As an approved school of the Union of Messianic Jewish Congregations (UMJC),  Messianic Jewish Theological Institute (MJTI) serves the Messianic Jewish movement by providing advanced education and training for those seeking ordination within the UMJC. MJTI also furnishes educational opportunities for any qualified students who seek an in-depth understanding of Messianic Judaism that is academically sound, spiritually vibrant, and sensitive to the demands imposed by both the past and the future.

MJTI consists of two schools:

  • The School of Jewish Studies (SJS)
    • Offers a fully distance-learning Master of Jewish Studies degree, with concentrations in Scripture, Rabbinic Literature, or Interdisciplinary Study, all taught from a Messianic Jewish perspective
  • The Rabbinical Ordination Institute (RO’I)
    • RO’I offers practical courses in congregational leadership. RO’I also provides spiritual and vocational direction for Rabbinical candidates. While SJS is a distance learning program, RO’I offers intensive, face-to-face courses given in conjunction with UMJC conferences and retreats.

MJTI offers courses required for the UMJC Madrikh (Licensure) Certificate and Smicha (Ordination).
