETA) is a network and support service for evangelical theological education. Our mission is to promote excellence in theological education in the Caribbean through professional association and quality control. Our objectives are to provide for professional association among administrators of Bible Colleges and theological schools throughout the Caribbean, primarily through an Association Meeting held biennially, and to assist in the development and promotion of standards of excellence among member institutions.


CETA’s Accreditation Commission offers academic accreditation at post-secondary and graduate levels in order to stimulate the improvement of theological education by developing standards of excellence, encouraging self-evaluation, and securing academic recognition.


CETA sponsors conferences, workshops, consultations, and training seminary throughout the region as well as biennial consultations and local chapter-sponsored national seminars. Click here to read the press release from our April 2022 Consultation.

Library Development

CETA administers a library development programme which provides library books to member institutions at 50% discount. More than 24 major international publishers cooperate in this service.

Scholarly Journal

The Caribbean Journal of Evangelical Theology (CJET) is an annual academic journal that promotes scholarly study and research; provides a forum for the expression of facts, ideas, and opinions from a Caribbean evangelical theological perspective; and stimulates the application of this research to the Caribbean region.


You will agree that the education field is changing at a rapid pace these days. Today, we are witnessing breathtaking developments, which were hardly thinkable a decade ago.

While these amazing breakthroughs hold exciting opportunities for theological education, they also come with challenges that cannot be ignored. If we are to make the most of the opportunities and effectively meet the challenges that face us, we need to work together.

This, of course, is precisely the reason our association exists. Its raison d’etre is to promote and facilitate cooperation among persons engaged in the provision of evangelical theological education in the Caribbean region. If theological education is your business, there is room for you in the CETA family.
