The Leadstar Christian University traces its establishment to 2016 even though theology was one of the faculties founded under Leadstar College of Management and Leadership from the year 2012. Theology was offered on a distance basis back then. The primary objective of the faculty was to meet the need for trained human power both in Ethiopia and beyond. The Leadstar Christian University went through various transitions from a faculty with few instructors and students to a full-fledged university.
The name “Leadstar Theological College (LTC)” was coined in 2016 and the college began its work as an independent entity. LTC started its teaching activities with two to three full-time workers and a maximum of four part-time instructors and had about 80 students. At present, the organization is renamed as Leadstar Christian University and it trains more than 1500 students from all over Ethiopia, South Africa, Saudi Arabia, Arab Emirates, etc. There are more than forty centers across the country, well-established administrative and faculty offices, good academic library both at Leadstar Christian University and Leadstar College of Leadership and Management; it has also a digital library with more than 30,000 copies of books.
