KFTS is now KFTC

KFTS has officially changed its name to "Kanana Fou Theological College" (KFTC). In the coming weeks, the website address and institutional emails will reflect this change. The current website and email addresses will continue to work for some time, but they will redirect you to the new addresses as they become available.    

KFTC will host OBSA Conference in 2023

KFTC will host the first of two Oceania Biblical Studies Association (OBSA) conferences on April 5 - 7, 2023 (Malua Theological College will host the second conference on August 30 - September 1, 2023). The first conference coincides with the celebration of the Kanana Fou Theological College's 40th anniversary. Please click on the links below for more information.

Becoming a Student of Kanana Fou

Kanana Fou accepts students from all cultures, ethnicities, ages, nationalities and backgrounds.  We currently have international students from Tonga, Australia, Samoa, Tuvalu, New Zealand and the United States.  We accept enrollments for both male and female students, single and married, aged 21 years and over.  

Students undertake a four year journey in fellowship  surrounded by the beauty that is the South Pacific. With a focus on pursing academic excellence in combination with physical service to the community, Kanana Fou is the perfect place to learn everything necessary to prepare you for God's mission, starting with a Bachelors Degree in Divinity. 

For non-Samoan international students, entering into training at Kanana Fou is a once in a lifetime cultural experience that will never be forgotten.
