Tampa Theological Institute was formerly Suwannee River Bible College of Live Oak, Florida. Started in 2007, the burden for a Bible college with an emphasis on local church methods was the original motive behind the college and it has been a successful expedition.
As the ministry relocated to the Tampa Bay area, the need to change the name was apparent. Suwannee River Bible College became Tampa Theological Institute in 2018.
Tampa Theological Institute is a conservative Christian college operated by the Brandon Baptist Tabernacle in Brandon, Florida. We have determined that anything that is not connected directly to a local church has a brief shelf life. Through the evident blessings that God has showered down on Brandon Baptist Tabernacle, TTI benefits from the direct byproducts of local church emphasis.
