The Christian Education Trust was formed in 1986 to provide quality Biblically- based, Christ Centred education for students of all age groups.
Stage 1 of this ambitious project was the establishment of Bethlehem College. In 1987 we purchased 120 acres and the College began in 1988. Over the ensuing 23 years, the Christian Education Trust has established the following Education Centres:
- Bethlehem College (1988)
- Bethlehem Early Learning Centres Ltd (2002)
- Bethlehem International School Ltd (1992)
- Bethlehem Tertiary Institute (1993)
These provide programmes and opportunities for quality Christian Education for students of all ages. Bethlehem Early Learning Centres Ltd now encompasses four early learning centres located across Tauranga, Te Puke and Rotorua.To assist in providing quality education, the Christian Education Trust have established Support Services:
- Bethlehem Property Services
- Bethlehem Financial Services
- Bethlehem Trading Company
These businesses support the educational entities, and provide quality services while maintaining good stewardship of personnel and finances.
The vision of the Trust continues ‘on and off’ Campus.
